They are wrong. People will not die to fight for the 2nd. People have not lost their lives for the 2nd.
They are losing their lives in the present.
Someone did die for the 2nd.
The gun enthusiast who worshiped twenty-seven english words,
constructed to form a more perfect union,
who believed that a line in the sand is so important,
even if that line is in the middle of the Death Valley,
that lives are worth preserving their freedom.
Emilio Hoffman is a name I should not know. Perhaps in a passing story on high school soccer, if at all.
Tonight his name is being recorded on cards. Placed in front of candles. And it is all that the local news has to tell me.
He died. To defend the 2nd.
