A New Birth Of Freedom
(confederate statues reconsidered)

"With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations."  

                                        - Abraham Lincoln, Second Inaugural Address, March 4, 1865

Proposal:

Do not remove or destroy Confederate Civil War statues.  

Rather, begin a national campaign to commission artists to redesign, embellish, or re-imagine existing statues.
