Poignant words from ISJ Blogger Pat Andrews.....
We Mutually Pledge Our Sacred Honor
“Let’s shake on it” and “I give you my word” and “I have your back” are statements of honor that have always been held dear by Americans and are embodied in the closing words of our Declaration of Independence.
To give one’s word and to shake on it is a most solemn pledge that is not to be broken. To betray a comrade on the battlefield has always been anathema to an American, the worst form of dishonor.
Every one of these covenants was broken following a feckless phone call made by our President and America's dignity has been forever stained. The consequences shall be long-lasting. The shame will be forever.
