The throes of this democratic republic send us reeling left and right, dazed from the endless barrage of opinion and wondering how far will we drift from our constitutional moorings.
Flag Day reminds us of those beginnings and long journey to the 21st century. It should force us to learn that history. It should force us to learn from that history.
We are encouraged that the political wars continue, free speech survives, and a spirit of right vs. wrong prevails.
May God have mercy on a self-centered, myopic, and immoral United States of America.
