Men, women, gay, straight, white, people of color, religious, non religious, conservative, liberal, immigrants, non-immigrants, citizens, non citizens, all of these people have given their lives for our democracy. The best honor we can pay them is to preserve what they died for.

Even though I might have a problem of two with a Commander In Chief or two, as masters of war, I honor Jodeke and all who served.

I also honor all our health care workers. It might not be their day, but they need one (just in case anyone has missed my desire here).

Salute to the thousands of servers worldwide now not being allowed to serve. The severability of servers from serving during these severe times has severely standardized disservice. Stay strong...
