Independence Day


For lack of anything better to say on this Fourth of July, I'm reminded of my attempt at an absurdist account of last year's celebrations in Praha.

Unfortunately, I can't help but thinking the quote from Elie Wiesel's I chose last year is perhaps an even more important sentiment now.
None of us is in a position to eliminate war, but it is our obligation to denounce it and expose it in all its hideousness. War leaves no victors, only victims. . . . Mankind must remember that peace is not God's gift to his creatures, it is our gift to each other.—Elie Wiesel
