I follow this guy on Twitter. Seems legit. I respect and even enjoy his perspective. This thread from yesterday, a good example:
“I truly believe that the American Revolution will not be won until the words of the Declaration apply to everyone, of all races, genders, identities. Until the promise of the Gettysburg Address is made universal: we do highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain.
I serve, because these dead will not have died in vain. Because someone will carry their memory, tell their stories, share their ideals. The dead will not have died in vain, because we will fight for equality and equity. This nation shall always experience a new birth of freedom.”
He then goes into a detailed account of the Battle at Gettysburg. You can check the thread on Twitter :
As we celebrate the 4th of July, I think about how much seems wrong in these United States these days and well, all said, at least we’re not in sustained, armed conflict just yet.
Thanks, @pptsapper ~~~
