Celebrating Sarah Palin’s Coming Out Party One Year Later

Posted by Adrienne Ross on August 30, 2009

By Adrienne Ross from http://www.motivationtruth.com

Here are my thoughts from yesterday, August 29, 2009, regarding the day Sarah Palin stepped onto the national stage:

Today is a special day indeed as so many are celebrating the one-year anniversary of the day John McCain tapped Sarah Palin to be his running mate. In fact, I just returned from New York City where I got together with some Palin supporters, bloggers, and activists. Life has not been the same since that day last year–not for Sarah Palin, not for America, and not for me.

I remember leaving the mall that afternoon on August 29, 2008. The car radio was on, and I heard the announcement that Senator John McCain had chosen Sarah Palin, the governor of Alaska, to run this race alongside him. My first thought was, “Alaska?” My second thought–and I remember it so well–was, “Hillary is going to be SO mad!” As I was not at all a Hillary supporter, I relished in that thought. I did not expect Barack Obama to win the presidency–just didn’t believe he would–and I just knew Hillary was going to be ticked off that a woman had beaten her to the White House!

Later when the media was covering Sarah Palin, showing who she was and discussing her record, I was hit with an awareness that she was not just another candidate. I could sense in my spirit that there was something special about her, something godly. And I was so excited. Something on the inside bore witness that this woman was the real deal.

And then, of course, all hell broke lose, as the powers on the Left descended on Wasilla, Alaska trying to dig up dirt. When they couldn’t find any, they created their own. I have a feeling Sarah had no idea what she was getting herself into when she stepped onto that stage after McCain’s announcement. But she certainly knows now–and she has proven that she can handle herself well.

In the course of a year, I have studied Sarah Palin, admired her record, met her and her family, visited her state, and fell in love with her hometown. My mind has not changed about her. I still respect her, still believe God has called her for this time, and still know she will continue to lead with great integrity.

When Sarah and McCain lost the election, I just knew it wasn’t over. In fact, the night of November 4th, after Obama was declared the winner, I felt my world had come crashing down. But I uttered aloud, “The world has not seen the last of Sarah Palin.” I had not thought before I spoke. It simply came out of me. It was one of those “I know that I know that I know” moments. And I never prayed for Sarah–or this nation–more than after November 4th.

It took a while for me to recuperate from what was lost when the country did not elect Sarah. Actually, I’m not sure I’m fully over it yet. But one thing I do believe is true, no matter what it looks like now: For America and for Sarah Palin, the best is yet to come–and I believe the two are unmistakably linked.
