Doubtless all who plan to detonate explosives this week have already made your purchases. I’m writing this at 10 p.m. Sunday, and already the bombing has begun. It’s terrorism, and it has nothing to do with patriotism or the Fourth of July.
I realize I am likely stopping no one, but with every explosion, a child awakes in fear, a pet runs away and a veteran is reminded of the hell of war, the loss of a limb and/or friend and the random horror that is an IED.
When you light that fuse and detonate that bomb, you are doing the least patriotic thing this proud American and son of a soldier can imagine. A safe and sane Fourth to all.
