My Thoughts On The Confederate Flag

This is a touchy subject, but I’ll try to explain my feelings in an open and honest way.

In general, what my generation does not recognize is that the meaning of the Confederate flag has changed over the years.

The Flag once was a symbol of Southern values and pride. It has since been high jacked, and for several years now, younger people have known it only as a symbol of racism and hate.

We can’t fight this losing battle of words, so let's concede with dignity.

We old timers can still be respectful of the past,

But we have to accept the reality of the present, so

Just REMOVE the flag, and move on!
