I removed the Confederate battle flag from my flag pole after the shooting and deaths of nine people in the Emanuel AME Church downtown. I placed the 1st Confederate States of America flag under the American flag.

On July 3 someone came by my house and shot my windows and awning while I had gone to pick up my husband. I was gone 45 minutes to an hour. This message is for all of South Carolina — removing the flag won’t appease or serve anyone.
