After A City Council Removed A Veterans Memorial, Residents Decided To Do THIS

When the city council of Knoxville, Iowa decided to bow to the demands of an atheist group and remove a veterans memorial from a city park, the citizens of the small city decided to do something about it.

According to Brietbart, the memorial — placed in memory of a fallen soldier — was made up of temporary markers intended to be replaced by a permanent monument and included a soldier kneeling in front of a small, white cross. Americans United for Separation of Church and State demanded the city remove it. The council agreed after a 3 to 2 vote.

But the people of Knoxville were not happy. They first responded by setting up small, white crosses — at least 2,000 — in front yards all over the city. And then, on the following day, which happened to be election day, they truly made their voices heard.

They voted the offending council out.

Two of the three council members who voted in favor of removing the memorial lost by a landslide. The third chose not to run.

Resident Doug Goff, who fought to keep the memorial in place, commented about the election results, “I was extremely emotional, because this cause is very deep to me and I felt like I have let people down. I’d like to send him the message that if you’re not going to listen to Knoxville, Knoxville’s not going to back you.”
