Robert E Lee…

Over the last week or so their has been much debate over keeping the name of Robert E Lee at our local high school here in San Antonio.

I do have to say I’m extremely proud of my old high school, and feel like a rebel heart and soul. I loved my high school years, I loved my fellow students, I had many friends who o still consider special in my little black book of happiness. I can honestly say I liked the teacher’s, the dedication of all our clubs who many of my friends were a part of. I have especially fond memories of the Football team who kept us excited during the season and really played from the heart.

I have never been one to jump on any cause without a lot of research and understanding. Please find out information on all sides before you make an informed decision.

Still researching –
Don’t ever do your self an injustice by jumping on any band wagon because everyone else is riding it. Educate yourself!!!

    A silence and a gasp went across the segregated congregation. This had never happened before, and the clergy were frozen in their places not sure what to do. A black man kneeling beside a white man? It was unknown in the old South. From the back of St. Paul’s a lone figure in a gray suit walked forward and knelt beside the freed slave. With a look of command he nodded to the priests, who gave both him and the black man Holy Communion together, eating bread from the same paten and drinking wine from the same cup. The lone figure was Robert E. Lee, who knelt beside the man whose slavery, among other things, he had only recently fought to defend. And when the vanquished Southern commander came to the altar, the rest of the congregation followed him as well, white and black together. – See more at: http://www.civilwarmonitor.com/front-line/fantasizing-lee-as-a-civil-rights-pioneer#sthash.hNTApx7R.dpuf
