Voice of Freedom:

March 21st will be the first day of spring!  Let’s hope all the snow and ice is gone by then.  It sure has been an old fashioned winter.

My grandson Tyler is in Washington D. C. this week and yesterday he had a great time on Capital Hill.  He met with Senator King and Senator Collins, and got to sit in the Senate Gallery and watch the Senators vote on the important military sexual assault bill below.

There were eleven students attending from the University of Farmington and today they are on their way to the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Tyler had his picture taken with Senator King (once again) and also with (for the first time) Senator Collins.

I can’t wait to hear all about his trip when he returns back home.  Everyone knows how proud of him I am.  He will be turning 21 this month and has done more in his 21 years then some have done in a lifetime.  He is Blessed that he is intelligent, Political Science is his major, had opportunities to travel, attended the inauguration, met many of the VIP’s, a 2 year member of the Board of Trustees overlooking the seven universities in Maine and so much more.  We are one proud family.

Let’s look forward to a little bit of warmer temperatures this coming week and hope to see the snow melt away.  I love winter, but this year it was a bit too long.  Have a great week!
