This is great...But it came a bit late. Had it been encluded in the original constitution, thousand of lives would have been saved and the hate that was borne by it omission might have been less intense. That is to say, it is almost unreal when one considers the founding fathers establishing a nation called a democracy and permitting slavery to exist. If one wonders why some people do not celebrate the 4th of july, think about this subject for awhile. This is one of the subjects that was not, unfortunately, taught in any detail in the u.S. Educational system.

About Me

My photo
My dad's dad, my grandfather, was nine years old when President Lincoln died from an assassin's bullet. Most people think I am speaking of my GREAT GRANDFATHER. NO, I am referring to my dad's father, my paternal Grandfather, Robert Levi Huffstutter, born in 1856. What does this information have to do with my profile? It might help the reader understand that I have a sense of being much older than I am in that only one generation seperates me from President Lincoln. This causes me to respond differently to society and many current events. In many respects, this is to my benefit, in other respects it dates my mindset. Perhaps this is the reason I value the moral standards and idealogies of older Americans, the men who were the soldiers and sailors I saw when I was a small boy,the men and women who fought a war for freedom without any doubts posted by a media with a questionable lack of national unity and purpose.
