Talking Texas Texas Pride

Why are Texans so proud?

            Texans have an inherent sense of state pride.  We are proud of our state and no other state can compare and they certainly do not understand. It is something that is breed into us.  Why are Texans so prideful of their state?  There are many reasons why Texas is so splendid.

            Texas has a lot to offer.  There are the piney woods of east Texas, the flats of the panhandle, the west Texas skies, the canyons in Big Bend, the lush Hill Country and lets not forget; Texas has a coast. You can travel anywhere in Texas and feel like you are in another state.

            Texas was once its own country. From March 2, 1836 to February 1846 Texas was the Republic of Texas. Our first president was Stephen F. Austin, the “Father of Texas”.

            Texas has a lot of history, a lot. One reason Texans are so proud is because our roots run deep. Many families have been here for hundreds of years and this pride has been passed on from generation to generation.

            Some people will never understand Texas pride but that’s okay. This video may help you understand.
