Late night musing from an old Tiger who should be

Asleep by now. It’s painful for me to see all the changes that are being forced upon our country, our hometowns, our neighborhoods and especially our universities by those who claim that they have been mistreated by society for hundreds of years. I believe their claims are valid in many instances and it should be obvious to most that the country we live in today is very much different than the one that I grew up in the 40’s and 50’s. Renaming landmarks, destroying statues and similar events just doesn’t seem to be the way to go in my opinion. Why not leave many of these things as they are where we can always look back and see where we have come from in the past sixty years or so? Having something to compare progress with seems more important than destroying the past. The road we are taking now to forgive and forget will be a long road with lots of bumps, imo.

Good night. Time for my warm milk and toast.

dialogue in the current environment. Working together toward solutions, where all sides listen to each other, is so yesterday. It's all about rage and demands. Shut up, capitulate, and pay.

Amen! After 76 years plus on this earth and 34 in the military serving this country I, too, will always agree that folks have the right to protest and change things as needed. But, to destroy history is not going to get the changes a few want. Gonna be some tough times ahead for all folks in the USA. Good night.

Not changing history. Just not glorifying people who history has proven were not nice people. I agree that changes we are seeing have the chance of going into radical thought processes but I dont see the removal of statues as erasing history at all.

There would be no need to protest if there wasn't a need to protest.
