Hello Jeffrey, CONGRATULATIONS' - I can see why you won. I agree with you absolutely. We have a theatre over here in England where the man's name has been torn down because he was involved in the slave trade. We forget, as disgusting as it is, it is still part of our history - and not all history is good. The slave trade was a sad part of our history, but the building whose name has been changed was built by the man whose name was removed, on money he made from the trade. They have not torn down the building.
A great many buildings in this country, especially in London were built with money from the slave trade. Much of Britain's wealth was built on slavery. We can't hide from truths and tearing down statues is disgusting. It solves nothing. Regards Dorothy x

Great job, I don't even try to do these. Congrats on winning. I also agree with the words. I do hope many cities with be a peace soon. And I hope men will learn to care about each other. I fear it may not be possible without the Lord. Well done sir.

I agree with your sentiments Jeff. Glad that you were able to realize through this piece that you wrote that vandalism and violence will never bring any sort of peace to this chaotic world. Well done.

So much to talk about in 7 short words. I often wonder if there is a place in history museums for our moments that have been cast in a shadow over time. What was once pride turned to shame by time, but it's so troubling seeing these artifacts vandalized. How do we measure progress if we throw away the ruler? Great job

So glad to see that this one won the contest. It deserved to be a winner. It says it all and I cannot understand the reasoning some have for wanting the history of our nation torn down. Thank you for sharing.

Amen to that! I wrote a poem about this same idea for a different contest-with an eye towards what would end up replacing these monuments. You went further by saying they shouldn't be replaced. I appreciate how you moved along the spectrum: first defaced, then disgraced, finally replaced.
Everyone should read your poem...and reflect before reacting.

It has always been the way of small minds to deface monuments. It's a wonder they haven't had a go at Abe. So much anger today, they like to take their grievances out on statues of men/women who have achieved so much.

Congratulations on your contest win, Jeffrey. It is a well-earned recognition.

Historical monuments around the world are coming down and you have addressed that with great precision and to the point.

Again congratulations. :)

Gloria

Hello,

Interesting poem about monuments. It's a very contraversial topic now days. Should we replace slave owners with better people in history? Absolutely.
