Removal of flag stirs reader's pride in this country

Forsyth County News

The Confederate flag was just removed with dignity from the statehouse grounds in South Carolina. This again reminded me of the diversity and love that the American people have for each other.

I understand that those who defend the American flag believe in freedom, individualism and opportunity. Those that defend the Confederate flag believe in family, home and honor. 

These beliefs are truly compatible. Therefore, people of all backgrounds can come together as one in this country, as they have in South Carolina.

May God continue to bless the people of the USA in this great land of freedom and liberty.
