Sarah: Devoted Mother and Tireless Advocate- A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

Sarah and Todd Palin are phenomenal advocates and supporters of our troops, but you didn't need me to tell you that. This past Thursday, they attended a welcome home ceremony for the 1st Stryker Brigade from Fort Wainwright. This ceremony was particularly important to them because their eldest son, Track, is a member of this brigade. Not only were Todd and Sarah there to congratulate the other young men and women, but like other proud parents, they were there to show their support to their son who just recently returned from Iraq.

What I really admire about the entire Palin family is not only their devotion to one another, but their devotion to our troops. As the mother of a service member, Sarah personally knows the hardships and daily struggles endured by other family members whose fathers, mothers, wives, husbands, sons and daughters are sent to distant lands to protect our freedoms. As a young woman, whose
own cousin is in the Airforce, I truly admire the courage of all of our brave men and women in uniform. It is far too often that many forget the sacrifices these young men and women make for us. It is so important that we remember to not only support them, but to thank them as well. As I have stated in previous posts, just a simple hug or "thank you" mean so much.

I wanted to write this random thought post today to illustrate yet another example of Sarah the advocate. We know that she is an advocate for so many individuals. Not only is she an advocate for children with special needs and young women, but for our troops as well. It is easy for one to say they support the troops, but once again, Sarah not only talks the talk, but walks the walk. Although we can all agree that what Sarah does for our troops is a great thing, there are those hypocrites out there who will attack her for doing what is right. Oh well, you can't please them all, especially when those who speak out against you have enough problems and are not worth the time.

We know Sarah the mother, we know Sarah the tireless advocate for so many great causes. She is a woman who does not need a formal title because she is a mom and a wife. She is a daughter and a sister. She is a grandma and an aunt. These are the important titles- I would argue the MOST important. Sarah is proving that it does not matter who you are, for we can all make a difference. She is proving that social network sites like Facebook can be just as effective, or even more effective at spreading the message of common sense. Isn't this great to see? Sarah may be out of office for the moment, but she is definitely not going anywhere. I believe God has a purpose for everyone, and God has Sarah exactly where he wants her to be. Thank you, Sarah, for your tireless advocacy for us "Mainstreet U.S.A." folks. It is because of hard-working individuals like you that we are being heard.
