Monuments to a better future
I previously touched on erasing our past in my letter to my liberal friends. I’d like to expand on that concept a bit, kind of explain where more of that came from. In addition to erasing people from the past, or changing their roles, we’ve been on a kick to tear down old monuments. Naturally… Continue reading Monuments to a better future
