I took this picture on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama. My wife and eight year old daughter took the picture as I stood on the bridge. This is the bridge where Civil Rights Activist were attacked with tear gas and clubs.The event is known as “Bloody Sunday.” A Version of the events will be told in the new movie “Selma.” Came a long way but still have a lot of work to do in our society concerning race relations.
I would like to wish everyone a Happy Day Before Thanksgiving! Be safe during the holidays and remember to be thankful for the things that we have. Family is important and we sometimes become busy with our schedules. Share time with loves ones if possible. Life is not promised to any of us and this may just be the last time that you see one another. This is also a good time to forgive those who have offended us. This can be a difficult thing to do sometimes. This is a process that requires a cleansing of our hearts and minds. Looking beyond the hurt and pain in order to release someone from any guilt. My goal is to continue to grow more into a life of freedom and treat others with respect. I am thankful to be alive today. Gob bless everyone and have a great day!
