Well, the confederate battle flag has finally been removed from the SC State Capital. That's great news! One small step for man, one huge step forward for mankind. What was a part of a painful past to many is now put to rest, figuratively. We can't erase the past or the unfortunate incident that led us here- the Charleston 9 did not die in vain; sometimes it takes a tragedy to move us forward and to bring us together.
Use this unfortunate incident to be a LIGHT and redirect the lost, enlighten the misinformed, and be an example of love to ALL. You don't know the thoughts or upbringing of the people that you encounter day to day. Be KIND. Learn to appreciate the differences in others. Research what you don't understand. No, this world is not a perfect one, and I doubt it will be in our lifetime, but we can be an example of the change we want to see.
Stop separating yourselves from the Whole. We are ALL connected. Spread LOVE, and Pray for PEACE.
God Bless Us ALL.
