Protester and the Elderly Lady
Received this from a friend and thought some of you might get a chuckle out of it as I did.
"Here's a quote from a government employee who
witnessed a recent interaction between an elderly
woman and antiwar protester in a Metro station in DC:
There were protesters on the train platform handing
out pamphlets on the evils of America. I politely declined
to take one.
An elderly woman was behind me getting off the escalator
and a young (20ish) female protester offered her a
phamphlet, which she politely declined.
The young protester put her hand on the old woman's
shoulder as a gesture of friendship and in a very soft voice
said, "Lady, don't you care about the children of Iraq?"
The old woman looked up at her and said, "Honey, my father
died in France during World War II, I lost my husband in Korea
and a son in Vietnam. All three died so you could have the
right to stand here and bad mouth our country. If you touch me
again, I'll stick this umbrella up our a$$ and open it."
GOD BLESS AMERICA!
