Gerald Ford

like so many people that were politically active in the 60' and 70's, emotions were raw and bleeding. i really wanted Nixon to do hard time. Spiro was making known the term" nolo contend re" as we so called revolutionaries licked our chops as well as our wounds. i turned 18 in 1972 and voted. we thought getting Nixon would finish our quest. when Ford pardoned him a shiver of fear went up my spine. were we going to have to retreat? thru the lens of time i join all those that applaud his courage under unbelievable fire...
