What statue is most needed in Chicago “to rethink the place, purpose, and permanence of monuments of in our public places?”
The Chicago Tribune article titled: “City review of its monuments plods along,”, reported:
The Chicago Monuments Society seeks ideas from individual artists and community groups “for the development of new monuments to rethink the place, purpose, and permanence of monuments of in our public places,” because of monuments that are objectionable now because of past beliefs of slavery.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient wisdom verse and suggest the following monument replace all the “objectionable monuments” that have been taken down of another person in history who everyone can agree with regardless of ethnicity, and past actions in history along with Googles Wisdom.
No one remembers the former generations, and even those yet to come will not be remembered by those who follow them. (Ecclesiastes 1:11)
What’s My Point?
There is one person in “former generations” that is still remembered because of his words and actions that has proven to be wiser than King Solomon..
My point is no one can find His words and actions disagreeable in past and future generations even though His statue has been from tune to time torn down in history by former generations. Yet, He and His words are still remembered.
Who and What Words…?
The most truthful and compelling words most relevant to resolve all the ethnic problems created by humans since the beginning of time, and was the basis for the USA founders Declaration of Independence.
Words and actions that every ethnic and political party will agree, and is needed to be reminded of every minute in every day to end both ethnic and political dovishness in every generation since the beginning of time, are as follows:
Jesus says, “And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.” (Luke 6:31)
The phrase (or Command in the Bible) “do unto others as you would have done unto you” should be used as a reminder for oneself, or for someone else, to always treat other people as you’d like to be treated. Sometimes, the phrase might be silently recited in one’s mind or pasted on a poster in a classroom.
In My Opinion
The Chicago Tribune article ended with the following statement”
“I’m excited about the opportunities that are going to come from the empty space that will promote other narratives that are more humane, and that allow for healing in our communities.
In my opinion, if every statue in Chicago was replaced with the statue and words of this man, and every child was taught in childhood in depth meanings of his values, Chicago and the world would be a better place for future generations.
Would all ethnic and political communities benefit by being reminded to heed these words help promote the” other narratives that are more humane, and that allow for healing in our communities.”
Since it is unlawful to teach children in public schools this verse, should we tell them to google the words every day to prevent us from remembering how these words have never been forgotten. Words that have proven over time to be better advice that King Solomons wisdom as this following verse proclaimed 2000 years ago about a visit 3000 years ago and is still remembered in spite of King Solomons verse:
“The queen of the South will rise up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here.” (Matthew 12:42)
Since it is unlawful to teach children in public schools any Wisdom and Love lessons from the Bible, and the Supreme Court Folly will probably rule the same for Government statures, should parents become “excited” enough to vote for legislators to support school choice or school vouchers in the next election?
