4th of July
« on: July 01, 2020, 08:08:10 PM »
In these days of attempted destruction of our history, we need to cling even more to what the United States stands for.  My generation fought a world war to keep this the land of the free and the home of the brave. We are a land of laws, not mob rule. Everyone should stand in front of the flag with pride in everything it stands for.

Happy Independence Day!!!
Live well; laugh often; love much

A few days late but Happy 4th to you, Anna!  I agree with you about mob rule.  I'm actually in favor of moving confederate statues to a museum instead of having them line Monument Avenue in Richmond.  But mobs should not be tearing down any statues. They are just destroying, not doing anything positive.  Peaceful protests are fine and that is part of what your generation fought for but there always seem to be rabble rousers that just cause trouble.
