Mr. Carpenter, your leftie magazine article seems to suggest Americans should be pressured or forced to observe the holiday in a specific, mandated manner. This is exactly what our veterans have been fighting to protect us from. We each as individuals choose how to celebrate/observe our holidays. Yeah, it isn't the European way, it's the American way.
Very nicely said. You do good work!
When I shot this image my intention was not to honor war, but to honor the veterans of war as well as peace. To honor anyone who ever put on a uniform and sacrificed their time, family, and sometimes their lives. The fact that we can all look at this image and express our varied opinions of it is proof that the sacrifices of our veterans were not in vain.
Mr. Carpenter, the way we do it here in the USA works just fine for us.
