Many Americans view Google with a fair degree of cynicism: one more cyber-giant run by those techie-artsy types on the Left coast.

Google found itself the recipient of no small amount of scorn after choosing to celebrate Easter with a Cesar Chavez birthday tribute. No matter that Easter is the "Superbowl"of  holidays for Christians the world over.
Google could have chosen an innocuous Easter graphic: baskets of jelly beans, a line of bright yellow  Peeps, kids hunting Easter eggs.


Google Bumps Easter Images For One Of Cesar Chavez

But instead, the search engine dynamo opted to post a portrait in honor of late labor organizer, Cesar Chavez, perhaps due to the close ties between Google CEO Eric Schmidt and President Obama. The President released a statement early in the day declaring:
“I call upon all Americans to observe this day with appropriate service, community, and educational programs to honor Cesar Chavez’s enduring legacy.”
But this week Google chose the "2013 U.S. Doodle 4 Google" national winner that should warm the heart of every patriot,  12th-grader Sabrina Brady of Sparta, Wisconsin. Google received 130,000 submissions and millions of votes; but it was the simple and touching high schooler's doodle, "Coming Home," that captured the hearts of voters.

Sabrina's doodle displays a young girl running with an American flag to the open arms of her dad, a soldier returning from duty.


Someone at Google should be applauded--or perhaps the votes should receive the kudos. Google has garnered loads of goodwill as we approach Memorial Day, a day set aside since 1868 to honor our fallen servicemen and women.

The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.
