The Sunday paper Rants & Raves section had two comments from those objecting to the removal of confederate statues honoring leaders of the confederate movement. My first reply to those who feel that is an attempt to alter history. The point is we should not be CELEBRATING a horrific period in the history of our country. Museums are the place for historic remembrance, a place where there is room to also display information on the terrible wrongs done to many Americans during this time. These statues glorify only the wrong side.
Secondly, I believe that people who are free to express their views in this paper should also be courageous enough to sign their name, I would like to see the writers’ names included in the Rant and Rave section. If you have the temerity to equate Martin Luther King Jr’s fight for equality for all, to the civil war generals fighting for slavery then at least be courageous enough to sign your name.
