Our city has come a long way.
I just read an amazing blog post about Rosa Parks. Her arrest happened exactly 55 years ago in our own little city… the bus boycott that followed, Martin Luther King, Jr.’s rise to Civil Rights Movement leadership… it all happened in the same little city where we live today. It brought tears to my eyes to read this post about their amazing fight for fairness, (which still isn’t won, by the way.)
The same city that sparked the Civil Rights Movement is also the place where we will now be able to raise our beautiful African daughter. And we’ve received all of the support in the world. Thank God for progress.
