This is a story of recovery and reconciliation that occurred 50 years after one of the most horrendous periods in American history. In 1913 the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania threw a reunion for any and all American Civil War veterans that wanted to attend. The Blue and the Grey came by the trainload from all over the States. It was termed a pilgrimage by some and that’s what I would call it for sure.
There are bunches of still photos and numerous motion picture clips available on UTube. This is an easy way to step back to an era that we may find hard to understand from here in the 21st century. It is a way to see an example of reconciliation at it’s best. We all adore President Lincoln and of course he was very concerned with joining our States back together after the fighting was over. Here is a vision of pilgrims that traveled a long way individually to join in this communal meeting, this ceremony of peace. It is truly amazing and tearful to view as we sit years and eras and ideas later.
But it is the same peace, the same restoration of relationship that is vital in whatever era, whatever place or in whatever universe. If these guys could pull this off then anything is possible for us and for our future. This is my belief.
others have been down this road before loves, Felipé.
