Thu Dec 7, 2017, 01:32 PM

Today I went to my Father's grave and planted a American flag.

He was WW2 vet and today is December 7th.

It is a cold, wet nasty day outside.

My Father' s grave is surrounded by other WW2 vets graves.

I planted flags for all of them.

What did they fight for.

My Mother worked in a shipyard making Liberty ships.

That is how she met my Father.

I am sitting at home now in front of a wood burning stove thinking about today.

I am angry and pissed off right now.

But this is today.

We cannot give up and surrender, our parents and grandparents didn't.

The WW2 Americans fought for us, many of us yet to be born.

We are in fight just like they were.

Now we have a Pearl Harbor, I feel that way.

It is not over for this country, only if we let it.

It is now our time to save the country.

My Mother told me the shipyard workers had to work a lot of overtime. The Liberty ships had to be built for the war.

She would get home tired and sleep a little and go back to work.

I am looking at my parents wedding picture. My father in his navy uniform and my mother all dressed up. A good looking young couple looking to a future. The war was over by this time.

I was not even thought of yet.

So today I am pissed off and angry a good democrat was let down by his party.

Tomorrow is another day to fight.

This young couple in this wedding picture cannot be let down.

They did what they had to do.

Now I am going to make a pot of stew and watch Wonder Woman.

This is not the end of our country.
