Chris Bennett: A great Adair County Story!
Comments re article 45587 JIM: Mans humanity to Man a Civil War tale of compassion
By Chris Bennett
What a great Adair County Story! It is hard to believe these men would be reacquainted in such a historic way, especially in the Weed Community of Adair County, Kentucky.
We are now at the 150th anniversary of the war between the states, and 150 years later it is hard to understand how neighbors, friends, and even brothers could have taken up arms against one another. Especially in the Christian nation we claimed to be at that time.
They must have forgotten Jesus' teaching, "love thy neighbor, as thy self".
The Civil War and its cause is a topic that will be debated by historians from now to the end of the ages. The truth of the matter is that it was a failure of the people living in this country to do the right thing.
Did we learn our lesson? Will we ever see a war like this again?
Sadly , it seems that every generation has to have its own war, wouldn't it be nice if we could all just get along?
- Chris Bennett
