Re: MilitaryMark Photo Critic
Jeesh Mark, what do you want? Yes, the Pope may be dying, and that is rightly a relevant topic for a blog. Yes, I pray for him every day. Yes, he is a great man. Yes, he is the leader of the Church. Yes, he deserves a picture all his own.
But, once again, this particular picture tries to honor the fact that this great man, beyond his historic work as leader of the Catholic Church, played a major role in the defeat of Communism in the 20th century.
But he didn't do it alone. His two contemporary allies were -- you guessed it -- Lady Thatcher and President Reagan. (You'd probably have a better case if the picture included John Major and George H.W. Bush, but it doesn't.)
The Communists murdered over 100,000,000 people in the 20th century. In no small part due to the complementary efforts of these three leaders, the Wall was brought down. And millions of people are today free.
At this point, I don't think it's inappropriate to remember and honor that.
