I was on the road covering sports events today and on the radio were shows reviewing the events of the past decade.
While certainly not a good decade for the country, and there went plenty of low lights for me personally, there were some grand moments as well.
After all, I got married in 2002, the same year and just a month later than my brother. We got our first house a year later. My wife became the first in her family to graduate from college in 2005. My parents retired to our family’s ancestral farm in southwest Wisconsin this decade as well to breed dairy cows.
On the political/intellectual side, I attended my first John Randolph Club meeting in 2006. I still haven’t fogotten the wonderful time I had at the TRI Summer School in 2001 just a few months before 9-11. And of course, there was the Ron Paul campaign that took up two years, 2007 and 2008. I have some great memories from that experience and I’m glad to see so many people I’ve met along the way still active as a new decade begins.
What are some of your memories from the past 10 years? Please chime in before 12 a.m. Jan. 1.
