    Gary,

    As a proud Skynyrd fan, I applaud you on your brave decision to not display the confederate flag. Symbolism does not travel in just one direction. You recognize that you can both be proud of your southern heritage and still not display what is a symbol of slavery and oppression to so many. By doing so, you separate from the hate groups who wave that flag for those evil purposes. You see that flag is not the be all end all. Flags don't write great songs, but you and Ronnie and the others did. I continue to honor that. Even if you are pressured to start using that flag again, because principles alone don't put food on the table, I do personally accept and appreciate the above explanation you have provided. Rock on!
