Standing up. Standing out.

By Jessica Domel

Everything is bigger in Texas. From our hats to our breakfast tacos, Texans stand out. 

But why is Texas great?

Is it the shape, the geographic variety or our spirited culture? 

All of the above.

But how do we continue to be the best state in the nation?

We speak up. We stand out. 

The legislative session is about to start. And like everything else Texan, it's big. It's bold. 

And it needs the voices of Texans like you and me to ensure the greatness of our grand state. 

Take 10 minutes of your time. Tell your legislators what you need to keep Texas great. Talk about water rights, transportation and any other issue affecting your area. 

Our state is large. But the divide between us and our legislators doesn't have to be. 

Voice your concerns. Do your part to keep Texas, Texas.

The preceding commentary is brought to you by Texas Farm Bureau, the “Voice of Texas Agriculture.” Called “Your Texas Agriculture Minute,” TFB will issue thought-provoking editorials each week—via print and audio—to spark understanding of agriculture in the Lone Star State and its impact on each and every Texan.

You may read this week’s editorial above or listen to the audio version.
