Earlier this month hundreds of students from Texas A&M gathered to take a stand against hate and anti-war protesters. Together, in true Aggie spirit, they formed a human wall (a maroon wall, to be exact) around the funeral service of a soldier to protect his family from a planned protest by Westboro Baptist Church members, a group that regularly stages protests around the country.
The family of Lt. Col. Tisdale made an addition to his oituary post-service:
As of the afternoon of July 5, 2012, it can be added that Lt. Col. Roy Lin Tisdale, Texas Aggie Class of ’92, is survived by the Maroon Wall, a tribute symbolic of the love, respect and honor of former students for their fellow Aggie. No better example can be found of just what it means to be part of the Texas Aggie family. The most powerful statement of all against hate was made, in complete, reverent silence.
I’m sure the explanation for these adorable tea sachet shortbread cookies sounds much lovelier in French as the creative mastermind behind this clever recipe intended, so I won’t even try. However, I just had to share this find from Le Pétrin, a food blog I love browsing through although I don’t understand a word.
I’m sure this recipe could be replicated by combining a simple shortbread recipe with a little time and patience, however if anyone can interpret the exact recipe, please let me know!
