With all the ongoing world events, even those involving the safety of women and children, and with the recent anniversary of 9/11, and with the ongoing Covid battles, I'm so glad someone has shifted our focus back where it belongs.  Let's stick to what's important and take care of our own.

Some people are actually able to care about more than one thing at a time. Sorry you’re deficient in that area.

I wonder if Confederate Era persons who have been Enshrined were to somehow come alive and see and experience present day Jacksonville might be well pleased with not having an Edifice Erected in their name.
