Lost Cause

A peaceful protest.

A peaceful protest.

I never thought I would approach a crowd of confederate flag supporters. But there I stood asking questions and listening to complaints. “They are taking our freedom away.” Upset about the removal of the confederate flag but no mention of the 9 people murdered in South Carolina. One person even made a peace sign and another said it was about “Heritage not Hate.”

Attending a family reunion, I could understand their sense of history and the loss of tradition.

Still old wounds that never heal are considered cancerous. I wondered if they understood that this wound was self inflicted. It was possibly one from their ranks that caused the trouble not the 9 people praying in South Carolina.
