When will we as a country accept each other with “tolerance, respect and empathy?”

The above will never happen until each of us stop “researching” history, demanding that replicas of monuments and statues be destroyed. By doing these “witch hunts,” we will never know peace and congeniality in our United States of America. History was, as it reads, “history.” The past can’t be cleansed or changed, but our future can, if we treat each other as we would want to be treated.

The Lord speaks through your heart. Jesus wants us to Love and bear one another. Not judge and hate. We must live in truth on ALL sides of this trial and tribulation


Excellent and moving column. The famous words during one of the earlier race riots of Rodney King were: "Can't we all just get along?"
