I am so incredibly impressed by the dedication and spirit of the people I saw and met in St Lucie County at the SOE. Not since September of 2001, walking to and from Ground Zero in NYC, have I seen such patriotism and comradely from Americans for other Americans that they have never met before. I am deeply touched by the outpouring of genuine emotion and support from people all over this country. Although I could not keep up with all of the social media feeds, I know that there was a plethora of support from people who could not physically be there. As it did for me personally during the recovery efforts after 911, the abundance of support from friends present and the social media feeds was uplifting and very much appreciated. So many people contributed in ANY way that they could to do “Something” to help and support each other and Allen West. Allen West has done so much to bring good people together, he has inspired all of us to become engaged, informed and involved. I am so blessed to have had an opportunity to serve with a Great Man and meet so many wonderful people. I will never forget this experience, it has been one of the best life experiences I have ever had. From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank Colonel, Congressman, and my friend Allen West. Also, I want to thank each and every one of you for being such good Americans and great Patriots.
