First and foremost this was not my idea. I saw a shared post on Facebook and thought it was a wonderful idea. I would be happy to give credit where credit is due but didn't want to without said persons' approval.
The city of Charlottesville witnessed vile racism which culminated in a horrific loss of life. The renaming of the park is to honor a brave woman who needlessly died too early. Ideally, the Robert E Lee monument would be removed as well and replaced with a dedication to the officers who also lost their lives on a tragic day.
