A letter to Bristol Palin

Dear Miss Bristol Palin

I want you to know I admire you and thank you. I want you to know that you are not alone. You have millions and millions of women just like me standing with you. Do not be discouraged and do not be afraid. You are a young woman of strong conviction. You may not have intended to become pregnant at the age of 17, but stay strong as you are far from alone. Millions and millions before you have walked in your shoes, but none of us have been subjected to MSM slime you have endured over the last few days.

Hold your head high. You have shown yourself to be made of far greater stuff than those who have attacked you. Wednesday and Thursday night you will find you are not alone. When you step out on that stage with your mother, father and family please know that those thousands in the arena are also cheering for you and there will be millions and millions more of us at home cheering for you as well. We care about you. Millions and millions of women and men, mothers and fathers are taking you into our hearts this week. You are not standing alone.

So congratulations on your baby, congratulations on your engagement and coming marriage. You are in my prayers and the prayers of so many across this nation.
