Right up front I’ll tell you I’m a Native Texan. Born and Raised.
And if you know anything about us Texans, you know that we’re VERY proud of our state’s unique and storied history. I was born and raised in Austin, the state capital, and I’ve been to the Alamo in nearby San Antonio many times.
Each time I’ve visited has been an eye-opening, emotional experience for me. To stand on the exact spot where the horrific seige took place; where the tiny mission full of volunteer Americans fought against overwhelming odds and ultimately all lost their lives—ALWAYS leaves me speechless with the deepest respect, admiration and eternal thanks.
Today marks the 177th anniversary of that battle. Whether or not you’re a Texan, all Americans should know about these important historical events. If you have a few moments, please jump HERE to read the superb coverage of today’s commemoration. And…“Remember the Alamo!”
