social network for conservatives
Whether it’s a Believer who shares the gospel on a busy sidewalk, or a protestor standing along the highway holding up signs or flags in 100 degree weather – one things is certain. These people aren’t merely content to sit at home on the couch, watching television and eating ice cream. Rather, they’ve come to a point in their lives where they believe they can be silent no longer, and must speak out in defense of that which they hold dear. Karen is one such person.
Missouri Tenth had the opportunity to conduct an interview with this inspiring lady, and find out a little bit about her efforts in educating and encouraging those around her with the truth. While it’s not an easy task, and often requires sacrifice, folks like Karen understand that it’s ultimately not about us – but about the future we’ll be passing on to our children.
Karen was born in Georgia, lived out her youth in NYC, and has now been in Virginia for about 17 years. She says that her views and feelings about America and the South have changed since she has matured. “I was of course much more liberal in my younger days, but since I am a mother I have grown up a lot.” Karen states. “I have to be responsible for my children, and I feel it’s my duty to try to teach my children about individualism, and what our wonderful country was founded on.”
A working single mother who spends much of her time Flagging and going to Confederate Events, Karen points out that, “ I don’t want to be used or treated as special because of my skin color, but I know I do. I don’t take offense or feel like a token, because I like what I do. I have never felt unwelcome at any event I have been to. If I was ever treated badly I wouldn’t be there. I just do this because I understand the principles of why the South seceded – and if it was me in these Southerner’s shoes at the time, I would have done the same.”
