Should American Indians protest the statue of General Philip H. Sheridan in Chicago?
The Chicago Tribune Flashback article titled, Sheridan in the dock, poses another quandary in the continuing controversy of removing Confederate Statues in our nation.
If interested, read it and decide if it is time for American Indians to jump on the bandwagon and protest statues that remind them of past history in our nation.
Then I applied myself to the understanding of wisdom, and also of madness and folly, but I learned that this, too, is a chasing after the wind. (Ecclesiastes 1:17)
; to know madness and folly: that he (King Solomon) might better know wisdom, and learn the difference between the one and the other, since opposites illustrate each other; and that he might shun madness and folly, and the ways thereof, and expose the actions of mad and foolish men (Excerpt Gils)
In My Opinion
King Solomon coined the perfect phrase 3000 years ago about this controversy, Madness and Folly.
“Do monuments embody historical memory- that which we choose to remember and equally, that which we choose to forget? Questioning our ancestors’ heroes means facing up to hard truths- and asking hard questions of ourselves.“ (Source HERE)
