I would like to introduce Taegan, our newest Liberty First intern. She describes herself as:
~Iowa Native. Hillsdale College Student. Aspiring Attorney. Jesus Follower and Kingdom Worker. Avid Reader. Frequent Shopper. Developing Cigar Connoisseur. Pursuer of Truth and Defender of Liberty. The Future of America.~
Taegan has decided to write a blog every day describing the Liberty First life. So, in lieu of our regular #Point2Ponder I will be posting Taegan’s #LifeLibertyLaw blog.
I joked the other day that Taegan is like my Doctor Watson. I find these blogs very entertaining and inspirational. I hope you enjoy reading about our adventures as much as we love living them. ~ In Liberty, KrisAnne
I’m So Excited, And I Just Can’t Hide It
by Taegan James
I’m baaaaaaack! Those song lyrics really capture how I’m feeling right now. Boy does it feel good to be back at Liberty First. I am so happy to have the opportunity of traveling with KrisAnne again, and to have something to finally write about again. This time we are in the beautiful state of Alaska, and I could not be more excited about the coming week. I have never been this far away from home before, but the three flights to get here have paid off so far. Many of my family members have expressed their jealousy that I beat them to Alaska (sorry Dad), and now I know why. I’ve only seen a tiny part of the “last frontier,” but I’m already convinced that this is the most beautiful state in the union. Any wilderness lover would be on cloud nine here; I know I am… I already have a sweatshirt, t-shirt, and hat to prove it. I’m not sure how I feel about the periods of endless daylight or darkness, but Alaska is surely a destination everyone should visit. I admit, I have sort of missed this whirlwind lifestyle of travel. Despite the crazy sleep schedule that comes with these trips (currently experiencing a 3 hour time difference), I love going to different places. The sights, sounds, culture, cuisine, and people make traveling so exciting. Most of all, I have missed the feeling of being a part of something so important, and so necessary. Yes, preserving liberty is an everyday choice and action, but being a part of Liberty First is beyond rewarding.
This week I will get to sit in on some classes that I didn’t get to hear during my time in Idaho and Florida. I am thrilled to be able to learn more about constitutional law enforcement, Article V and nullification, the founding mothers, and duties of state and local legislators. These are whole new subjects and classes that I get to be a part of and take thorough notes on (nerdy, I know). I am trying to learn as much as possible during this internship, and there is so much to learn. I want to soak it in like a sponge and really grasp these concepts and principles so that I may be able to spread them myself. KrisAnne Hall cannot possibly reach and educate everyone, but all those who hear her speak are capable of spreading the message. One thing is for sure, I am going to do my part in the fight for liberty. I am not quite sure what exact role I need to play, or what the future has in store, but Liberty First is certainly helping me lay a strong foundation. I am so excited to continue on in the journey of education and liberation, for myself, but also for all those I aspire to reach.
Pursuing truth and defending liberty, always.
