Last night the 29th of April were privileged to hear from two patriots.
The surprise guest speaker was Gayle Ruzicka. She has been fighting for our freedoms for over 35 years. She literally packed up her children and took them to the Capitol with her to attend committee meetings. She has been the President of the Utah Eagle Forum for over 20 years.
Cornerstone of Freedom awarded her their very first "Defender of Freedom Award".
Representative Carl Wimmer gave us the background on the beginnings of the Patrick Henry Caucus and a taste of what it has accomplished.
Both speakers emphasized what an important part we all play as citizens. Carl said that twelve of the states rights issues that were presented in the legislative session were passed and signed by Governor Herbert. This was due largely to the pressure that came from us as citizens.
Both speakers asked that we stay engaged in this battle for our freedoms no matter how long or how boring it may become.
Both Gayle and Carl emphasized that it was only through organizing as a group that things began to happen and encouraged us get involved in what happens in our state and the country.
