The polls being circulated about Confederate Statues exemplifies exactly what is wrong with this country.

One is given a choice: leave them where they are or remove them. Wow, can’t people in leadership or anyone with half a brain see another (or several other) options?

We could move them to a museum or Civil War battlefield. We could add a plaque explaining why the statue is where it is and the significance of the event and the lessons we now know. We could put another statue in place representing the opposite viewpoint. We could do local education on our history, the good, the bad and the ugly. The list goes on. But as long as people will only see or only accept the choice that they want, there can be no coming together. The “my way or the highway” is not how things get accomplished.

The sooner both sides recognize that, the sooner we can get things done that are desperately needed.
