In an attempt to make our appearance on the liberty scene as a fledgling YAL chapter, four of our Spring Hill College YAL members attended the Students for Liberty New Orleans Regional Conference. The weekend ended up being an amazing, refreshing, and inspiring weekend. When I first joined YAL, I wasn't sure about what kind of people were involved in the liberty movement, but after attending the SFL Conference I discovered that it is the best kind of people that take liberty to heart. Not only did I meet fellow leaders within YAL, I also bonded with these people over liberty and so much more.
The conference was infused with powerful rhetoric, thanks to speakers such as Jeffrey Tucker (who I also had the pleasure of stealing a dance with!). One of the things that stuck with me the most from Mr. Tucker's speech was the optimism of the Liberty movement, and how this optimism will enable our generation to make a change. We also had the pleasure of hearing from various other speakers such Walter Block, Alexandre Padilla, and Dan D'Amico.
Even after the conference, the topic of liberty stayed with me the whole way home. Mainly due to the fact that I heard inspiring things that are too good to stop thinking about. It seems as if all I can talk about is liberty and spreading the word about the positive impact it has on our country!
