Citizen honored to have met Palin
To the Editor:
I recently had the pleasure of meeting Sarah Palin at a book signing in Noblesville.
After a long, cold day of standing in line with over a thousand strangers, the moment of shaking her hand and her signing my book passed in seconds.
When it was all over and the faithful stood in the dark to watch her bus pull away and head off to the next destination, I was approached by an Alaskan journalist. Now, there had been local news reporters there all day and I am pretty good at being inconspicuous, keeping the microphone from my mouth and the camera off my face, but she caught me off guard.
She asked me questions like "How long did you stand in line?" "Do you intend to read the book?"
Simple enough to answer, but then she hit me with the real purpose of her questioning to find out "Why Sarah? Why does the former governor of Alaska mean so much to you?"
Since six o'clock that morning I had been part of a great host of like-minded people; I would not have needed to explain to any of them why I was there, but she asked, so I answered.
In a time when you can no longer tell the right from the left, Sarah stands firm on her morals and principals, the same ones that the majority of Americans share. When most of our "conservative" politicians are more concerned with being politically correct than doing what is right, Sarah puts the good of the country and the country's people first.
When faced with such slander as no politician has faced since Abraham Lincoln she did not hide in Alaska, but wrote a book and went on tour.
Sarah is the kind of woman that I want my children to emulate -- a true Conservative.
