WWII Monument in North Carolina Vandalized with Praise for Communism

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “A World War II monument in Charlotte, North Carolina, was targeted by vandals who spray-painted a hammer and sickle over the names of soldiers who died while fighting overseas,” Maddison Dibble writes in the Washington Examiner.
 
“Wayne White, a U.S. Air Force veteran, gathered a group of volunteers and began scrubbing the monument clean on Monday morning. He told Fox 46 that he was upset by the vandalism because it covered up the 507 names of people from Mecklenburg County who were ‘veterans and deserve the honor, respect, and dignity.’”

Dodging the Roadkill: Weathering the Winter

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – The winter months have always been my least favorite time of the year.  Obviously when I was a kid, I loved the snow and all that came with it, but as an adult, a biker, and a man who has a few “achy” bones, winter is NOT fun for me.

One of the greatest things about this blog and all of you who follow, is that I get to learn so much about you and the part of the country that you live in.  I’ve never been so blessed by anything in my life as I have with this motorcycle and the people and places it brings me.
