Erasing symbols, doesn’t erase heritage
“That which does not kill us makes us stronger.” – Friedrich Nietzsche
One needs history. It’s lesson is a constant reminder of how to avoid tragedy while making decisions in the present and future. Those thinking that by removing a flag at a cemetery or removing historical monuments is a good idea, is misjudging people who understand the true reality of history. Certainly by attempting to eradicate all Confederate flags and Confederate memorials, is one example and it sheds light on those who would do so as being in the same league with those radical Islamic fundamentalists that are destroying historical, cultural and religious artifacts. …and for about the same thoughtless reasons. But, maybe that’s their point. “Out of sight, out of mind.”
