Today was the day of a lifetime! I spent my morning with Governor Sarah Palin! What an amazing, amazing...did I say amazing...experience! She is in Auburn, NY celebrating 50 years of Alaska's statehood. William Seward, who spent much of his life in Auburn is largely responsible for Alaska becoming a state, so Auburn is celebrating Founder's Day--and the governor of Alaska made the long trip from Alaska to the lower 48 to take part in this celebration.
I also have to give a "shout out" to Meg Stapleton, Sarah's spokesperson, who made this possible for me. This is her hometown, and there were plenty of other things she could have concerned herself with, but she opened a door for me that, I know, was God-ordained.
I have always wanted to come to Auburn because Harriet Tubman's home is here. I, as a descendant of the family of Harriet Tubman, always knew I'd visit one day, but who would have thought that I would come to meet Sarah Palin?
Okay, enough. Look at a few pictures. I'll just post a few, but more will be coming after the rest of the events this weekend. I really would like to hide the picture I took with Sarah today because it's not a good picture of me, but this weekend isn't about me; it's about Sarah, and Alaska, and Auburn, so I'll post it anyway and hope to get a better one of the two of us before the weekend ends. Enjoy...
