I have to be honest with you, I love America, but I'm neither a patriot or a pacifist, just something in between. Superbly framed photos,  Old Glory in each of them waving her majestic colors. Do you have others?

stop by mine, if you get the time.......ciao4now...

I am both a patriot and a pacifist. Loving your country and hating war are not diametrically opposed.  My favorite sensei, Walter Oka, stood in his front yard as a child and watched Pearl Harbor bombed. His family was sent to an internment camp, but like many Japanese Americans he and all seven of his brothers served...This must be a very moving memorial...
