Contextualization of Monuments in Virginia
 

I do not believe the regulations or discussion surrounding the contextualization of  various monuments throughout Virginia should be fast tracked.  Our history is far too rich, complex and nuanced, to be subjected to the vagaries of the current social winds that may be blowing.  These monuments and descriptions thereof merit a thorough and well considered exploration of all facets of consideration.  The discussion needs to be meaningful and joined by many, from all points of view, in order to develop a thoughtful approach to how the Commonwealth interprets or in some cases, re-interprets, history.  The full blown two year comment and open discussion period needs to be followed.

Thank you for your consideration.
