A Red Flag

06 Jul

When I saw it in a vehicle’s back window or on a rusty bumper, I knew what to expect. If it was displayed in a shop window, I knew to steer clear especially south of the Mason – Dixon. It was literally and figuratively a red flag. But at least when I saw it, I knew to be cautious…

I’m glad there was a decision today in South Carolina to remove it from statehouse grounds. You won’t change hearts and minds, but you can do what’s right. I’m kinda shocked, but stranger things have happened.

Given the recent terrorist attack on a place of worship, killing nine people, it’s right. Those who want to continue to “honor their heritage” can still do so. Because I know how to read a red flag.
