This morning's snow gave us pause on this #VeteransDay. This photo of the @TheWWImuseum
from last year's #Armistice100 hangs in our entry way. So, Happy Veterans Day from all of us, who several are veterans. We are honored to serve the community we love. #KC #ArmisticeDay
Instead of saying to yourself, “I must be creative,” or “This has to happen now,” it’s better to tell yourself something like, “I’m going to see what happens,” “I’m going to explore this possibility,” or “I’m going to play around with some ideas.”
I got to spend a few days at the end of October in Sioux County, Iowa, where 81 percent of voters chose Trump over Clinton in 2016, and yet many people in the area would breathe a sigh of relief if the president were impeached.
A powerful scene from the documentary We Stand Alone Together (2001), E Company 506th PIR veterans Guarnere and Heffron returned to the woods at Foy and Bastogne where they fought in late 1944 and early 1945.
Heffron passed away in 2013, Guarnere in 2014. #VeteransDay #WW2
#RemembranceDay2019 Pop had three brothers in the #RCAF during WW2: Vic a #Lancaster mechanic, John a gunner, and Nick, who flew in both the pacific and European theaters, #P40s in Alaska and #Typhoons in England, before being KIS just before DDay #remeberance #aviation
The "reflexive" hostility to nationalism "is ill-informed and an attempt to deem nationalism a swearword and end all discussion on that basis," @RichLowry writes.
So far, Lowry’s effort seems to be to define away all the stuff that makes nationalism so nasty, and then rechristen what’s left as nationalism to stay jake with the rubes and their vanguard, who know exactly what they mean by “nationalism” when they use it. /1
