“What will Change???” My thoughts on what is happening in my country.

row upon row infrared

So easy it seems for man to destroy things…..when I look at Civil War monuments and memorials, I don’t think of slavery, I don’t think of racism…….I think of all those lives lost……all those who still lie unrecognized in the ground, or pieces of them still in the ground….when you desecrate one of those monuments, you desecrate the life of each one of them…..making it worth nothing…….
So disappointed to see this happening in my country…….and for what purpose……they will be destroyed and gone……and what will change in my country……
People will be the same…….easy to destroy, easy to fight, easy to hate……losing every single monument won’t change that………
I was around during the Vietnam War protests…….People in the streets, on campuses, wanted peace…….When these soldiers returned, they treated them in a way that left so many of them unwanted and shunned by society.   You can hate a war, but you should respect those who served, those who came home, and those who didn’t.
Should we tear down the Wall now because so many of my younger generation disagreed with us being there?
Mary Shelley had it right………there is always an angry crowd, waiting for the witch hunt.   Sometimes the hunted are people, sometimes the hunted are pieces of stone or bronze.
And some still carry torches……..
When will they realize the monster is them………………….

    Unfortunately this is just the start as I have read in many stories that they really want to destroy our Consititution, freedom and our way of life.
