Palin Makes Fundraising Speech In Missoula

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin talked about faith and personal responsibility during a weekend fundraising speech in Missoula.

Palin spoke Sunday to a crowd of about 1,600 that paid $100 each to support the faith-based nonprofit Teen Challenge Montana, a residential center that helps young mothers with addictions to alcohol or drugs.

She described the center as an example of God's work in action, calling it "part church, part school and part hard work." The center does not rely on taxpayer money.

The former vice presidential candidate told members of the crowd that each person must take responsibility for themselves and find their purpose. Outside, about 30 people protested Palin's visit.
