Happy Independence Day

Today is Texas Independence Day!

The Texas Declaration of Independence was adopted on this day in 1836 in the small town of Washington in an unfinished, windowless & doorless building. Early Texans didn't consider themselves Mexicans or Americans, and the creation of the Republic of Texas gave birth to not only a dream, but to a mystique.
Texas Independence Day is an official holiday in the State of Texas where we celebrate our distinctiveness. Texans really are a different breed and March 2 is to Texans what St. Patrick's Day is to the Irish.
Happy Independence Day to my fellow Texans!
