The Rogue Speaks:
"Mom, what's a legacy?"
"A legacy is something handed down to you. What made you ask?"
"Mr. Carnes talked about the legacy of heroes today. Dad was a hero.
"Yes, he gave his life for America."
"Why are people in America fighting with each other? They say bad things, and some are so greedy! They don't want the poor to live better lives.
“Did Mr. Carnes say that?”
"No. I saw it on t.v. That’s not the legacy Dad left ."
"Your dad was a very brave man, son, and he believed in equality for everyone.”
“I do, too, Mom!”
This concludes my Saturday Centus. I would like for you to know, however, that my son Jeff served with the Multi-national Peacekeeping Force in Egypt in the mid to late 80's, and my son-in-law, David, was called up to serve in Iraq, even though he was 45 years old! He returned with post-traumatic stress disorder and will be on many medications for years.
I hope you realize that war is a big business, and we all know just how much a certain political party loves big business.
