Open Letter to George Washington
Mr President. General Washington sir. Thank you for your courage. Thank you, and your esteemed collegues, for your service, your sacrifice, and your wisdom. I am sorry to report that we have failed you. We have failed each other. We have proven ourselves wholly unworthy of your sacrifice and your vision. We have taken the greatest gift, with the exception of the Lord Jesus Christ, ever given to mankind and squandered it. Shamefully. Our collective greed, apathy, and cowardice has assured our gradual decline into mediocrity. For what little it is worth, we extend to you sir our deepest apologies.

Apologies to my Dad and the greatest generation.
After all you faced in WWII to save us from those who would enslave us we don't even recognize the enemy anymore. You were right Dad. The USA will be destroyed from within by those willing to sacrifice freedom to live on the dole.

We will be telling a story to our children and grand children that will begin, Once up a time there was a republic made up of those who valued freedom as a gift. The gift had a requirement that it be handled responsibly. But, ...
Fire for Effect we are remiss in not apologizing to Ben Franklin. Sorry, we couldn't keep the republic because we became so dumb and lazy we no longer valued it so we frittered it away.

lil oh me. I have neither grandchildren nor children. Frankly, I would be ashamed to have to sail into the sunset while they, through no fault of their own, were left to endure America (and therefore the world) in a steep decline.
