I received an encouraging email from someone who has been following my writing on a few different websites. She shared with me the link to the video below and said simply, "You are in it." That was all it took, of course, to pique my curiosity!
That was just an added benefit. The video, made by a website called Standing with Sarah, highlights Sarah Palin's stand on the health care reform issue. It combines some of her statements with pictures that speak to her own commitment to the health and well-being of Americans. Included in the video are pictures of Sarah at the Walk for Autism, which she participated in on June 7th in Long Island. I attended that function, as well, as did some of her family members, including her nephew, Karcher, who has autism. You can read about this event and enjoy the pictures I took here.
See, Sarah Palin clearly cares about how we handle health care for our citizens. As a mom with a special needs child, Trig, who has Down Syndrome, and as Karcher's aunt, she knows the importance of this issue. She is personally invested and has rallied the people of America and begged us to do all we can to keep the health of those we love out of the control of a government that does not--and cannot--love our family members the way we do. The wonderful thing you'll see in the video is the concern she has, not only for her own family and children, but a sincere concern for all Americans.
Now that's someone I can listen to about health care.
