https://www.change.org/p/walton-cou...derate-flag-from-the-walton-county-courthouse We need your help to remove the Walton County Courthouse's Confederate Flag. For a third time since 2002, we are petitioning Walton County Commissioners and concerned citizens plan to attend an upcoming July meeting (date TBD) with this petition showing the support of those near and far who request whole-heartedly this flag be removed from government property. Why removed the Confederate Flag from the front of the Walton County Courthouse? Why now? Symbols of hate have no place in our government property, especially the Courthouse, a place for justice for all The Confederate flag is not a symbol of southern pride but rather a symbol of rebellion and racism. On the heels of the brutal killing of nine African-American people in a South Carolina church by a racist terrorist, it's time to put that symbol of rebellion and racism behind us and move toward healing and a better United States of America starting with our local community. Take the Confederate flag down and show love and respect of all. Place it in a museum and never forget it's historic significance and all it stands for. Show true Southern pride in ourselves and our community by flying the American Flag, the flag of unity, freedom and justice for all, over the Civil War Memorial on our Walton County Courthouse lawn.
