…As we are all so grateful for his hard work on the campaign trail.
A shout out to the great state of Wyoming! As I write this, I can see the beautiful Grand Teton mountain range from Jackson, WY. Last night our family went to our first rodeo. I start off with this because of how the rodeo started off. Before the national anthem was sung, the announcer said, “As we begin this great summer event, we will thank our Lord and God — please remove your cover.” And then he proceeded to pray for safety and for the protection of our “fighting men and women in the armed forces.” How would it be if we started every great American sporting event with a word of prayer?
As the rodeo began, I thought to myself, this is true Americana! The saying should be changed to, “This is as American as rodeos, baseball, and apple pie.” After the singing of the anthem, I was adjusting our seating and glanced over at a woman seated near me and she had tears streaming down her face. Throughout the evening’s event, the announcer kept asking how many people were from various states of the Union; there were people from every state and many from Australia and Europe.
Three days ago I was privileged to attend a breakfast event for Governor Romney. When I had the chance to briefly meet him, I asked if he would sign a sheet of paper with the MRC banner across the top. That note is just below.
Governor Romney gave a rousing speech that was given with heart and without a teleprompter; I counted five standing ovations from the group. But for me, the most significant statements he made were at the beginning and end of his speech. As he started out, he said how grateful he was for all those that had taken time out of the business week to be there to support his campaign for president. Then at the end, he made several sincere statements of gratitude. He acknowledged that many among us and many we all knew were working very hard in so many different ways to make a difference for America and for his campaign. You could tell he knows that many people are working all over this great nation in grassroots efforts of every kind. His comments were very sincere expressions of gratitude. He asked those of us present at this event to thank everyone we knew that was involved in helping his campaign.
As I made notes, I felt compelled to pass these comments on to you. Over the last several months, I have been witness to hundreds of people working all hours of the day in Facebook forums and in other grassroots areas dedicated to Mitt Romney’s election.
This note below from Governor Romney is to all of you.
We will make a difference together!
