Please Don't Put Down Your Battle Flag
It saddens my heart to hear of this news. I can not blame you for seeking employment
in the mainstream, most of us have to , in order to make a living. And I have
heard the rumors of you being a "money grubber" and or a "con
artist" etc. Sir I would like you to know that I have never believed those
rumors, and have actively defended you to those who made / make those accusations.
I am only glad that I had the opportunity to meet you while you were still
speaking on behalf of our heritage. It was truly an honor, and the picture that
was taken of you, my wife Michelle and I rests in an honored place in my living
room , on top of the entertainment center for all to see. I display it with
great pride, and never miss an opportunity to tell visitors your story, our
story, for it is not about Black or White, it is about the heritage that was
born and fought for and died for. The heritage that we have tried to preserve
Three years ago, fed up with the way the country has become, I took my U.S.
flag down for good. Recently I put it back up, not because I have "sold
out" but because I want it to be a reminder.
The U.S. flag on top of my pole as a reminder of the country we are citizens
of by default. The St. Andrew's cross battle flag below, as a reminder of the
country I hope to someday live in that has been restored.
Sir, go out and make a living, but please don't put down your Battle Flag.
I sincerely Thank You for your service and will always think of you as a friend
and a brother.
