During this April vacation I visited Washington D.C. I was truly amazed, and horrified at the fights and deaths our Country has gone through! I saw pictures of those who had to starve, work, be beaten, and shot for really no reason at all. I say the flag that was referred to in the star spangled banner, torn, riped, but still showing our colors! I was reminded to never forget. Never forget the past, no matter how hard it is to remember. If you sign this pledge you age making a pact never to force those hard thoughts out of your mind, because then we can be sure that we never have to relive them! By remembering you are honoring those who fought for us, for you. I will sign with the hope of many more to follow. Please remember.
