Signing Up For the Liberty First Brigade:
By Taegan James, Liberty First Intern
A few months ago I received a text from my beloved grandfather that he had emailed KrisAnne Hall – Constitutional attorney, author, speaker, and talk show host – about a few issues floating around today’s political realm, and had mentioned me and a possible internship in the process. I was instructed to email her a bit about myself, explain why I want to intern for her, and what I hope to accomplish. In the hundreds or thousands of messages I have typed up, I do not think it has ever taken me so long to compose an email. I wanted to portray myself as a learned, professional individual, but seem likable and easygoing at the same time. Eventually, I hit the ‘send’ button, and anxiously waited for a reply. 24 hours felt like an eternity, but finally I saw the message in my inbox I had been waiting for. “Wonderful. Let me contact my assistant and see the best fit for your traveling with us.” I couldn’t believe the words I had just read. This was it: I was going to intern for KrisAnne Hall and had officially signed up to be part of the Liberty-First Brigade. Now, as I prepare to leave for Idaho in two days, I am experiencing a wide range of emotions. I am both excited and nervous; confident, yet timid as I acknowledge that I know far less than my mentor. Above all, I am eager to learn and soak up all of the information and experience that I possibly can. More to come in the following days; stay tuned for all the adventures (and foreseeable blunders). Pursuing truth and defending liberty, always.
