  • This morning started out watching the rain fall as I ate breakfast and drank my coffee. Mornings don't get much better than that, it really sets the scene for a good day. It was busy, but the productive and cheery kind of busy, not stressful. I even managed to fit in a run as well, and that always makes a day more pleasant. This evening was the first of what I hope to be many Ag Advocacy meetings. The "Farmer's Fight" movement took its first steps tonight, with students from many different agriculture related clubs, fraternities and organizations came forward in interest of defending our majors. A few students came only associated with a website, ilovefarmers.org. They too hold a special place in their heart for those involved in agriculture. A Yahoo article wrongly deemed all of our agriculture majors useless. We came forward to organize a movement on Texas A&M campus to remind everyone how much we are needed. Unless they are hungry and naked, they are a part of agriculture. It amazes me that agriculture can play such an enormous role in the lives of everyone, and yet so easily it is forgotten. Don't forget the agriculturists, we play a larger role in your life than initially thought. I headed home from that meeting more fired up than I have been in a long time. Eric was of the same fiery disposition. The day began with rain and ended with a kiss.
