31 May 2010
At the Memorial Day Parade today in Hamden, Conn., I noted fusions of:

  • patriotism and Christianity
  • kids and candy
  • young and old
  • Harley riding and hatred for bin Laden
  • militarism and love of peace
  • honor and silliness
  • tattooed arms and closely cropped hair
  • sadness and joy

Some fusions teetered toward confusion and may have passed over the line. Judgment of essential values strikes me as a daunting task, one to which we should commit our lives. Being on moral autopilot is dangerous.
