I got up at 5:30 A.M. for this and for those that know me, know this is far out of my character to get up that early!! We left home at 6:45 for what should have been an hour commute into downtown Phoenix!! Much to our surprise a terrible car accident had occurred at 6:40, closing 3 of the 4 lanes on I-10. Apparently a tractor trailer truck hit a car causing it to spin out of control hitting an RV causing it to flip over on it's side and the car ended up on top of the median between the westbound and eastbound lanes. I was furious that we Left in plenty of time to get there early and get a Great seat, once you buy your ticket, either just a general admission, Premier or Executive ticket depended on what section you sat in but seating was open, I was upset that I would not get the "best"seat, riding there with my darling hubby, I soon realized after going through all the what if's, what if we had left earlier, we might have missed this, we could have chosen a different route, we COULD have Been THAT CAR, I calmed right down and said Yes, darling hubby, my wonderful voice of reason, you are so RIGHT!!!!!The Program started at 9, we arrived at 10!!!!!! I could have driven to Flagstaff in the time we sat and drove 1 MPH for 3 hours!!!
The d.j.'s getting everyone all fired up!!!
Mayor Rudy Giuliani spoke about the events of 9/11 and how he worked with his response team to keep the city safe and get them the help they needed.
First Lady Laura Bush spoke lovingly about her family, the update on what they are all busy doing. She said it is very painful to hear all the negative things said about her Husband, but knows that is part of being in that position.
Of all the speakers, I really wanted to hear Laura Bush and Rudy Giuliani the Most!!! So Praise God I did not miss them, however I really wanted to hear Kurt Warner the quarterback of the Arizona Cardinals. He is a Great Christian Man and I really wanted to hear him speak. The main Motivational speaker was a lady named Tamara Lowe, a former drug addict, high school drop out, she said she went from LSD to PHD who only got a GED!!!!!! She even gave her testimony of how she found Christ and even gave an invitation to say the sinners Prayer!!!! Wow, what a surprise to alot of Business people there who thought they were just going to a Motivational Seminar!!!!
I heard Zig Zieglar also, but missed the rest.....but Thank God I am home safe tonight, there was no serious injuries in that bad accident, so that is good news to hear.
