Memorial Day 2017

Chimpy reviews his portfolio,


I know I posted something on Friday, but I want to highlight this holiday again.

You see, in my book, Memorial Day is serious – and it is a moment to reflect on the evils of war. The best thing we can do to honor those who have fallen is to work as hard as we can that no more will fall. I think it is safe to say, that is what our war dead would want.

The cliché is War is Hell, and Pat Benetar says that Hell is for Children, it does follow that War is Hell for Children. (And I add: but not for the children of the connected and the powerful.)

I think that all children deserve better.
