It was a challenge to decide on a topic for my first post. There is so much that I want to share, especially with those of you that are new to all of this. After much internal back and forth with myself, I finally decided to just start at the beginning of my journey in search of truth.
As everyone knows, the election cycle of 2016 was insane! Like a lot of people, I struggled with how I would cast my vote come Election Day. I was always a Conservative, so casting a vote for HRC was never going to happen! Although I knew that HRC would never get my vote, I wasn’t sure that I could trust Trump either. Aided by the negative press, I had my doubts. As much as I wanted to believe that he was sincere, I could not get past the idea that the Left would just stroke his ego and he would cave to their demands. After all, they did run in the same circles for years. I ultimately settled for a third party candidate Evan McMullin. I knew that I was throwing my vote way, but at least I would not be responsible for putting the “wrong” person in the White House.
My Dad was a HUGE Trump supporter. He loved to tell me how great Trump would be and all of the promises that he was making. I would tell him that I hoped that he was right; I hoped that he would win and deliver on those promises, but I just didn’t trust him. Thankfully, Trump won and proved me wrong every step of the way. Sadly, my Dad passed away only a few days after the election and I never even spoke to him about the election results. I wish that he was here now to share in the excitement and all of the great things that I have learned over the years.
As you already know, the media and the Left were out of control following the election. It seemed like everyone had lost their minds. I lost all interest in news media, including Talk Radio. Everything seemed to be over the top. Right side media sources were 100% over the top praising Trump, the Leftist media, was all Orange Man Bad – TDS. It was exhausting to listen to, so I turned it all off. I stopped listening to everything and anything regarding politics. It was a nice break from reality…..While it lasted.
That all changed in the summer of 2018 when I stumbled across a video on social media. A friend of mine that rarely shares anything had shared the original #WalkAway video by Brandon Straka. This was the video that began the whole #WalkAway movement. At the time, it was only a few weeks old and the group had less than 5 thousand members. I was instantly sucked in, and I spent the entire weekend reading and watching everyone’s wonderful testimonies. Some people had recently awakened to the lies, others like me, had always leaned to the right. It was refreshing to see so many people from diverse backgrounds sharing their stories.
Words cannot describe how I felt after watching that. Suddenly everything in my world started to make so much sense. The pieces starting coming together and I suddenly felt hope again. It gave me chills and brought tears to my eyes. Normally a skeptic, and cautious by nature, my mind began to open again. What if this were true? It all makes sense, but I will tread lightly and see what happens. I ultimately found my way to great channels on You Tube and eventually to the actual Q Posts. Wow! I was blown away. Still not wanting to be played for a fool, I treated the information and my research as a fun distraction. Instead of reading a book or watching movies, I spent every spare moment educating myself, digging deeper down the rabbit holes and following the different strands of the tangled webs that I would find myself in.
Fast forward another 18 months. It was great that I was learning so much, but what was I going to DO with all of this information? Because of my career, I had to be very careful about what I put on social media. My family was getting tired of hearing about all of my crazy discoveries. What could I do? How could I make a difference? I am an introvert by nature, so making videos was not on my radar. I felt like I needed to DO something, but I wasn’t sure what that would be. Ultimately, I started a Private Group on Facebook and A Peek Beneath the Surface was born. I started with my like-minded friends and my new #WalkAway friends. Our group has enjoyed a slow but steady growth to 417 members strong with another 62 people in preview mode.
Recently, I was able to reconnect with an old friend who has encouraged me to do more with my new found passion. He has generously included me in his new website https://takinitback.us/apeek and also created for us a new platform here at A Peek Beneath the Surface. He has worked tirelessly around the clock to provide me with all of these great tools. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity and I hope that I am able to maximize these tools to assist you in your own journey for truth and to help awaken others.
Along the way, I have met so many wonderful people and made connections with people across the nation and even a few in other parts of the world. It has been incredibly rewarding to connect with so many like-minded people and to build a community of patriotic friends who share a mission. We must remain united in our continued mission to preserve our freedom.
Thank you for being here and welcome to our family! WWG1WGA!
