On April 21, 1836, Texans won a decisive battle. In about 18 minutes our Texas heroes won the battle of San Jacinto and the future of Texas was defined.
That same Texas spirit that drove Texans back then to put their lives on the line for a better life is still alive today. All across our grand state men and women are fighting to ensure Texas has a prosperous future. As Texans we need to support each other to be the best we can be, live honestly and work hard so we all can succeed.
On this day, I want to remind Texans of the sacrifices that were made to ensure that future generations could live an independent life. We should be thankful of our past and remind Texans that we have an obligation to continue this legacy and I can’t think of a better day to do that than on this day as we remember our heroes of San Jacinto.
