Being #TexasTough was exemplified by William Travis on this day in 1836 when he wrote to his fellow Texans declaring that he would never surrender or retreat from the Alamo. Today, Texans still don’t back down from a challenge – the Lone Star State will always be Texas tough!

Business & Commerce public hearing tomorrow @ 9AM to examine:
-Extreme weather preparedness
-Power outages directed by ERCOT

Their toughness was spent trying to defend their rights to own human beings against an anti-slavery Mexican government. Such a waste of lives.
