Too often our memory of the past is selective. Many people want to forget America’s history of racial injustice, but when it comes to Memorial Day they want to “never forget.”
I wrote a book about many incredible, yet forgotten, American heroes we can remember on Memorial Day. It’s called: Off the RACE Track” and is available at https://amzn.to/2EARyCp
Why are whites who fought against America honored as heroes, but Native Americans who did & slaves who rebelled, aren’t? On Memorial Day shouldn’t we also remember America’s forgotten fallen who fought for freedom inside the USA.
Memorial Day makes me sad because it reminds me of the massive and intentional destruction of life that warfare has caused.
Freedom to do what we want can enslave us to desire. Freedom to do what’s right liberates us from desire’s domination.
What makes America great? The idea that all people “are created equal . . . with inalienable rights.” O for universal acceptance of basic human rights.
