I want to thank Roger Hines for the outstanding article published in today’s “05/12/19 MDJ: “Why I Still Love The South.”
I and millions of other people all over our nation feel just as he described in the article he wrote. I personally am a descendant of a great-grandfather and great-great-grandfathers who fought for the CSA. I am not ashamed of our Southern heritage, and it saddens my heart to see just how the South and it’s great and well-respected people have been demonized.
Roger Hines stood up and stated exactly what we the “Southern people” feel, not like our Southern politicians and leaders, who have not addressed (it) and should be ashamed of themselves.
So I just want to say to Roger Hines with much gratitude for having the guts to say what (should be said then and now) about the South, and “We all are very proud of you.”
