A Historical Moment

The flag goes down

Today was a historical day in the life of our little state of South Carolina! We usually stay out of the lime-light and just enjoy the beautiful famously-hot weather and southern hospitality of our neighbors. But today was a bit different as the whole world watched with baited breath as the controversial Confederate flag was ceremoniously lowered for the final time on statehouse grounds.

While I am deeply saddened by the tragic events that led up to today, I am immensely proud of how our state has come together in peaceful harmony to move forward and embrace a better future. After one verse of Amazing Grace, the flag came down (as you can see from my view on the ground). Then, after a brief chant of USA, USA, USA, was humorously followed with Na Na Na Na Hay Hay Hay Goodbye.
