Thank You, Mr. Secretary, Senator, and in a better world Mr. President, too

I will never forget what the GOP did to this man. Never. 

Kerry stared hard at the man in the white ball cap standing before him, the river’s water reflecting off his sunglasses as he peppered Tam with questions and eagerly gobbled up details about a defining incident in his life. Tam told Kerry the Viet Cong could hear the Swift boats coming from 3,000 feet away, and he gently suggested the lumbering Americans never stood a chance.

“We were guerrillas,” he said. “We were never where you were shooting.”

“I’m glad we’re both alive,” Kerry told him as they shook hands, each putting two hands into the gesture.

I think I am sicker about Tillerson standing where Kerry stood than Trump occupying Obama’s office. Kerry was my president. And still is.

  1. I found out today that Gerald Ford and his SecState Henry Kissinger covered up leaving Marines behind in the Mayaguez incident.
    I will never forgive what the GOP has done, and is still doing, to my country.
