This petition is in direct response to your attempt to open discussion on the removal of the Robert E. Lee statue and renaming of the Lee Circle. We strongly believe that any such talk or action would be irrevocably detrimental to bridging any gap between our fellow New Orleanians. We believe you do not create a future by pointing to the past. We don't agree with you that this is a symbol of how we used to be. It is who we are. A proud union of people who defend our home regardless of the outcome. We at Save Our Circle hold Lee Circle in our fondest memories of New Orleans, the greatest city on Earth. You have a choice Mr. Mayor. Divide the citizens by giving into the agendas of one group or unite your fellow citizens and move into the future, together. We have a voice. We have a choice.Save Our Circle.
