Just imagine a county in a country where there is a divide among the people. Roughly half of the population enjoys a monument they believe honors their heritage and their family. The other half abhors this monument they believe is a reminder of hatred toward their people and a time in history they were treated in a despicable manner. That is probably not hard to imagine. But imagine the responses of these two groups being different. What if that first group said “We must tear down this monument … We cannot do this to people … We are inflicting pain and suffering … This is not good, and We must be better.” What if the second group said “You cannot tear down this monument … You can honor people … We can draw inspiration from this story … This is not good, and we must be better.” These are not the red hills of Georgia, but imagine if we could sit down together at the table of brotherhood right here in Talbot County.
