Happy Bunker (Bunkah) Hill Day

I wanted to take this opportunity to wish all my American readers - and especially the Bostonians and ex-Bostonians - a Happy Bunker Hill Day (or Bunkah Hill as many of the natives would say). For those who know nothing of the Battle of Bunker Hill, here's a start. The picture below is the Bunker Hill Monument as it looks today.

Freedom carries with it a heavy price. The American colonists were willing to pay it because being British subject was no longer a privilege; it was an oppressive burden. It all started at Bunker Hill and as they say, the rest was history.

Ha! I'm amazed anyone outside of Boston knows about Bunker Hill Day - and someone from Israel no less! Thanks for thinking of us. We thank the British for the day off of work....
