Thank you for all that you do.
If you would give me an address to which to send it, I will send an, alas, small donation towards your efforts to visit Mr. Thrasher. I was very disturbed that a gentleman of his age and service to the nation should be so badly treated. Surely the individual involved who complained should have had more sense or even more simple human decency. Have we come to this that all that matters is how I feel about something? This person is working in a hospital setting where the first and only concern should be for the well being of the patient. There are a lot of things that I don't like and a lot of symbols in this culture that I find distressing and distasteful, but I am also aware of the rights of other folks to have what they find important so long as it is not illegal. Of course, if we are honest with ourselves, it won't be too long before the battle flag and EVERYTHING Confederate becomes illegal.
Again, thank you.

Dear Ms. Valerie,
I have such great aspirations that with the help of the Almighty God, the people of this nation will come to understand that it was a noble obligation that the people of the South made a stand to protect not only their homeland that had been invaded, but also the sanctity of what used to be a Constitutional Republic.
And, Ms. Valarie, I am truly appreciative of you for the things that I have learned about this epoch from your writings. I am inclined to believe that only the best possible outcome for the Southland of America, and her noble people, shall arise because of the actions of the Avarice who called themselves Puritans. "I see now how they run.". The hope of this nation and it's survival has always been upon the shoulders of the Southern people, and they will respond. God bless you, and again thanks.
