Mother Nature, AKA the Great Spirit, is fixing to put the hurt on Texas. But what you do today might make a difference.
Once upon a time, in 1901, the Texas legislature named the bluebonnet the state flower. According to the Texas State Historical Association, some Indian lore said that this pretty flower was a gift from the Great Spirit.
Flash forward over a hundred years and three special sessions to solve the education crises in Texas, and the bluebonnets are dying.
Perhaps the Great Spirit is displeased with the way the Texas Legislature has repeatedly mucked up school finance despite three special sessions and millions and millions of wasted tax dollars. Perhaps the Great Spirit thinks our current governor Rick Perry speaks with a forked tongue when he tries to claim that everything is A-OK with Texas' education system.
What can you do to make the Great Spirit smile upon Texas again?
Remember, only you can save the bluebonnets.
