The following is an editorial.

Today is Memorial Day here in the United States of America.

I have said it before and it bears repeating.
This holiday signifies A LOT more than the end of a three day weekend or the unofficial start of summer.
Brave men and women have fought for and defended—some at the expense of their own lives—this country against threats foreign and domestic (like the January 6 Insurrection in Washington, DC) so that everyone here can enjoy (or take for granted) the freedoms guaranteed in the Constitution.

To have the right to your opinions, among other things, is part of the First Amendment.
Regardless of your political beliefs America was, IS, and can still be a great country.
But the social, economic, racial and other divisions that some try to enforce will tear us apart if we let them.

This land is based upon a lot more than the hatred and bigotry that rule the dark hearts of some.
Just ask a Veteran why and what they fought for.
It certainly wasn't for chaos like the Nation's Capital experienced January 6.

The above was an editorial.
