Proud and patriotic

The issues of my letter are with the Robert E. Lee issue of changing the names of streets and such.

I do not believe in slavery and have never been prejudiced. I do believe we descended from Adam and Eve and by God’s own creation, whether we are red, white or blue or black or blonde. Maybe the ones who find fault with heroes of American history are really the Neanderthals.

Are we going to replace our Statue of Liberty and replace Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson with such traitors as Judas Iscariot and Benedict Arnold? These questions I ask.

Do our schools even teach anymore what American history and government are all about? Do our churches even tech what the Holy Bible is all about?

Does anyone really understand what patriotism is, or know what the Declaration of Independence, our Constitution and its Bill of Rights are about?

God bless America again. Let freedom ring. I’m proud to be an American.
