Maybe it is because my work involves the dead……..I am an Intuitive Medium.

Maybe it is because I walk among the ghosts of Gettysburg; my farmhouse shielded soldiers.

Maybe it’s because I love history so much.

Whatever the reason, this week’s events have caused me much distress.

Each news report tells of another attempt to take down, rename, erase, and remove part of history.

I often wonder if it was worth it……….all the deaths.    War is never worth it……

But our nation seems still so divided……..were all those boys bodies lying on the ground worth it…….was all the grief of families worth it……..

If you start to take down monuments……..to me, that sacrifice is worth even less…….diminished somehow.

Instead of tearing down, erasing……..write a revised history, a true history.  Honor the contributions from both sides and from all who participated.   Honor the brave black soldiers who when finally permitted to join active duty, were often sent on dangerous missions…….they were killed while surrendering…….

Eighteen black soldiers were given medals of honor………honor them.   Our country’s youth needs sources of pride, removing sources of hate without establishing sources of pride will not do much good.

Honor the sacrifice and history of all………..

I am not in favor of any side, any flag………I am in favor of honor and remembrance………..

Peace,
