I too love the south! I spent many summers in Charleston SC in my teen years. It was beautiful. I feel sorry about all this hatred of the south lately and all the statues going down. We cannot change the past---we need to remember it and not repeat it. My husband has studied the civil war for years and much of it had nothing to do with slavery. And Robert E. Lee said put the flag away and forget it----never fly it again. They were not evil people at all---Lee chose Virginia over the north because he loved his state---it hurt him to do so. It was a total different time and place----does not need to be brought up anymore. It is what it is. I think if history was still taught in schools that people would get a clue. I have never flown a confederate flag---but I do love the south. I am also very proud that WV seperated from the south and went our own way in 1863. Forget the past and live today and live and let live. That is what this old hillbilly thinks. LOL and love to all.

I love your thoughts Barbara! Loved West Virginia when we visited! I was born in Virginia but we moved so often. Out west and a long time in the south. I will ne so thankful when the hate implodes and we can live civilized again! I have a heart for love not hate!
