My family has roots in India & Pakistan. My grandfather was a major in the British Indian army & fought the Japanese during WW2 in Burma. He returned with injuries to his face and torso from shrapnel mortar shells dropping on his regiment. He did what he thought was right and what he thought was his duty.

As much as I condemn war & violence, I understand the need to defend against those who threaten us.

I am proud of my grandfather’s sacrifice. He literally stood up for his beliefs. RIP J.I.

This account is my 1st time actively participating in social media. I had a fb account back when it started out & needed a university/college email to register. I quit that addiction after a few years when I realized how much time I was wasting. I recently had a birdsite account but only followed a few organizations like NASA, EFF, ProtonMail and news outlets as a way to stay up-to-date. I never followed individuals and I never posted anything. I'm not on ig or any other social media site. 1/5

1. Wars aren't won in a single battle.
2. It's right and good to appreciate the small wins.
3. The big win is still ahead of us!
4. We ~will~ win

The Obama administration inherited a vast economic crisis. They responded with Quantitative Easing, pumping trillions into the finance sector to rescue the banks that had knowingly gambled on bad mortgages, losing so much they were about to go under.

The Electoral College needs to go no matter what the outcome of this election, imo.

Decided to bring my tripod out to try a couple of astrophotography shots on my #Pixel5. With light clouds and a lot of light pollution I'm amazed it was able to capture these. These were also run through Snapseed (it's hdr-scape tool seems to help a lot with the light pollution). Very impressed.

I need a fresh circle of online friends here in the Fediverse. I really feel constrained with the ones on Facebook and Twitter.
