It is 3:01 AM on Monday, January 4th 2021. This is the day that many people dread as this is the first work day after the holidays have officially ended. It is a bit different this time due to 2020 being such a terrible year; I think many are glad to have it gone even…… Continue reading Journal Entry – 1.4.21
I’ve been watching a lot of Vietnam war movies lately. Our current American culture has reverted to glorifying war and it makes no sense. Iraq was invaded by the USA on a lie.
