Can we compare that period of American history to the Holocaust? It's not that far a reach. Already there are those who would say the Holocaust never really happened - well, it really did - and there are pictures and plenty of evidence to prove it.

So we obliterate every picture, painting, writing, etc.that describes human slavery and soon you would have those who would say, "No, No! That is all a lie - it never really happened. And, you know what? There would be those out there who would believe the lie. And that would be WRONG! But it might be too late if we tear down the records.

Leave the GWHS Murals in place - they are to be treasured - they speak the truth.
