DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE: NEVER FORGET

((c) Monte Wolverton)

Tried all day to write something for the Fourth. Just couldn’t. Started several little stories full of parades, beer, and fireworks. Every one seemed too frothy. Started an essay about freedom in a country that jails BABIES because they had the bad fortune to have parents fleeing violence and poverty, looking for a better life for those babies. I couldn’t focus my thoughts today. On this Independence Day I was too overwhelmed at the all-encompassing assault on the democracy we have fought so hard for over the past 240-odd years. An assault led by our commander-in-chief, our Congress, and their financial backers. Other people have better expressed my thoughts today.

Peace out.
