America is bringing down the old, and raising up freedom

By Gregory & Ernest Disney-Britton
As the Confederate battle flag comes down, the Rainbow flag is rising. How do you feel after this week? Following the racist massacre in a South Carolina church, lawmakers throughout the south, as well as major retailers, have made quick plans to remove a racist symbol that represents a war to uphold slavery. Following yesterday's same-sex marriage ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court, churches, lawmakers, and corporations are celebrating another milestone on the road to full equality in America. While these changes do anger and disturb some, progress has always had that impact, but  in our constant journey to form "a more perfect union" both instances are moments to celebrate.  So, bring down the old, and raise up the new!
