About This Activity

                                                   Celebrate Texas' Message

From the deep piney woods to the Chihuahuan Desert; from the Gulf Coast to the Staked Plains, Texas has room, opportunities and challenges enough for everyone. From the days of Lorenzo de Zavala, Sam Houston and David Crockett, Texas has been the “Land of the Great Second Chance.” People have come here from all over the world to build a new life.

The land we know as Texas has never cared about a person’s skin color nor their political affiliation or where they came from or who they were or who they thought they were. Texas has always been a stern leveler and that is to say that Texas can be demanding and difficult as well as beautiful and sublime. To be successful, she demands of her people hard work, individual initiative, personal integrity, courage, self sacrifice and an abiding belief in freedom. It has been that way from her earliest recorded history and so it is today. These qualities are so much a part of the Texas makeup as to be almost genetic. These are the things that Texans believe in and unite us and they are the things we wish to pass on to future generations. They are what makes us Texans and Together We Are Texas!
