I Braved the Storm in PhillySubmitted by belovedheart27 on Sun, 04/22/2012 - 21:40
I have been a Paul supporter since 2007, and this was the first time that I have seen him speak live. We left from NY by bus, and made a few other stops before arriving at Independence Hall. I was able to secure a spot on the side of the stage! It was an amazing event. I expected to feel the way I felt, but I was in shock an awe at how much we have grown! 4000+ people battled horrible weather to be a part of this event. We were dressed to the nines in our ponchos.
The spirit of liberty enveloped the entire area. I traveled with a group of 52 supporters and many have never seen him in person either. One woman on the bus said, "I would not do this for a rock star. I would not even do this for the Pope!". The fact that people from all over traveled and endured such horrible weather for hours to hear one man speak is amazing. This does not happen for any other candidate by any stretch of the imagination. I am so proud to say I know so many Liberty minded people now and to be a part of something so large that it cannot be stop.
