A Woman I Respect

October 22nd, 2008

Sarah Palin

When I saw Sarah Palin’s VP acceptance speech, I thought to myself, “Wow, this woman is impressive.”

And then I watched her during the VP debate and continued to marvel at how much I related to her.

Finally, I watched her fantastic one-on-one interview with CNN (that I highly recommend everyone watch) and my love for Sarah Palin was officially solidified.

There are so many things I love about Sarah Palin.

I love that she is honest and polite.

A mother of a large family.

And married to the same man for 20 years.

I also love that she believes marriage is between one man and one woman.

That government has a small, specified role.

And beyond that role, they shouldn’t be allowed to grow too large and interfere with people’s lives and the free market.

But most of all.

I love that she is pro-life.

And that when she was pregnant with her youngest child and found out he had Down Syndrome, she welcomed him with open arms.

To me, how a person treats the most helpless and innocent among us is the truest test of one’s integrity and compassion.

And when she was faced with that test.

Sarah Palin passed.

With flying colors.

That’s the kind of person I’d like to help lead our country.

I agree with all of that very much and the most important thing to me, that I respect the most about her is her unwavering faith in the Lord and not being afraid to stand up for what she believes in, even if it isn’t whats “popular” like some of the others!

That’s a great point, Katie! I actually don’t know much about her faith (it hasn’t come up in any of the interviews), but assumed she was a Christian. That’s awesome and makes me love her even more!
