A Juneteenth Tribute

154 years ago today, a tremendous change occurred in this country.

“Change” is a word we know all too well, but here I will use it in a very specific way.

Our country was made different. Made radically different. Transformed in such a way that it will never be the same.

Brave young men and women gave their lives, lest their children survive, and their future families thrive. Change was achieved, but to this day it is still conceived. Conceived as a future notion, ceaselessly set in motion.

This change is meant to set the scene, so that, to all, it can be seen, as years of Jubilee…forever known as…

Juneteenth

Happy Juneteenth to all!
