Elmwood and Pinewood Flag Petition sign now

Dear Concerned Citizens:

The purpose of this petition is to formally request the Charlotte City Council, keep all flags where they are in Elmwood and Pinewood Cemetery.

This petition is not about race, it is not about religion and it is not about organizations. It is about preserving the integrity and history of Elmwood and Pinewood Cemetery.

Flags have been a part of this cemeterys memorial standards, through out its history. The Veterans that are buried there should have the right to be memorialized. By having the flag they fought and served under flown over their burial sites. These flags are a way to step back in time to teach the true history of what happened. It is a document of those who actually were part of the events that shaped our nation. History is full of good and bad issues. The point of history is to learn from it, not eradicate it in the name of Political Correctness. Do you think we should change the facts of our history, for Political Correctness?

The Inevitable Result of Political Correctness~

By using the excuse of not upsetting anyone, the politically correct are demanding that people behave like the fool who would please everyone; that everyone must become such a fool! All must accept the notions of the Politically Correct as truth, or else! This is the same mentality that inspired the Inquisition and forced Galileo to recant; the same mentality that inspired the Nazis and obtained the Holocaust. Once expression gets placed in a strait-jacket of official truth, which is when the madness that occurs in all totalitarian states is obtained. Life, in private and public, becomes a meaningless charade where delusion thrives and terror rules. No one should be terrorized from truth.

The loss of tolerance and community input is at stake here. Unless plain speaking is allowed, clear thinking is denied. There can be no good reason for denying freedom of expression, there is no case to rebut, only the empty slogans of people inspired by selfishness and unrestrained by morality. The proponents of this nonsense neither understand the implications of what they say, nor why they are saying it.

A civilization is a shared understanding, and the decline of a civilization is the decay of this communal understanding from sensible to senseless. A community maintains its understanding by passing it from generation to generation. That is, each generation is charged with rearing its progeny as dutiful (unselfish) citizens who revere the morality, hence the manners, customs and traditions, of their parents. When this process fails and most citizens no longer revere their parents' morality but the morality of convenience (selfishness ), then the community stops improving its manners, customs and traditions and starts discarding them.

We cannot change history but we can learn from it, along with the good and the bad. The occurrence of the past is now over. The Veterans that served our country did with Honor. These flags that are placed or flown on a pole show Honor for their service and beliefs.

We the undersigned oppose any removal of any flag at Historic Elmwood and Pinewood Cemetery. This includes; All Military Flags, Historic Flags, Country of Origin Flags, Religious Flags, Etc.

Elmwood and Pinewood Cemetery holds the very blood of Charlotte and the Charlotteans that helped make this City and Country what it is.
