Memorial Day Update

Someone replied to my previous post about people who say "Happy Memorial Day"

They say "I think you can be "happy" on these days, happy that you live in a free country while still remembering why you are free, though."

That is a valid thought, and one I can agree with. You definitely can be happy about living in a free country, a country founded on the principles of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Who was this person? Some ultra-conservative, Southern, Red-Stater?

Nope.

None other than this lovely Canadienne from Saint John. More proof that this is not about Southern vs. Northern, Conservative vs. Liberal, Republican vs. Democrat. No, this is more about those who love freedom and want to remain free vs. those who wish to dominate, enslave, and be enslaved.

I, for one, and Lisa, for another, wish to remain free, and to do so, one must remember where this freedom comes from. George Orwell wrote in his "Notes on Nationalism", "Those who "abjure" violence can only do so because others are committing violence on their behalf."

For those doing "violence" on our behalf: We stand behind you, God bless you, and from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for all you do.
