"We will never forget" ..
Yet how quickly even those words have been replaced by the
cowardly rhetoric of a society bereft of decency and moral fibre.
While men and women of honor and valor put their lives at risk
for the sake of millions of strangers, a world consumed by
political correctness tries to sidestep its responsibilities,
having failed yet again to heed history. Mesmerized by its own
narcissism, the mindless mob preaches passivity in the face
of evil, seeking the path of least resistance over action,
principles, and integrity.
There is something terribly wrong with a civilization which berates,
belittles, and condemns those who choose to defend the helpless
and innocent against evil, brutality, and tyranny.
