What IS going on with these Church burnings in Alabama? It saddens me that people are seeing structures that hold such deep meaning destroyed. I haven't talked to my father, yet to get his perspective on things. But I imagine that it's something he has something philosophical to say to help deepen my understanding of things. Still, I don't understand why people do the things they do.

Also interesting is that every single story I've read on the blazes make it very clear that both white and black congregations have lost their churches. Our history always, always seems to haunt us.
