Arlington: My Remarks to the Committee
March 16, 2023
Dear Ms Lunelle,
To not listen to and heed the passionate pleads from the some thirty individuals from across America on Wednesday, March 15, 2023 to not remove the Reconciliation Memorial Shrine and headstone of its Jewish architect would shatter and bring into doubt the tout that America is the greatest Country in the world.
For many of us who have fought in the public square and have attended public mandated hearings...a process that government says must be presented to the people with full knowledge that a decision has already been made and is just a formality that the State says must be undertaken. However, something on this day changed!
I have no idea what the Chairman of this subcommittee will report to the full Advisory Committee for Arlington National Cemetery.
However, I do know that the people who came on this day to stand with their Shrine brought the hour of reconciliation once again, and if they are heard and turned away by the unlawful foolishness of the Army, the Naming Commission, and the Congress who authorized it "no matter the guns trained on their heads with the 10th Amendment", the people of the South will rise up off their knees and we shall begin again.
And I, the son of former slaves, shall rise with them as my ancestors did. And for those of you who continue to tear down and vote to tear down our Memorials across the South; I give fair warning of retribution. Read my comments below. God bless you!
Son Of Former Loyal Southern Slaves
