Remembering My Daddy on Pearl Harbor Day

This is my dad: Bill Brown.

    Born on December 7, 1913 he enlisted in the Army on his 28th birthday to "defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic."

    A lifelong Republican I guarantee you he is rolling in his grave at what has become of his Grand Old Party and the real and present threat to the American Values he held dear.

    It is not hyperbolic to contend that the challenges to the American Dream are as dire today as they were in 1941 and the need to enlist to defend our Constitution no less urgent.

    Do what Bill did.
    Enlist somewhere.
    Make a plan. Join a movement.
    Take a stand.
    La lucha continua ("the struggle continues") -- be part of it.

    Happy Birthday, Daddy!
