Day 148 – Atlanta, GA – Columbia, SC
November 2, 2010 Election Day
Hopefully everyone went out today and voted for the candidates of their choice. Our military men and women sacrifice everything to protect and defend that right and I thank them everyday. The best way I believe to be grateful for their service is to exorcise those constitutional rights.
Today was a travel day, headed to Georgia, however before I left Atlanta I was invited to speak at the Vietnam Veteran’s Business Association lunch meeting. This was an amazing group of Vietnam Vets, planted in the business community around Atlanta. I was given a few minutes to share the message and the vision and received a standing ovation from the nearly 200 in attendance. I was humbled by their overwhelming support and will be following up with the group as we move forward.
Off to Columbia for a 3 hour drive and staying with an Army Sergent friend for a couple of days while I prepare for South Carolina. Of course this evening spent some time watching election returns, but can honestly tell you that if I learned anything along this journey its is never to get involved in politics.
Tomorrow: Ceremony at State Capitol 10am.
