Today marks the anniversary of the end of a dark chapter in our Nation’s history~Prohibition. <shudder>
I don’t even like to say it out loud. Imagine, criminalizing the cocktail. But it happened children. For 13 terribly sober years the thirsty citizenry suffered under the 18th amendment. Thankfully repealed by the 21st amendment in 1933, the 18th Amendment was relegated to the ash heap of history. The country could once again tip a glass without fear of arrest.
So do your patriotic duty as an imbibing American today~ have an adult beverage to celebrate a freedom we won’t allow to be taken away from us ever again.
“Sweet land of liberty………(wiping away tear)”
