This city belongs to all of us, not just some of us.   Now we can try to figure out what’s next. We are creating a new legacy.”

David M. Bailey, Arrabon

David’s comments were included in The New York Time on September 8, 2021 as the statue of Robert E. Lee was removed from its pedestal on Monument Avenue in Richmond, Virginia.

The statues on Monument Avenue were at the heart of Richmond’s identity, and the fact that they came down seemed to surprise almost everybody.  I would have thought somebody would blow up Richmond first before anyone would have let that happen.  It’s a modern-day miracle.”

David M. Bailey, Arrabon
