Don't Mess With Texas??

They say everything is BIG in TEXAS. Everything that is except for the Okinawan "Kenjinkai" association. And this particular group was from Dallas. the "Big D" of all places! Still it was nice to see them here in this picture and that they were "Big" enough about it to show up. They were just one of many Kenjinkai groups that were big enough to show up for the Worldwide Uchinanchu Festival held in Naha, Okinawa from October 12th through the 16th.
Funny thing about it in my mind was that from all of the groups in America that came to celebrate their heritage here in Okinawa, one of the smallest states, Hawaii, had the biggest group and the Biggest state, in their own minds, Texas had one of the smallest if not "The" smallest delegation. I can't say for certain but I even think that the delegation from Sweden was bigger than this group. Don't mess with Texas??? Ha!
