Horne started out with a calm complaint.
Words can be a powerful force and when they are delivered with conviction and feeling sometimes they cannot fail.
In late June one feisty black woman, 30-year-old Bree Ann Byuarium Newsome of Raleigh, kitted herself in a helmet and climbing gear, before climbing a 30 foot high flagpole in front of the State Capitol in Columbia, South Carolina, and briefly removing a confederate flag.
Her actions sparked a #KeepItDown campaign on Twitter but the flag continued to fly over the state capitol.
This week Horne used words and emotion to finally make the case; the flag of the confederacy belongs in history.
Thursday, the House voted 94-20 to pass the bill to remove the flag.
Now it needs removing, pronto. The bill is signed so just 'do it'.
Friday 10am the flag will be removed with 'dignity' and about time.
