Tea Time.

500 were expected but the crowd swelled to 3500. Not bad for a mid-sized city during lunch break with winds that were gusty and cold enough to warrant jackets and hats.

Fun and entertaining speakers, famous speeches recited, free hotdogs and the usual suspects were all present.
Lots of sign carryers, including a pot-bellied pig wearing sandwhich boards.

This young patriot's sign sported the quote by Thomas Jefferson, "The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not."
The kids have had a full year of campaigning, political training, reading about government and memorizing famous dates in American history. Our big take away is the complete and total understanding of why Jesus did not come as a politician 2000 years ago and why He'll return to make war and bring justice. Once again, we thank God that the government rests on His shoulders and that HE has it all sorted.

We went to our county TEA. It was a great turn out for our little town. My ds got a chance to speak, and had the crowd roaring. He's been asked to speak at serveral upcoming meeting. Do I see politics in our future? Oh NO! Glad you got to go and participate!
