Remember the Alamo

Today marks the anniversary of an auspicious event in the history of Texas.  On this day in 1836, the valiant Texians fell to the Mexican army led by Santa Anna. (For a brief history of the battle follow this link.)

Why was the Battle of The Alamo important?  It bought time for General Sam Houston to organize the army of the new Republic.

Sometimes the battles we fight seem to be for naught.  We give our all, yet we often don't see the difference.  Sometimes the difference that we make is realized by others.  Sometimes we change the course of history by our efforts.

As Charlie Daniels likes to say in his Tweets and Facebook posts, "Let's all make the day count."
