Today is Memorial Day in the United States of America. This a day we honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Their lives. We all owe a debt to those who have served , and are now putting their lives in harm way in defense of the Democratic experiment that is America in the year 2016.
With the election for president which at the moment is a three-way free for all. The Donald, Hillary, and the guy that won’t go away Bernie. This is going to be a very interesting chapter in American political history. The whole world is watching with bated breath to see who will be the leader of what is left of the so-called free world. I feel proud to call myself an veteran.
let us always remember those who put their lives on the line for the safety of the public. this would include the police, and the fire departments who are on duty twenty-four seven for us all. many in the profession of public service have made the ultimate sacrifice. Winston Churchill got it right when he said in a few words: society as a whole owes a lot to the few who promise to “protect and serve”
The truth be told we are all forced to be liars about our feelings about anything we do from work,school, family obligations. The world we live in today is more complex than any other time in recorded human history. one must be careful of what is posted on social media websites. In the recent past one could recant negative gossip because it usually involved a small group of individuals. Those days are long gone. We now have the ability to put anything about anybody from our laptops or cellphones whether it is true or not is irrelevant in cyberspace.
The world of interaction of mankind has become electronic almost robot like if you think about you can send a text to another person when in the past to call someone at their home phone was a personal event. In those day’s the phones were owned by the provider of the phone service. To get a call from someone was a big deal back then. Personal calls were welcomed by those who could afford to have a phone in their homes.
Who we feel we are as individuals, and who we present to the world are two different side of a coin. There are very few people who know the real person who we claim to be in public against the person we see in the mirror. The real truth is between what is, and what we ultimately try to be for for all others to see. That is the truth to be told.
