Alamo Anniversary


175 years ago, a small group of men defied overwhelming odds in a makeshift fortress outside of San Antonio for thirteen days. In the end, all were killed. Their sacrifice enabled the rest of their army to build, and six weeks later, to win independence for their nation.

Some may call them foolish for not abandoning the Alamo. But no one can doubt their courage.

My brother lives in San Antonio! I love it there and am still toying with the idea of moving there.

I have family there, and go over fairly often. It is an interesting town, for sure.
