hanks and kudos to very talented artist/writer Laini Taylor over at Grow Wings
(the flag photo above will look familiar!) for her July 4th post on the president’s incomprehensible pardon of Scooter Libby and links to MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann’s full commentary
on this atrocity. As Laini puts its: “This isn’t the country we want it to be. It’s not the country it’s supposed to be.” And yet we’ll gather our families and friends close today to watch fireworks; we’ll celebrate our freedom knowing so many others suffer atrocities daily; we’ll hope and pray that as the current presidency continues to unravel a new promising order fueled by reason and respect…for citizens of all countries…has already taken root and will flourish as the next leader of our treasured democracy is elected and takes office. And we’ll resolve to pitch in to make sure that happens.
Happy Fourth of July, and Happy “Lucky 7” birthday to my dear dad, Wally DeGroot, who turns 77 on 7-7-07!!
