Viva la independencia

It won't get one-tenth the attention here in Texas of Cinco de mayo or the 16th of September, but today is the anniversary of the Texas Declaration of Independence, an enormously nervy maneuver that has served us very well until recently, when the invading hordes from Mexico have bid to cancel the breach. Took really brave people to do what they did, the Texian patriots who cut the ties.

Bless you for remembering, Loon. I fear there are too many who don't. Anyone who wants a taste of what this day is all about should visit Washington-on-the-Brazos, Independence Hall, Fannin Battleground and the San Jacinto Monument. My heart will forever belong to the Texas flag. Long may she wave.
