A Very Special Date

***** WARNING!!! *****

This dangerously illegal and immoral subversive underground resistance message is being surreptitiously monitored by the Beaming Internet Government Broadband Radio Oscillation Telecommunications Hearing Electronic Reconnaissance (i.e., B.I.G. B.R.O.T.H.E.R.) as part of a coordinated official clandestine domestic surveillance investigation, in cooperation with the National Administration of Zealous Interrogation (i.e., N.A.Z.I.) and the Commission On Message Monitoring Investigative Electronics (i.e., C.O.M.M.I.E.).

Serious felony criminal charges are pending, with extreme penalties yet to be determined!


Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

Tomorrow is Sunday 19 April 2009.

It was on this date, in 1775, two hundred and thirty-four years ago, that seventy-seven men and boys stood on the green at Lexington and dared to confront the most powerful army in the entire World.

The local militia were responding because they had been warned that the regular army was there to seize their firearms and ammunition.

To this day, no one knows who fired "the shot heard 'round the World", but thus began the American Revolutionary War.

The Nineteenth of April really should be observed and celebrated as a patriotic national holiday.

I wonder why it isn't?

Maybe we should organize a nationwide grassroots effort to have the Nineteenth of April officially designated a national holiday.

Since tomorrow is also Sunday, it would be (in my opinion) sacrilegious to have a parade, fireworks, or any sort of boisterous party.

But, it is appropriate for military veterans to wear their medals on their civilian suits, and for Boy Scouts to wear their uniforms.

When people ask why the old men are wearing medals on their suits, then the veterans can explain about the significance of the Nineteenth of April.

Certainly, discussion of 19 April 1775 would be an appropriate topic in any church service.

Families could get together after church for picnics and singing.

Appropriate films for family viewing would be, APRIL MORNING, starring Tommy Lee Jones, or the classic Walt Disney movie, JOHNNY TREMAIN.

A fine book to read would be THE MAKING OF AMERICA, by Dr. W. Cleon Skousen.

Do you have any other ideas for appropriately observing tomorrow's historic date?

Thank you.
