THE GULF

Aside

People who dislike the way things work out detest history. Adults are fully aware that the practice of acceptance is necessary here. Yesterday is history tomorrow a mystery rings true. Those who would attempt to alter or completely erase a historical event or events are what Socialist do. Lies must become truth therefore burn books write new ones; history books that is. Our culture, as Americans, is founded in history. History is a great teacher, which can scold; never do that again. Intelligence commands us to move on

Some folks attempt to alter history having nothing to do with Socialism. The word acceptance is not present in the vocabulary. One way to make this happen is to tear down monuments representative of a historical time or event. They believe this will erase the incident. Some folks are that way.

Some insist their race is “supreme,” some claim that only their race matters, and one group believes Nazi fascism is the answer: They are all wrong and insult what this nation stands for.

Those who defend those monuments have a case. These stone history books represent a war fought, lives lost, changed, or heroes made. They speak too the wrong as well as the right. Fixated in stone they represent insult to others. Yet, for every insult is another monument representing praise. All depends on what side of the gulf your standing.

The intent of this article is to address the gulf, the abyss that divides this great nation.
We have been changed as a nation over the past years by two words. These two words
were introduced into our educational system, and have altered the thinking of many.
They are responsible for the premature deaths of countless citizens and the reason for the gulf between us. They have caused race differences to be amplified and the intensification of erroneous labeling of people. The two words; political correctness, which makes us all walk the pirates plank.

On one side of the gulf stands a stone Robert E. Lee on the other side a stone Martin Luther King. Who among you believes tearing down either one of these monuments changes history? The answer is obvious. The solution is to build a bridge.
