Gratitude Today: The Peacemakers

All that marching and yelling led to an end to the Vietnam War.

Today is Memorial Day, traditionally a time to remember soldiers who died during war. I prefer to celebrate those who spent their efforts averting war, protesting the stupidity of government and the greed of the oligarchs, who work together to give us wars we don’t want or need.

Those standing on the picket line, fighting Congress, or protesting in other ways have my deep respect, regard and appreciation. May their tribe grow.
