Last week being an electoral Tuesday, with its months of preparation, brings to mind how this great nation operates. I am passionate for our country, the foresight our founders used, and our amazing document, The Constitution. Sometimes it brings about situations for which I don’t care, but that’s okay as it was written for the greater good. To be more specific, the part I’m not crazy about; however, still stand by, is the first amendment’s partial protection, allowing lawyers to advertise according to the Supreme Court. I believe this verdict was handed down in 1977, and though I don’t recall what it was like then, today I rate the ambulance chasing lawyers and politicians the two things in this life I would never want to become.
There are exceptions to every rule even if those rules are constructed through a personal opinion. There are politicians I believe who are honest and care about their constituents; just as there are lawyers for whom I have the highest respect (even though I believe charging by the minute is a bit gratuitous for any profession).
There is no doubt that we reside in the greatest nation on this blue globe. God bless the USA!
On the last Monday of each May, we celebrate Memorial Day. We take this day to honor those who have served in our armed forces and given their lives in the defense of this country. I personally salute and give a heartfelt “Thank You” to those who have given their all, so that I may live with the freedoms I enjoy today. This holiday has been observed since the end of the Civil War when it was called Decorations Day. God Bless those who have taken up the cause of freedom for this great nation and their families who have offered a great sacrifice for our home, the United States of America!
