Memorial Day 2017

Today is Memorial Day. It is, of course, a day to remember past sacrifices. It is just as important, however, to remember the present, today's. Even as we speak, our fellow Americans are fighting and dying around the world in America's longest war, the war against terrorism. But a far greater threat looms in Asia. We learned yesterday morning that a third carrier group led by the Nimitz is headed to the Korean peninsula as the world prepares for the first nuclear confrontation since the Cuban missile crisis in 1960. Something very big is coming. I wonder if we will look back at this moment and realize that this was how a nuclear war started. Was this how it felt when Archduke Ferdinand was assassinated in the Balkans in 1914 triggering a chain of seemingly uncontrollable events? These events have been debated for a century. It is hard to see the future when it is so hard to even see the past. No one knows where we are headed exactly. One thing we know for sure is that we cannot escape the future. The other certainty is that America will remain under attack both from within and from without.
