V is for Victory

“Remember, remember the 5th of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot.
I can think of no reason
Why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.”

Today is Guy Fawkes day, a holiday in Britian which remembers a man who died trying destroy a government which repressed his religion. It mocks him for his failure and praises God for it. I prefer to think of it instead as a day to remember a man and his compatriots who believed in and desired their freedom so much that they were willing to die for.
I skip ahead to “V for Vendetta,” where the world has gone so wrong that the effigy of Guy Fawkes is taken up again in order to fight a corrupt government and liberate society from a secular and discriminatory power. I can’t help but think that Obama’s victory last night was a decisive step away from a future that would need an extremist hero like V.
God Bless Obama, and may the hopes you’ve inspired in us lead this country back to the nature that made it great.

About Morgan Maria D'Isidoro

Morgan Maria D'Isidoro has lived in Baltimore, MD for most of her life, saving a handful of failed escape attempts. Given the murder rates, she'll probably die here too. Morgan is a writer of speculative fiction and poetry, a musician of dubious quality, cat aficionado, art history fangirl, kitchen sorceress, recovering pyromaniac, accomplished liar, and an all around person of questionable employability.
