I have used this photo all over my content for ten years now. Kendall Gelner captured it that frosty February morning in 2009 and included it in this photo shoot.
I gave the opening speech at the first Denver Tea Party.
After leading the attendees in the Pledge of Allegiance and the singing of our beloved National Anthem, I sang the final verse of the Star Spangled Banner…
“O thus be it ever
When Free Men shall stand
Between their loved homes
And the wars desolation
Blessed with victory and peace
May the Heav’n Rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made
And preserved us a Nation
Then conquer we must
When our cause it is just
And this be our motto
“IN GOD IS OUR TRUST!”
And the Star Spangled Banner
In Triumph shall wave,
O’er the Land of the Free
And the Home of the BRAVE!
Then I gave a brief overview of the book Atlas Shrugged and shared three ways that individuals and families could “Go Galt.”
I pointed to my kindergartener whom I had brought with me who was holding the American Flag and said,
“My Husband and I did not give this child life so he could grow up to be a socialist slave. We birthed him in FREEDOM and we will do everything in our power to make certain he is able to grow up free and decide for himself how to live a happy life.”
I am so grateful for those who captured photos and videos from this first important event.
Here are a few interviews I compiled in this one video!
