Raoul’s 2 Cents

Revisionists In Our Midst

It’s late and here I go again finishing up this email late in the night.

I worked all night on a huge project and finished when the sun was already bright and shiny. I hit the sack and slept for hours. My head’s still adjusting.

Very quickly, I skimmed the news and noticed that people are talking about flag burning and statue trampling. Do you agree with the demonstrators?

I can I see why there’s a lot anger: To uplift people you do not agree with doesn’t seem right. But who is to declare someone as hero or foe? In this politically charged atmosphere you will never get a unanimous decision.

Lincoln was hated by his enemies but today he is regarded as a great emancipator. Custer, Davy Crocket, Annie Oakley were fearless … but not in the eyes of the native Indians. OJ SImpson was … nah … let’s not even go there.

So is the game “majority wins?”  And who are the supposed “majority”? The louder, more impatient, ones? And does the majority have the right to destroy? And when political moods swing (as they are prone to) in the other direction, does the new majority have the right to take down the statues they do not like? Where does it end?

I don’t have answers. But I do see beautiful art and traditions being trampled on. And I see people pushing agendas. And that’s not nice.

Share your thoughts and lead me to your path of enlightenment! And everybody said — “Aummmm …”

Be safe, be healthy, and remember “without our traditions, our lives will be as shaky as a fiddler on the roof!” TGIF people!

    Thanks Raoul. This destruction of statues and demolition of places of worship disgusts me and that is why they do it. They are miserable and angry and want us to feel the same way.

    Thanks for all you do to make us smile instead.
