The Confederate Battle Flag was lowered today at the South Carolina State House. The flag has been the center of much controversy for some time. South Carolina, in the wake of tragedy, is attempting to move forward toward an era of healing, where actions speak louder than the “Heritage not Hate” mantra. It is unfortunate that this era had to come in the wake of tragedy, but it did happen. Dylann Roof’s attempt at starting a race war failed, but it served to open the eyes of many Americans. In the video below, witness a multi-racial and bi-partisan crowd lowering the flag and ushering in a new era.
