"All different, all equal."


I will be brief. My personal opinion on the statues and history, — let them be, people need to remember. It is history, political background doesn't really matter in case of question to be or not be. Moreover it shouldn't be question at all. To be. It is already happened, you can't change past, but you can hell change the future.

That's what really matters.

We often say: "All different, all equal." But why can't we the same principle on the statues?

People and families will remember everything and almost any nation is build up on the unique and colossal rainbow of events bound to each other, forming common scream, common voice and if you cut out as you think "bad moments" it will already be something different, but not the Nation.

We live in the enlightened age, but sometimes I feel we're going back to the some sort of dark ages.

All historical figures are crucial important. Yes, these historical figures are different. Deal with this. People are also different, is it surprise?

I love the quote of Robert Lee: We should live, act, and say nothing to the injury of anyone. It is not only best as a matter of principle, but it is the path to peace and honor.


Historical statues also have the rights as well as people do. Respecting statues, you respect human, you respect History.


I cast my voice for keeping up statues of the past, thinking big and walking straight into the future.
