The time has finally come. Patriots arriving from all over the country…as individuals, groups of strangers, mom, dad & the kids, suddenly sitting, talking and walking together, all with American flags, US Army, Marine, Air Force and Navy insignia t-shirts, hats and uniforms…we recognize each other perhaps by spirit, that which drew us here and millions more in support of our Country.
For the 90-year old woman with the sign ‘don’t pull my plug’, a local Washingtonian, reinforcements have arrived. Her smile lit up the whole avenue.
For the bearded veteran, who came from San Diego, who sat quietly in the hotel restaurant, waiting for Patriots to see his sign “I did not vote for obamanation”, and thumbs up all around the dining room.
Greetings like, “hello Patriot”, “thank you for coming”, ‘thank God you are here”, and “USA USA USA”… And that very interesting and palpable sense that ‘I have seen you before’…as if we have been connecting over time and over the ethers for all of time.
For our wounded soldiers at Walter Reid, hundreds of people stood at the entry way, cheering, thanking our troops, flags waving, horns honking…..
To the ROAR that went up from the crowd when it was announced that the Census Bureau has broken all ties with ACORN…
To Representative Joe Wilson, who raised $700k in 24 hours after his bold statement to Obama, ‘you lie’…
For the informed and educated Americans, who are not going to take it anymore!
For the spontaneous songs, “God Bless America”, “America the Beautiful”, that greeted the Tea Party Express Bus as it rolled into a parking lot filled with hundreds of people.
For the 4,500 buses that have permits to unload passengers in DC for the march, and ‘all the charter buses in Ohio that could be rented are on their way to DC’, to the dozens of bikers spotted on a freeway headed to DC…
It is palpable. It is real. The Rise of the American Patriot. The Rally for the Republic. The Million Patriot March on DC.
