The Wall of Gratitude at Sammy’s Mexican Grill

Having been inadvertently thrust onto the national election news cycle by attending the Tucson Trump Event, Betty and Jorge Rivas (the owners of Sammy’s Mexican Grill) have had to face the slings and arrows of out-of-control haters who have been attacking them personally, their business and even Betty’s hair.

But not all this national attention has not been all negative.  Betty and Jorge have been blessed with an outpouring of support from across the United States.  From Florida to California, cards and letters of support are continuing to arrive daily.  Some are Trump supporters.  Most are not, though.  They are simply offering their support for the 1st Amendment, Free Speech, and the American Dream of owning your own business.

The response from America so touched the hearts of Betty & Jorge that they took the time to set up the “Wall of Gratitude” featuring some of the cards and letters from these supporters.

Take some time, come have a great meal and enjoy the “Wall of Gratitude” at Sammy’s Mexican Grill.

    Please have someone design a T-Shirt for your restaurant to sell online. It does not have to support either Trump or Sanders – but should indicate freedom to follow your own beliefs.

    You vote for whoever you want to vote for. (I hope you vote for Trump. I will be.)

    If I make it to your area, I will bring my family to eat there.
