Liberty and democracy become unholy when their hands are dyed red with innocent blood. ~Gandhi, Non-violence in Peace and War, 1948
Several years ago while visiting Fort Stevens, Astoria, Oregon – we stumbled upon a mini civil war reenactment. The big reenactment weekend is in September and you’re lucky if you can find a place to stay that weekend. It was interesting and the boys loved it, but the whole war thing just leaves me shaking my head. At the front of the gift store there is a memorial rose garden; replenished my spirit after all that war talk.
