Harrison Ford playing Branch Rickey, says to Chadwick Boseman playing Jackie Robinson,
" I need a man with the courage to not fight back "
That was a fantastic line !
That being said I will get to the subject of this post -- Courage !
One of the most courageous people I know is Susan Hathaway, Yep the founder of the VA Flaggers.
This young lady stood in front of the VMFA alone with a Confederate Battle Flag to protest what many see as an injustice ( The removal of the CBF from the Chapel ), God bless her for that !
Now then by doing so she has come under constant attack from opponents who distort her reasons for carrying the flag.
One in particular Brooks Simpson, seems to have a fixation on Susan, he is constantly Brow Beating her,
making ludicrous accusations about her, and challenging her to reply to his comments.
She gives no reply to him ! So he calls her Silent Susan. I tell you what, Susan is anything but silent !
she ain't afraid of a microphone and don't mince her words, add to her speaking ability, a wonderful singing voice. And she is entertaining and informative.
So it's kinda like the Robinson story, Susan is out front forwarding the colors trying as best she can to protect all of our southern Ancestors. While The whole time the Floggers continue to attack her.
She is a woman with the courage to not fight back and stays focused on her task.
God Bless ya Susan, Thanks for all your hard work !
