Remove Everything for Peace and Love
Removing statues is like removing pencils so people won't write hate books. Removing flags is the same. Last year we banned the Confederate flag and bigotry is still alive and well it seems .
Symbols mean different things to different people. Symbols don't cause people to act. People choose to act !
Will we now change all the street names and our family names ?Breckinridge lane , Adolph ? No more Archie's-( remember Archie Bunker?)Should Jefferson Davis Musuem and Obelisk in Fairview ,Ky. be closed? Davis went to Transylvania and West Point. Let's close them ,too .
Should we get rid of chocolate so people won't get fat? Let's close drug stores so people can't get pain killers. Some people take offense to the big Noah's arc In Kentucky . Should we get rid of it?
Should we paint ourselves a different color to show solidarity for other races? Change our religion?
Should we not travel to Germany or Russia , Asia Or the Middle East anymore , or anywhere ? Everyone has done something mean at one time or another...
Once all the "symbols " statues, flags , words ,objects , names and places are removed in America will we now have unity , peace and love?
The answer is absolutely NOT!!Quite the opposite is true . Tolerance and respect for others is the answer . If you don't like something -look the other way,don't go there, or just don't do it yourself!
