On The Border - Connie's Perspective
January 2007 Part I
As of this afternoon we have finished one and one quarter miles of the barb-wire fence. There is a great crew out there who are working their hearts out. We have security on the Hodges Ranch and we have people stringing barb wire on the Ladd Ranch. So far the following states are represented, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Montana, Idaho, Arizona, Texas, Iowa, Colorado and Missouri.
Next week we have a new crew from other states. There are two arriving from New York. The patriotism of the men and women who come here can only be expressed as humbling. One man told me tonight after we finished working that this has been a life changing event for him and I feel as if I have made a new friend.
We have started to put up an American flag on each post. It is a beautiful sight.
Off and on during the past few days we have observed vehicles on the Mexico side of the fence heading towards the San Pedro River. One vehicle made two trips yesterday. There is not much we can do but watch because they are still in Mexico and even though we know it most likely is a drop going down, it is all happening on the south side of the fence.
Yesterday the Mexican Military drove by with six or eight soldiers in the back of a Humvee, they were all carrying rifles. They did not come back by the time we had left the fencing area.
I realize this On The Border is short, but I want to keep you informed of what we are doing and how we are coming along. If any of you are interested in coming and joining us in securing our border, let me know. I will happily sign you up.
May God bless you all,
