Duty A coin flipped represents dual sides to a story, a picture or a perspective on life. Texting and driving is now two-faced - primary for teens and secondary offenses for adults. Voting is now duplicitous - ignorant low information and deluded high information voters. Education is now a Janus - the old one-room school house somehow managed to deliver the 3 R’s and inspiration to a majority of students for a score of 1. Flip the coin and today’s schools have more non-teaching staff ( librarians, bus drivers, coaches, cafeteria workers, office personnel and counselors) than teachers for a success score of 0. Freedom is now in double jeopardy - suppressed and regained, freedom is stronger than freedom never endangered ( Cicero). Military service is now an odd couple - white is the side of a Vietnam POW’s 7 years in captivity, 42 months in solitary and 72 days in leg stocks after which he returns to America to take up a new phase of his ‘productive’ life. Black is the current political agenda of PTSD overseen not by a cruel captor but my our fearless leader Obama. I would like to mint a coin with both sides etched with the “sublimest word” according to a ‘Hal” Kushner, POW and George Patton Jr. General - DUTY. DUTY to God, DUTY to country..
