7/4/13

History
forgotten
in family fun and fireworks

Sacrifice
sugarcoated
by the promise of apple pie
and a high school marching band

Freedom
taken for granted
by a generation
respecting nothing
but the self-importance of now.

  1. Wow, Letitia! Such a gift you have to condense such deep subject matter to just a few sentences that so accurately paint the picture.

    1. Thanks Andrea... please forgive the cynicism. I'm just not liking some of what I'm seeing in people these days. I actually love the holiday for all of what it symbolizes and embraces. Of course, my mini schnauzer isn't too happy with all the fireworks. ;)
