I chose “A House United” as a theme for the blog because I don’t think this theme is a typical lens through which to view the Civil War, Our War, and its ongoing significance to us. The conversation I want to have is the one that asks – what is it going to take to heal ourselves of these profound, self-inflicted wounds, move on with our evolution as a country and encourage us to deepen our commitment as citizens?
There is an equally simple and devastating alternative question to this one. What other choice do we have?
“A house divided itself cannot stand.”
A house united cannot fall.
