For Veterans Day, Frances Coleman shared some memories of her father, who fought in World War II (as did my own father).
She mused about what he fought for–and about what he didn’t fight for.
More than 400,000 American soldiers didn’t die in World War II so that today, we could spuriously accuse one another of stealing elections. They did not die so that manipulative candidates could maliciously pit voters against one another. Nor did they die so that we could try to limit, rather than expand, people’s access to the ballot box.
Especially, they didn’t die so that this country’s worst enemy could become its own people.
