We will never forget

Today is December 7th, the anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor: the event which drew us into World War II. Display your flags today to honor the thousands of servicemembers and civilians that died that infamous Sunday morning. Patriotism is a noble virtue that should be taught to our families, but patriotism doesn't mean blindly accepting whatever happens... Chesterton's quote is true:

"My country, right or wrong" is a thing no patriot would ever think of saying except in a desperate case. It is like saying "My mother, drunk or sober."
