Many, if not most, Americans were incensed by President Barack Obama's hat in hand apology to Afghan President Hamid Karzai for the burning of Korans on a U.S. air base in Afghanistan. Most disturbing was President Obama's promise of retribution against our own troops by, “... holding accountable those responsible.” With that, President Obama threw our military personnel under the proverbial Afghani donkey cart, even as rioting crowds murdered them in cold blood.
One patriot, angry with this betrayal, took a few minutes out of her busy day to express her thoughts, then post the video with her version of a proper apology to President Karzi on YouTube and her blog (transcript included). The video went viral within hours and, before a week passed, had nearly reached the holy grail for Internet videos – One Million views.
Kira Ayn Davis, the self-described “actress, writer, blogger and talker... also a mother, wife, proud American and black conservative... ” seemed awestruck by an overwhelmingly positive response from hundreds of thousands of fellow Americans who shared her sentiments. As Davis posted on her facebook page:
“Woohoo! Video just crossed 900,000! How should I celebrate 1,000,000?”I remembered the story of Revolutionary War heroine, Mary Hagidorn, who refused an order for women and children to shelter in a cellar during an expected British attack. Mary defiantly replied, ”I shall not go to that cellar should the enemy come. I will take a spear which I can use as well as any man and help defend the fort.” With spear in hand, Mary took her place along the defensive line, holding her position until the battle was won.
So, to Kira, I humbly offer this counsel: Hold your children close, tell them the story of Mary Hagidorn, and whisper, “This I do for you, not with pike, but with pen.”
