‘My God, what a woman…’

That headline sums up my thoughts exactly, and it’s the lead comment on the article that’s spreading like wildfire.

If you read one article in the next week — even next month — then you need to read this article about an incredible woman. She sacrificed herself for her daughter and for her city and refused to bow down to violence and intimidation from drug cartels.

I read our country’s history books and think of all the great leaders we had — many of whom were killed or shot down in service to — not even a country — but an idea. And as Mexico fights for its life, against impossible odds, similar heroes are stepping up down there.

Here’s the link to the article. Make sure you read it, and then compare what she did to the self-serving, immoral cowards we have leading us across much of the country.

P.S. Please accept the greatest gift I can give.

P.P.S. Thanks to all who continue to make my novels a success. I seriously couldn’t have done it with everyone’s support. I’m excited to say that Little Man, and the Dixon County War  has gone as high as No. 16 on the Amazon UK Paid List (see here and here). My second novel, Sold Outhas also done well, also, going as high as No. 81 on the Amazon Paid List for the category of War (see here and here). Learn more about both books here.

    • I know. I’ve re-read the article twice and I’m still just speechless. I like to think I’m brave, and that I would have done the same, but I’m not sure I know that for a fact.

      It’s a fact that I followed some brave Marines in my day, and I can say without hesitation that I would follow this woman into the gates of hell, despite the fact that the Corps won’t let women serve in infantry units.

  3. What sort of evil does it take to do what they did to her, more so, to any human being? And why hasn’t the Mexican government done something about it? Corruption. Money. Power. Until WE as a nation do something to stop the flow of drugs across OUR border, this kind of mayhem will continue. It’s already happening in the border states. I guess it will have to hit the big cities before something is done. Oh, wait. It already has. Semper Fi.

    • Yeah, securing our border would be a great start. My next Nick Woods novel involves Mexico, so I’ve been researching it, and one of the things these sophisticated thugs do is use innocent travelers to ship their drugs.

      They pay local locksmiths in Mexico to read your VIN number and then unlock your car and they hide contraband in your truck or elsewhere. Then they add a tracking device and recover the drugs in America.

      Of course, some people are busted by dogs at the border and they have no idea how drugs got in their car. Worse, SOME of these people end up in prison…

      These drug cartels are unbelievable, and they’re clearly destroying the country.
