A Double Edge Sword

-F-18 Hornets piloted by The Blue Angels engage in aerial maneuvers at the Millville Airshow.
I went to my first airshow this Memorial Day weekend and it did not disappoint my virgin eyes. My first peak at fighter planes left me breathless. It was truly a modern marvel seeing an exhibition of their unbelievable speed, fury, and grace.

While I stared captivated by the engineering that overtook the blue skies, I reminded myself of the internal battle raging within me. Like a double edge sword, these military planes are flying killing machines as much as they are protectors of our great nation. That is when I heard an emcee's voice blare across the loudspeaker in a summation of my conflict.

"Do you know what theses planes fly on ladies and gentlemen? Money. That's right." A deafening trailblazing roar buzzed the crowd. The emcee continued, "And that is the sound of freedom."

Happy Memorial Day!
