When all the world is falling down around us, we look for leaders. We look for those few amongst us that exhibit the characteristics that we wish we had. But we are all human.
We have concerns about family, income and our walk with God. We pray that we will be guided to do the right thing.
What if we were called to a task that seemed to be in conflict with our primary concerns? What if we were called to leadership on a level that confronted every thing we ever felt was the primary focus in our life? What if we were called to lead our nation?
I can't imagine the thoughts that must be coursing through the Palin family's mind. Do we take this plunge into national leadership, or do we take solace in the knowledge that we are convicted toward our love of family and stay put?
I can only say one thing. Sarah, if you believe that you're inclined to run for President, we have your back. We can't be there to guard the door, but we can deliver a withering defense of everything that you believe in.
We will defend your family with our dying breath. We will hold Trig up upon our shoulders to acknowledge your commitment to his life, because it is part and parcel to our own.
We will stand in defense of everything you say and will stand in the vanguard of your cause. We are your avant-garde and will defend you to our lives' end, in defense of this country, and in all that we call our own.
Sarah, don't ever think that you embark on this campaign without allies. You have so many more than you could ever imagine.
