Good Tidings And Great Joy Media Roundup

New thread as the Governor wraps up the first leg of her book tour.

Via Facebook:

Thank you to all the folks in Arkansas who joined us this morning and to the staff at Sam’s Club. You guys inspire me! Looking at some articles this morning I’m reminded of exactly why I wrote this book. Schools bullied into not playing religious themed Christmas songs – even if the music is instrumental? Schools threatened by Angry Atheists Armed with Lawyers because students participated in Franklin Graham’s Samaritan’s Purse’s “Operation Christmas Child,” a beautiful program that distributes gifts for children in need. (My family has been honored to work in this worthy cause with the Grahams, including their mission’s work in Haiti).

The Scrooges are emboldened whenever we cower and back down in fear of a protracted legal fight. But I also see evidence that good people are standing up and saying, “enough is enough.” I’m confident there are more of us who stand tall than just fall for complacency and political correctness run amok at Christmas time. Come share your heart and let’s work together to honor the Reason for the Season.

Here’s a video from the Tyler, TX signing:

New and old friends gathered in Kansas tonight – including Robert and Shirley Hemenway (see them in the photo) whose son Ron worked for the Chief of Naval Operations at the Pentagon when he was killed on September 11, 2001. Ron graduated from Wasilla High School with Todd and me, and he was a wonderful young man from a proud and selfless Alaskan family. Ron will never be forgotten. It’s remembering 9/11 that makes us appreciate sacrifices made for our freedoms, and should stiffen our spines to defend them.

Thank you to everyone who joined us, including the thoughtful Barnes & Noble staff. It’s inspiring to note in these book events, especially notable tonight in Kansas, the multiple generations of families traveling together to express their concern for America and encouragement to fight for what’s right – as so many people brought their kids and grandkids. Family patriarchs and matriarchs talked about the importance of influencing younger generations so they’d respect, honor, and protect our exceptional nation. It’s in that same spirit we seek to protect the heart of Christmas. Leaning into the strength you provide, good Americans, we will keep the faith!

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
