I applaud Gov. Nikki Haley’s announcement on removing the Confederate flag from the Statehouse grounds.

The flags of the Confederacy, including the Stars and Bars, ceased to exist over 150 years ago, and since that time, we all have lived under and supported the Stars and Stripes of the United States of America, one flag, one nation, our flag.

We should never forget our heritage and relics of that past should be relegated to museums, history books, re-enactments, movies , etc.

It’s time to move on together as a nation.
