What’s going on today is really upsetting. And police are standing by and watching throngs of stirred-up people destroying pieces of our history. This makes no sense at all to me. You can’t change history by getting rid of all these things, as if they never existed. How foolish.
People harbor way too much hatred toward each other in our country. Destroying all these statues make none of these vandals any better than the terrorist group, ISIS. You cannot undo the Civil War. Maybe we don’t all agree about what happened there, but it did happen. We can’t throw temper tantrums over it. That time is behind us. We can move forward and try to live side-by-side and as equals regardless of skin color, religion, political views, opinions, etc. Way too many people have been killed in wars, or murdered just because these things. Killing and throwing tantrums won’t solve any problems. I don’t know if the human race will ever learn this lesson.

I don’t know how you all feel about this, but it makes me sick. Why can’t we all get along with each other? Life is what you make it. You can still have your views, opinions, religion, beliefs, etc., but let others have theirs as well. It doesn’t mean you have to agree with them, but let’s stop all the killing and vandalism.
