Every writer’s dream is to tell a story that defines history.
One man’s story has not ended and continues to shape history to this day.
“Of old Thou didst found the earth; and the heavens are the work of Thy hands. Even they will perish, but Thou dost endure; and all of them will wear out like a garment; like clothing Thou wilt change them, and they will be changed. But Thou art the same, and Thy years will not come to an end.” – Psalm 102
“See what you have to ask yourself is what kind of person are you? Are you the kind that sees signs, that sees miracles? Or do you believe that people just get lucky? Or, look at the question this way: Is it possible that there are no coincidences?” – Graham Hess (Mel Gibson) in “Signs”
In today’s chaotic times it’s easy and completely rational to fear for the future. All around the Twitterverse the sentiment among Conservatives has spanned the gamut. Yes, we’ve encountered a set back, but I will continue to maintain that all is hardly lost, and we’re really not in as terrible of a position politically as it may feel right now. It’s easy to forget the steps we’ve taken and from where we’ve come. Many who are active in the movement now do not even know what it was like to be an activist in 2008 following the first election of Barack Obama. That is a sign of how far we’ve come, not that we’re worse off than before.
I’ve never expressed enough how much I appreciate *everybody* in the Conservative movement who work tirelessly and honestly to defend the principles of America’s founding. Sometimes in the passion and frustration of heated debate I’ve done the opposite, and these failings too have turned into growth experiences for me. I’m truly grateful to have met so many wonderful, good people over the years. Being apart of the Tea Party since its start has been a life & world changing adventure.
