Remember the Alamo!

remember the alamo

Hey, I don’t like republicans just as much as the next guy but I wouldn’t go so far as to say “FORGET THE ALAMO”. The battle of the Alamo was a great part of the history of the United States of America. It really defines what fighting for freedom is. Who could forget the great line in the sand drawn from William Travis’s sword giving the men an opportunity to leave or to stay and die.  The Alamo did not fall alone that day many brave man fell right alongside with her, William Travis, James Bowie and the great David Crockett just to name a few. So when I see something like this cartoon it gets under my skin , in Arabic we have this saying (ناكر المعروف)(niker il maroof) which literally means denying a known act, this cartoon even though it has nothing to do with the Alamo still disappoints me. So I say REMEMBER THE ALAMO!!! REMEMBER GOLIAD!!! Because if we start to make jokes about our history then we are not worth remembering.
