Shadows of Our History


We cannot be forgiven for the sins of our forefathers, but we don’t carry

their shadows either. The blood stains are too great for us to erase

on our own, but perhaps through forgiveness and compassion

we can repair each other, and heal our land.


And thank God women can be part of the drum corps now

and even run for President.

      1. Yes I think so, but their actions leave scars we often have to deal with. For example in our country we need healing between racial groups. Peace and thank you!
