- Mar 7, 2007When I visit battlefields, I too am saddened by the ways that Americans used to
regard and treat one another. Specifically, I am saddened how it was once thought
that it was OK, or normal, or even good, that people of one race could own as
property the people of another race. I do take some comfort in the fact that the
mess that the Founding Fathers left was eventually repaired, and their ideals had
a chance to be realized.

Like most any caring and decent person, I was also saddened by the ways that
Americans used to regard and treat one another, but it did not go beyond the
normal at the time.
