This past weekend has been one of the most amazing, inspiring times of my life. In His Providence, God allowed Mom, Jonathon, Priscilla, Josiah, and me to hit the road to our nation’s Capitol to join other patriotic citizens in protesting the actions of our government. Instead of riding a bus for a “boomerang” trip, we decided to drive up Thursday, sightsee Friday, protest Saturday, and come back Sunday.
We usually don’t get the early start we plan on :-), but we left in time to arrive in North Carolina around lunchtime.
We had lunch with a good friend, Navy Captain Jim Kinney, who is spearheading a movement to term-limit Congress. Check out his website at http://www.inspireandignite.com for more about that. Lots of great conversation about today’s issues, especially about term limits. I still have so many questions about it since hearing it debated at Patriot Academy.
Now does this look like a radical right-wing terrorist or what??
One of my favorite moments of the day came when we crossed the North Carolina-Virginia border. I have read so much about Virginia history, and about one Virginian in particular (Patrick Henry), that just setting foot on VA soil was so special to me. Mom laughed at how thrilled I was to finally be there! And to top it off, the rest stop just inside the border was a beautiful, stately-looking building that was worthy of the location.
So happy to be in Virginia!
This is what Jonathon said when we asked if he was glad to be in VA.
Time for a photoshoot! With Priscilla, our photographer extraordinaire
Ahhhh, Virginia! One day I’m going to move there.
