Over the last 2 weeks or so, Patriots have gathered in our nations capital of DC. Some have been there since day one — Manny Vega to name one — and others have come for a few days but then had to leave — A.J. Watkins & Bill Looman just to name a couple.
They are there to send a message to the TYRANT in the White House.
These men & women are our “Modern Day Version of the Magnificent Seven”
A statement from Mr. A.J. Watkins (one of the Ten)
I just got home from D.C. a little while ago. I spent the weekend supporting, and standing alongside some amazing men and women who are standing up for our constitution, our rights as American citizen’s, and our way of life. Some of these great patriots are veterans, some are civilians such as me, and some were immigrants who are here legally.
I am humbled, yet came home with a sense of honor, pride, and heartbreak. These men and women have been there since day one, they have been mocked, ridiculed, and called names, such as racist, cracker, and several other derogatory remarks… myself included.
I had the privilege of having dinner with these folks, and shared in comradery, stories, and saw them as more than Military, more than Patriots, I saw them as American’s, people who are flesh and bone, people who have emotions, understanding, and truly care for each and every last American Citizen in our great country.
I came home and kissed my wife, and children, and immediately thought about how hard life will be for my children if things continue the way they are… then i thought about how great our country would be if everyone would care for each other the way these men and women care for each and every one of us.
I literally am broken right now. My heart hurts for our country. When people will rush out to buy a material item to save $15 on thanksgiving day and leave their families, and not even consider that there are people who fight for our country over seas, and here on our own soil, at our nations capitol, who don’t get to see their families on thanksgiving, or birthdays, Christmas… I am truly heartbroken.
We have lost our way, we need to come together and fight back… take our country back… And restore our values, our morals, and our way of life.
I’m sorry if you think this is a rant or a guilt trip. It’s not, but maybe it should be… I am just overwhelmed with emotions.
I want to leave you with this one last thing….
Please reach out to someone you know who is fighting or has fought for your rights, overseas or here at home, and just tell them you appreciate them. Let them know that no matter what, you believe in them, and their cause, and you respect them.
Goodnight, God Bless
