What the hell is wrong with people? How did so many become so filled with hate and self-loathing that they don't want anyone else finding peace and sharing love?
Regardless, the focus here has remained on the families. The funerals have begun and there are more to come. Friday, President Obama eulogized Reverend Pinckney and it was perfect. I did not find him politically motivated, and I very much appreciated and agree with his statements as did the majority from whom I have heard and read comments.
And here is all I have to say about the flag issue:
On the other hand, we have the governor of our state who seems always to be politically motivated (and yes, I do believe that the motivation behind the actions is important.) Regardless of how, though, I will not be at all sorry to see the confederate flag gone from the state house grounds. I'm one of those people who believe that particular flag to be a symbol of hate and racism among other things. And, also yes, I have lived in SC my entire life and have always felt this way. Even from the time (eons ago) I was a young girl. I have never appreciated or trusted those who put their loyalty behind the confederate flag. And now, it appears, some of them still put the flag and their own agenda regardless of any negatives that agenda supports and hate-filled actions that agenda motivates. But, to those who support the flag, let me suggest that you start explaining it to the children in the photos below.
Of course, there are these types of individuals on both sides of an issue no matter what the issue is. No matter what, there are simply going to be idiots in the world.
Just to be clear, no matter where you stand, hate will not win in Charleston. Neither will political agendas or journalists/anchors who act as instigators.
