Has taking down statues changed anything? This was history; this is what we studied in high school. Today, the schools don’t teach history, and the kids know nothing about it.
It seems our leaders are following Hitler’s ideas. He took away all books; now our leaders are taking away all history. Our politicians will do anything for votes.
Removing what’s outside doesn’t help; it’s moving what’s inside. If we haven’t changed inside, the outside won’t matter. If someone was bothered by a statue of Martin Luther King Jr., would we take it down?
Our leaders in Frankfort and Washington should have limits on their terms in office. They do nothing but get richer.
