Doc well stated.  I have been trying to think of how to respond to all the post and now I see you did it for me thanks.  I am like you I have only recently found out from a cousin that my ancestors on my mother's side did have slaves but on my father's side I have ancestors that march off to war from Michigan when they heard the call.  They were captured by Van Dorn's men at Thompson station marched off to prison and when released he was so ill he was discharged from the army.  

I agree we should not forget but we need to look to the future. . 

I was a teacher of gradeschool children  I have heard so many appolgies over the years from kids made to say they are sorry.  They are so hollow.  Somehow I feel that is what this kind of appology would be for slavery. 

Again I agree with you . We have enough going on today to be concerned about .
