But what on earth are we celebrating, or commemorating, or remembering, or whatever?
On this day when Britains are celebrating...or mourning...or remembering the
- torture and execution of traitors/Catholic freedom fighters, and/or
- the successful foiling of an assassination plot,
And remember that the winners write history.
And remember that I don't encourage assassination and think there are many better ways to work for justice.
But there are probably also better ways to commemorate the capture and death of a hurting man who felt he was fighting for religious freedom than to burn his effigy.
That being said...I'm totally going to watch fireworks tonight.
