Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today posted this Status Update on Facebook:
I’m proud of Willow and her Alaska girlfriends, Sarah and Kelsea (both Northern Arizona University students studying Special Education), spending last weekend raising funds for tomorrow’s declared day to show respect for those with special needs. These three teens have hearts for those who face greater challenges than most of us will ever face; their sincere efforts to embrace and support innocent lives is inspiring! I’m blessed to have them spend their precious time with Trig, too. Their friendship with our little boy gives me great hope for America’s next generation of leaders.
Here is a photo of the girls, and I’ll also be posting some recent pictures of Trig Paxson Van Palin a little later. He’s thriving. He’s rowdy and curious and fun and challenging and beautiful in our eyes, as all children are. We’re thankful for this life. I’m thankful God replaced fear of the unknown with new perspective that affects every aspect of my life. These children deserve protection and basic respect. That’s what Willow, Sarah and Kelsea are promoting tomorrow. So thank you, you Alaska Chicks with warm hearts!
