Where Does the End Come

I just posted when I saw this on my feed:

DURHAM, North Carolina (WTVD) —
Protesters in Durham rushed and toppled a Confederate statue outside the courthouse on Monday evening.

The monument of a Confederate soldier holding a rifle was erected in 1924 and inscribed on it are the words “in memory of the boys who wore the gray.”

Nobody wants this to end.

  1. I’ve been very careful what I say about this since my view is unpopular. But I am very uncomfortable with removing all confederate statues, symbols or remembrances. Better to augment them, perhaps, keep them and alongside have something to recognize that slavery was evil. But Robert E. Lee was honorable given the understandings of his culture and time.. I don’t want to judge everyone in history by 21st Century standards. I was in Charlottesville three weeks ago to visit Monticello. They talked openly of him owning slaves and his relationship with Sally Hemsley (I think that was her name). Better to be complete than trying to remove traces of history.

  2. Many cities are moving these statues to Confederate cemeteries. A better choice than destruction of these statues / monuments that many find so offensive.
