Slave Cemetery Filled in With Dirt

I just read on a mailing list that a slave cemetery on Wesley Chapel Road in Cobb County, GA has been filled in with about 2 feet of dirt due to some construction going on in the area. This, of course, is unconscionable. If you live in the area and have seen the destruction, please report it to anyone that might listen. One place to report the damage is the Cobb County Cemetery Preservation Commission . By the way, I would like a picture or two if anyone can get close enough (without getting into trouble). Update! Looks like the proper folks were notified. I just received word an investigtative team is checking into this! Good job!

The hand of the Lord came upon me and brought me out in the Spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley; and it was full of bones. Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and indeed they were very dry. And He said to me, "Son of man, can these bones live?"

So I answered, "O Lord God, You know."

Again He said to me, "Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, 'O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord!' Thus says the Lord God to these bones: 'Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live...'" (Ezekiel 37:1-5, NKJV)
