From Deep in the Heart of Texas…Happy Texas Independence Day!
Today Texans celebrate their Declaration of Independence, signed in 1836. Texas remained a sovereign nation until it joined the Union in 1845. There are those who might prefer we had remained our own country because we do tend toward being independent cusses;) (and possibly a number of folks outside the state wish we had, too!) but on one point all Texans can agree: Texas is a state of mind, a larger-than-life concept, and no matter how far away we might find ourselves residing, deep in our hearts, Texas is always home.
