To Stand as an American

Congressman Jeff Van Drew, is either King Leonidas or Benedict Arnold. The identity history will assign to him will hinge on who prevails in the  impeachment Carnival  of President Donald Trump.  The winners write the history. The losers, of course, just sue for reparations. It takes courage to stand your ground when those around you, the spineless ones, are  falling in line behind popular opinion. When my children worry about the consequences that follow their beliefs I don’t soften the blow of truth. I just tell them it is harder to be good, and that the road less travelled is often rough, and  the desire to take an easier way compelling. As an individual from the right side of the isle I offer a tip of the hat to Mr. Drew. When I see him suffering the slings and arrows of mass opinion as he stands his ground against his own party I know we have one good thing in common, one vital element that binds us. We are both American.
