The Flag Controversy

Photo by jnn1776This article was written and then discarded. It was an opinion piece about the rash of “Yankee Go Home” I am seeing in my town right now in response to the opposition of the Confederate flag.

I made some rather pointed and valid points in the discarded article.

But then I reconsidered. After the South surrendered, the two sides worked to rebuild and reunite this country.

It seems disrespectful of me to take sides when those gentlemen (and they were gentlemen) worked so hard to reunite was was divided.

After all, the slogan at Appomattox is, “where our nation reunited.”

Why divide when you can build?
