Today is Texas Independence Day! On this day in 1836, the Mexican Army surrendered to the Texan Army and we became a free nation. Hallelujah!
Those outside of Texas my not understand the sanctity of this day. You may not understand how in the world we Texans get so fired up about this. Liken it to your celebration of the Fourth of July, but just for us. Go ahead and check out the official Celebrate Texas website and educate yourself. I’ll wait.
So now you know the story of the Battle of the Alamo and the Battle of Goliad. You know our heroes cried “Remember the Alamo! Remember Goliad!” and despite being grossly outnumbered, we were able to defeat the Mexican Army. Loves it.
I found this article earlier today and shared it on Facebook and Twitter – I think you should see it too :) I understand that it may be difficult to understand just WHY Texans love Texas so much – and this article does a great job of summing it up!
I leave you with this: a photo montage of historical Texas images. May God bless you, and God bless TEXAS!
