The Kentucky Federation of Republican Women
January 22, 2021
Dear Members/Friends of the KFRW,
As your new President, I felt the need to write you and ask you to help the KFRW go forward. After 2020, I know we all looked forward to a new beginning in 2021. I share your dismay and hear your words of frustration.
In these uncertain times, I am asking you to think before you act. The past is full of promises, failures, victories, and embarrassments. Sometimes, we want to forget memories that are too painful. However, as the years pass, remembrances of unpleasant events usually fade into our subconscious.
There is a time to remember. Wisdom comes from using knowledge and means far more than simply knowing a lot. It is the basic attitude that affects every aspect of life.
Now is the time for us to come together, unite and make every effort to lead by example. The means we use to accomplish our goals are just as important as the goal we are trying to accomplish. Our refusal to quit is a good example of our courage to stand against what we believe is wrong and do what we believe is right.
We as Republican Women have so many opportunities to make a difference in the political landscape across our great state by promoting Republican ideals and values. We are going to disagree and have differences of opinion. Although both are choices we make as humans, we must give respect and honor to those whose choices differ from ours. We are accountable for any action we take or decision we make. The choice is yours.
Dwight D. Eisenhower once said, “Leadership consists of nothing but taking responsibility for everything that goes wrong and giving your subordinates credit for everything that goes well.” The KFRW has approximately 700 leaders who chose to join an organization whose members know that persistence is key for success and giving up is a mistake.
If we were to stop now while we still have the state of tension that now exists, I shudder to think of what could happen to this United States of America. Can we count on you? Together, we will MOTIVATE, EDUCATE and ACTIVATE!
For God and Country,
Pamela S. Roberts
KFRW, 2021 & 2022
