Image: Grave with a Confederate flag.
Will not work,
Will not help,
Just ignores most-certain laws.
Weeping for the past that's gone
Has an end
Has to stop--
Just obscures each fresh new dawn.
Seize tomorrow while you may.
Grab for hope.
Grab for truth.
Seize tomorrow; live today.
When one rules justly over men, ruling in the fear of God, he dawns on them like the morning light, like the sun shining forth on a cloudless morning, like rain that makes grass to sprout from the earth. (From 2 Samuel 23:3-4 ESV)
I understand people's desire to honor the dead, including those who fought on the losing side of a war. Yet race-based slavery was evil, and it was one of the main things that the Confederacy was fighting for.
