Gluten-free Monday: Memorial Day Special

I went gluten-free a few years ago.  It actually has not been as difficult to manage as I might have expected at first, as I’ve written about before.  Of course, the ease of gluten-free (as well as other dietary restrictions and preferences) in our country depends a lot on our access to information, product supply chain and respect for variation and choice imbedded in our culture.

And, of course, all of that access to information, choice and variation is secured by a lot of hard work and sacrifice from a small group of people in uniform every day.  Our first World Privileges, Fun, Idiosyncrasies and Problems all exist in a little bubble drawn from the sweat of all of us, really, its delicate skin protected by a few from those who would burst it.  (Why anyone inside or out would want to damage Our Democracy is often beyond me.  Jealousy doesn’t make sense—imitation is your game then, not destruction.)

A salute to those who guard our fragile boundaries.  We give all we have to build them, guard them well.
