Can I have some wholesome values with that Chicken please!
Chick-fil-A appreciation day showed great support for traditional values, freedom of religion, and freedom of speech. It was a bigger success than anyone could have imagined. If you went to Chick-fil-A you know that the lines were wrapped around the building and the drive through was backed up to the streets like nothing we have ever seen before. It is my understanding that Chick-fil-A broke records in service and revenues on this one day. And in Chick-fil-A's across this nation, they continued to provide great service and good food to all of their customers, while saying, "It was my pleasure to serve you,” with a smile.
Some will try to make light of this day, some will mock what took place and some will get confused about what this really was all about. This was not about the chicken, Chick-fil-A, Mr. Cathy, or profits; although for fast food it is pretty good. This was about something bigger than any one event, person, or corporation! It was a statement by the American people about morals, values, principles and beliefs! I have heard from people I know in different areas of this nation from Michigan, Texas, Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Ohio and they all report the same thing...massive turn outs in support of traditional values. Reports across this nation show that this was a historic event where good people took a stand and rallied together in support of something they believe in for the good of our society. The demonstrators proved to be good people who believe in a cause, that love all people, love their families, love their communities, and love their country. There was no hatred, bigotry, discrimination or intolerance; only people standing up for what they believe, trying to make a difference and make a statement.
So let me say thank you for Chick-fil-A; thank you Mr. Cathy; and thank you everyone who came out in support of this cause...because Mr. Cathy took a stand for what he believes in and was ridiculed and attacked, good citizens across this nation took a stand and showed support for him, his corporation and for something bigger than ourselves - traditional values!
I don't know about you...but I am going to eat more chicken from now on!
