My neighbor has been exercising freedom of speech in front of his Grandview Blvd. home for the last year or two. For awhile it was just a small homemade "War is Stupid" sign. But then something started to happen. Smaller signs started popping up beside it with "I agree." A colorful round sign was recently added: a peace symbol someone took time to carefully construct.
As sometimes happens in areas of potential controversy, his yard started to look a little cluttered with opposing viewpoints. One sign even proclaimed "Shame on all of you! We should be supporting our troops and elected officials!"
My neighbor has, in response, sometimes added more signs or wrote on the ones there to better explain where he's coming from. It turns out he is a war veteran who lived in Europe during WWII. His first hand knowledge of war and it's aftermath leads him to believe War is Stupid... and I agree.
