ago today Texas declared its independence from Mexico and became the Republic of Texas. We were a sovereign nation before joining the Union by treaty which is why the Texas flag flies at the same height as Old Glory. We have a rich history of brave men and women whose fortitude, independence and maybe just downright stubbornness have given us our reputation of pride and a love for our state that runs deep in our hearts.
From the Great Plains to the Gulf Coast, the Big Bend to the Piney Woods we are a state of diverse climates and culture. I am a Texan born and bred! If I could live anywhere in the world, I still would choose Texas. Give me land, lots of land with starry skies above. Don’t fence me in!
This one is a rerun but one of my favorites about my favorite part of Texas….my home.
