A big turnout for President Donald Trump took place in Homer, Alaska, on Monday evening.
The local news media didn’t take notice that 200 people from around what’s known as the “Cosmic Hamlet” rallied for the reelection of the president.
At Lands End Resort on the end of the Homer Spit, the crowd spontaneously joined in as young Aspen Etzweiler and Hannah Gerasimof sang the National Anthem. Many in the audience were moved to tears.
Speakers during the two-hour event included remarks from Rep. Sarah Vance and Borough Mayor Charlie Pierce. Singers Kenny Lee of Nashville and Stephen Patrick of Alaska, author and singer of Vote America Great Again, entertained the crowd.
Vance reminded the audience that “Our children are watching us, as we weep over our nation. They need to see that there’s hope and that we are winning,” she said. Alaska has not yet stepped into her destiny and the best is yet to come, was her message.
Pierce told the crowd that if they want to see change, they need to get off the couch and get involved, run for school board, and engage with local political leaders. He gave a rip-roaring patriotic speech to a crowd that was greatly approving. Check out the clip from the Must Read Alaska YouTube channel, as Pierce talks about the American flag:
