Consider This: Discussion is just a starting point

As some of the victims in the Charleston shooting are laid to rest, the debate is heating up over the Confederate flag and other symbols of the Confederacy around the South.

The emotions and feelings are intense and for good reason. Those opinions need to be expressed. And they are. On social media and in comment sections on news websites. And while I love to see people expressing their opinions and being engaged in conversation… I ask…how many have actually done something other than posting to Facebook? Have you written to state leaders or attended a rally? Contributed to or joined an organization that fights for your cause?

Consider This: Discussion is important and is the first step in righting the wrong. But it is just a starting place.
