A Parade & Memoir to the Chimes of Freedom
Civil rights, Vietnam, the right of labor to organize, the Gulf Wars, a woman’s right to choose… for over fifty years I’ve marched to take a stand. While I saw my acts as patriotic, it was the opposition that wrapped itself in the flag. It should come as no surprise that I harbored a deep distrust of people making too much of a fuss over our flag.
The catalyst for this book was a Flag Day Parade in Hudson NY, my new hometown. As the parade passed, thoughts turned to vivid memories of the flag, shared national experiences and long-held beliefs. Although the sounds of bagpipes, horns and drums filled the air, the song in my head was Bob Dylan’s Chimes of Freedom. preview book – –
