Stunned by gift's rejection

-A A +A

I am the organizer of the Southern Flag Pride group. This is relatively a new group established for the protection of the Southern Heritage and for the protection of our civil rights. We have had a very successful run, Williston to Dunnellon, which was mostly successful due to community support.

We have had nothing less than full support from the community. Our members have also made it successful by showing up for these events in nothing less than full Southern charm. There has been no protest, no racial slurs, and no hatred displayed. This behavior would not be tolerated by myself, because it contradicts everything that I think the flag represents. We are proud to be Southern. To us, being Southern or a flag does not represent racism, slavery or hatred. Being Southern is about politeness, respect, manners, sweet tea, homemade apple pie, hunting, fishing, etc.

Our next flag fun is Sunday, Sept. 27, starting at 3:30 p.m., from Bronson to Chiefland. As a group, we wanted nothing more than to give back to the community. I organized, with much support, a food drive where the participants would collect and donate food items to a local charity.
