Erasing history doesn’t change it. Changing the name of a school will do nothing more but erase what Robert E. Lee High School has been all these years. I believe that it’s important to have these reminders around us of how far we have come and how far we have yet to go.
I’m in support of change. We need to start with the way children are raised, how we treat each other, how we respect ourselves, how we represent our community and most importantly, hearts need to change.
