DAY 80

 

 

    Gettysburg National Military Park Gettysburg, Pennsylvania  4 - 6, Wednesday afternoon, October 31, 2016 The Last 100 Days of the Presidency of Barack Obama The Gettysburg College Cross Country teams use the hilly battlegrounds for practice. As I walk by this exhausted but still "bubbly"  group I hear one of the women dis some a woman from an opposing team, "She's from the south and she was spouting all this sexist crap." Terrific young, vibrant bodies, I sense, their memories are still cradled by the persistent resonance of the Civil War, the one that forever continues. No different in age from the slaughtered youth of the 1860's, over dead bones, north and south, they practice  their runs, cheering each other on, "Keep your head down Luke!". To think that barely in the country's wings, these days in full view the KKK and Donald Trump are ready to re-shine their own armor, with the vengeful desire to kill and win for whatever racist views they spout. Yet today such a beautiful landscape here, the leaves changing color, rich crimsons and yellow, this landscape of so many already dead.
