Road Trip, {Day 27}

One week from today my family and I will be the Restoring Honor Rally at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. 

We are soooo excited!

We are teaching our children that it's important to STAND UP for what you believe in.

We, as Americans, no matter what your political views are, your religious beliefs, the color of your skin or your economic background...each one of us has a God Given Right to STAND UP and let our voices be heard.

I am PROUD to be an AMERICAN.

I am THANKFUL that in our great Nation each one of us is allowed to express our own beliefs.

We should be able to have our own opinions and discuss, in a civilized way, our differences.

In today's volatile, political environment I was hesitant in sharing our trip on my Blog. It is not my intent to offend anyone but rather to share my life with you.

That's what I do here...share the bits and pieces that make me...ME.

I believe in STANDING UP for what I believe...

But I also believe that you should STAND UP for what YOU believe...even if we don't agree.

Ok, on to our CHALLENGE!! I really love this one:)

Creative Challenge Day #27 Today's Challenge extends through the weekend. I want you to choose a THEME WORD for the weekend. Mine is AUTHENTIC. I want to be AUTHENTIC all weekend! Be me. Do those things that align with who I really am. What WORD will you be this weekend??


  1. Stopping by from SITS.

    Happy Saturday.

    Have a safe and awesome trip!

  2. Love it, Les! I have been trying to be more authentic myself, lately. I hope that you guys have an amazing, memorable, and safe trip! Can't wait to hear all about it.

  3. This weekend's word is going to be breathe (and maybe relax next to that). We are on the last day of the county fair and tomorrow is clean up...remembering to just stop and breathe and taking a moment to relax will pull me through.

    Enjoy your trip. What a powerful experience to share with your children.
