We were blessed to have Lesli join us for HLRW’s Annual Meeting Tuesday, November 15th. We were fascinated with her enthusiasm as she shared her thoughts and feelings about the election results. She shares those feelings here for you as well.
Thank you, Sichan Siv, for your heartfelt presentation. It was moving! Thank you, Quilts of Valor, for the many wonderful homemade quilts you presented to our Veterans. It was touching! Thank you, Llano Junior High School Band students, for your patriotic music. It was inspiring! Thank you to the lovely HLRW Members and volunteers who helped make this a very special occasion! We can’t do this without you! -And most importantly, thank you Veterans for your sacrifice, your bravery, and the example you set for us all! We hope you had a blessed day.
Sichan Siv, international best-selling author of “Golden Bones: An Extraordinary Journey from Hell to Cambodia to a New Life in America”
While the United States battled the Communists of North Vietnam in the 1960s and ’70s, the neighboring country of Cambodia was attacked from within by dictator Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge. The Khmer Rouge imprisoned, enslaved, and murdered the educated and intellectual members of the population, resulting in the harrowing “killing fields”–rice paddies where the harvest yielded nothing but millions of skulls.
Young Sichan Siv–a target since he was a university graduate–was told by his mother to run and “never give up hope!” Captured and put to work in a slave labor camp, Siv knew it was only a matter of time before he would be worked to death–or killed. With a daring escape from a logging truck and a desperate run for freedom through the jungle, including falling into a dreaded pungi pit, Siv finally came upon a colorfully dressed farmer who said, “Welcome to Thailand.”
He spent months teaching English in a refugee camp in Thailand while regaining his strength, eventually Siv was allowed entry into the United States. Upon his arrival in the U.S., Siv kept striving. Eventually rising to become a U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Siv returned with great trepidation to the killing fields of Cambodia in 1992 as a senior representative of the U.S. government. It was an emotionally overwhelming visit.

List of Republican Candidates. HLRW has provided an important list of Republican Candidates to vote for (see below). Print this handy list out and take it with you to the polls. Yes, it is permissible! And be sure you do not leave any candidate unchecked!
We have less than a week left to tell Biden not to change the definition of “sex”! For the past 55 days activists have been bombarding the Biden administration with comments defying his radical, incoherent gender ideology.
Over 50,000 comments have been submitted and over 20% of those comments have been Heritage Action activists.
This is a fantastic number and it gives us the momentum we need to keep pressuring the administration to repeal this rule.
Keep going! We have limited time before this rule takes effect. Tell Biden to stop, HERE!
Share this link and spread the word. We need to bring the HEAT!
Thank you for your participation.

As we wrap up our summer break, we are having a few get togethers. We have experienced a good attendance at our other summer functions and gained new members and am looking forward to getting to know you all better.
Next week we will be having a last summer fling with 2 game days- one to be held be at the new and improved Llano Library meeting room on August 9th Tuesday at noon to 1:30 and the following week on Thursday the 18th at the Kingsland library from 6:30-8 pm.
This has been a difficult year with a not to pleasant beginning, but we have seen growth in areas we never thought possible. I am reminded of the scripture “a house divided cannot stand” so ladies we need to unify and come together for a common goal of not only electing Republican candidates but informing our friends, neighbors, and family about how to make their voice heard thru education, good articles, flash legislation updates, and understanding what bills mean. As an election judge for several years the comments I hear the most are “what does this mean, and I don’t know any of these people.”
This is our goal to make informed voters in our county. We must garner our talents to be effective in our county. Will you join us in this venture? Even if you only have a limited amount of time just sharing articles or videos can help on Facebook, Trump Social or next door.
We have an awesome PR person, Jessica Grabert, who will help any of us with any media questions and teach us how to network with each other so we can grow and show this county how we stand together in this fight. Thank you, Annette Sandoval, for getting us 100 pocket constitutions from Hillsdale College. Who would like to do the same?
Please consider coming and having a good time and getting to meet fellow fighters for freedom! If we don’t make a difference in Llano who will?
