complexity of people

Two faces. Presented by the same person on the same person.

Face of counsel and caution Which, had we some sense of national conscience willing to look back upon our error, could have been attended to with greater wisdom at the time and saved us much blood, treasure, and toil in needless consequences.

But it had the misfortune to come from this face too. The former KKK member who opposed civil rights and the purchaser of many monuments to his own perceived grand influence through the largess of the taxpayer. Including, of all things, a coast guard station in the middle of a mountainous state with no significant waterways or beachfront to speak of.

I guess some mysteries are better left confusing.
