land of the free and home of the brave?

 No, no, I am not questioning our nation's bravery or it's freedom or even it's greatness.  I even think it's great to hold our heads high on a day like today.  Celebrate!  Yet let us not forget the many that have died before this journey began.  Died fighting to get to this day.  And those still fighting and risking their lives for this hopeless never ending cause.  I know I shouldn't dwell, but someone has to.  The celebrating could be a tad on the excessive side.  Burning couches on the street,  riot like crowds in our nation's capital.  Even restaurants are naming drinks after he who shall not be named's death.  Yes he is inhuman, and no I would in no way defend him.  Sure let him burn. But please let's move passed this quickly.  Let us forget this monster and remember the one's we love and lost.  Let us honor them with our patriotism and our integrity.  Let us celebrate the life of our country and our loved ones, instead of celebrating death.  We live in the greatest country in the world.  Let's show the rest of the world why.
