I first met my beautiful friend
down in Key West, Florida in 1973.
Despite all the rumours
and all the stories,
some of which are
and some of which are
PURE FABRICATION ,
I would prefer to remember
RANDALL LAMAR HOWARD
as he was the afternoon I took these pics.
THE PICTURES ARE LEFT UNPAINTED
AND THE MUSIC UNSUNG
AND THE PROBLEMS UNSOLVED
SO THAT HUMANS MIGHT UNDERSTAND
THAT JOYS AND GLORIES
ARE GOD's CREATION.
Rest in Peace, my double dear Friend.
The GADSDEN Flag
nor EVER has it been
a symbol of racism !
NO - NOT EVER !
The GADSDEN FLAG was created in 1775
as a symbol against the tyranny of
Britain against our great nation.
It was the FIRST flag of our Country.
It continues to symbolize A FREE NATION,
THE RIGHT TO BARE ARMS,
AUTONOMY, THE FREEDOM OF CHOICE ,
EMPHASIZING POLITICAL FREEDOM.
LIVE FREE OR DIE
If you'd care to know more about
THE GADSDEN FLAG
RANDY HOWARD LOVED this Flag, was PROUD of his heritage
and DID know what it all stood for.
It's TRUE, he didn't ever want to offend the Public.
PLEASE be educated and NOT offended !
