    ‘Beware those who want to purify memories and present a tidy – and inaccurate –  history’ says the cardinal.
    Yes indeed!
    I guess that is what so many of these monuments already represent? A tidy and inaccurate reflection of the past?
    We need to find a way to remember the whole complex, inspiring, messy, and sometimes unforgivable stories of our past.
    We so much want there to be ‘goodies’ and ‘baddies’ so we know which side to champion and which side to condemn…..
    Sadly our lives, and histories, as flawed people are not so simply categorised!
