Something I'll Never Forget

I got to experience something today that I will never forget. It was a time that made me so proud to be an American. Only my Dad knows where I was today. I don't know why I kept such a cool thing a secret, I guess I haven't had much time to let it sink in yet. If you haven't guessed yet, let me give you a hint...



That should give it away, but in case it didn't...here's another.



Getting a little more obvious now...



By now I hope you've realized that I attended a John McCain rally. The only thing that could have made this better would have been an actual appearance from John McCain and Sarah Palin. However, since they just wrapped up the convention yesterday, we all knew it was extremely unlikely for them to be there today. However, miracles can happen- right?


Do these two look familiar?



That's right. They were there. The best part, we had VIP passes. We were in the 8th row. I was about 15 feet away from John McCain and Sarah Palin when they concluded and shook hands with many of the guests in attendance. I couldn't quite get to the front though.



This experience was unreal. I can't even explain it through the internet. I would be more than overjoyed to tell anyone about it in person. So remind me next time you see me. The whole thing made my skin crawl. The place was electric with hope and belief in America's tomorrow.

I thought McCain would pick one of the retreads from the republican party for vice president but he ended up picking a little known Governor from Alaska Sarah Palin. Inside of one week she has totally changed the dynamics of the republican party and re-energized it. I didn't think this could be done and it was sorely needed.

I agree. Sarah Palin really appeals to my generation.

cool! i like her too.

there was article on cnn this week that had a picture of obama and the caption said he was in monroe, maybe they had another thing similar to the clinton one.
