Liberty Remembered 6/6/2022

This morning I published the first mage below on a number of Facebook groups that I belong to and it it got me to thinking. The news media today is focused on the attempted overthrow of the United States Government that took place last year. I don’t usually post political ideas on this blog and will not make this a normal practice. However, this is a day that will live in infamy in the same way Pearl Harbor and 9/11 do.

The day before 9/11/2001, New York City looked like this but on that day more than the skyline was changed forever. Last year the US Capitol was attacked for the first time since the war of 1812. This day has to be remembered in the same way as 9/11 is. In some ways it is even a more significant event. The people that attacked the Capitol were Americans. Deluded in their beliefs in the same way the traitors who seceded from the United States were in 1861. We can never forget 1/6/2021 and have to bond together to thwart the mob and stop extremism and every tear remember the insurrection as long as hate and extremism exist in our country .

To me it seemed like everything in The US Capitol was special and had some unique thought behind it. Everywhere there is art. Even the tunnels leading from the office buildings to the Capitol have art from high school seniors across America. There are huge painting and many sculptures. Even some of the doors are artistic displays like this one outside the Speaker’s Balcony.

I can think of many political things to say today but in the spirit of this blog I will say none. Instead here is a lovely picture of a symbol of freedom. That’s it. Carry on.
