On this President’s Day, we want to remember the decisions and laws created by President Johnson to end segregation. One of the major factors at play in the 60’s for such a huge movement was the March to Montgomery. From Selma, a large group of African-American men, women, & children; along with those of different races, walked together to strive for equality. On our trip to the capitol of Alabama, we were witness to the location of where the march occurred. Along the main street were memorials and markers that aided in the importance of the march. Another treat for us was finding the church where Martin Luther King Jr. was head pastor during the 60’s. While it was closed for tours, we saw the outside of the beautiful building, followed by signs and memorials dedicated to the history of the church and Dr. King’s fight and sacrifice. Overall, a breathtaking street to travel, if you ever adventure the streets of Montgomery.
MONSTERS ARE REAL
On Monday, Billy didn't have his homework
And when the teacher asked him why
He said, "Because a monster ripped it up,
After I told him a lie." "You know monsters don't exist,
And if you don't turn in your homework
No recess you will get
On Tuesday, Billy had a stomachache
And when the teacher asked him why
He said, "A monster took away my dinner,
even my cherry pie." "Billy, I've told you once before,
Monsters are not real.
You'll have to wait till lunchtime
Before you get a meal." On Wednesday, Billy had a bandage,
Which covered his right eye.
When the teacher asked him how it happened,
This was his reply: "A monster was running after me
When I ran into the door:"
"Billy please," the teacher said,
"I don't want to hear any more." On Thursday, Billy refused to sit down,
And when the teacher asked him why,
Billy said, "A monster whipped my bottom,
Because I started to cry," "Billy, said the teacher,
" this is getting out of hand,
And if you continue with these stories,
In the corner you will stand." On Friday, Billy didn't come to school,
And when the teacher found out why,
She said a little prayer to God
In hopes Billy would survive.
For a monster had beaten Billy
and threatened him with a knife.
Now Billy lay in a hospital bed,
Fighting for his life.
So teachers please remember,
That monsters are for real.
Listen closely to kids stories,
A wounded heart you may heal

Day seventeen of Black History month: I would think everyone would know the work of Rev. Martin Luther & Corretta Scott King. I have always been respectful of their work in the peaceful protest for civil rights to effect legislative change for disenfranchised Americans from a range of backgrounds. In 1986 Corretta wrote a letter to block the nomination of Jeff Sessions as a Federal Court Judge. In 2017 Senator Elizabeth Warren tried to read that same letter on the Senate floor to illustrate how unfit Mr Sessions would be as an appointee of Donald Trump. Warren was denied permission to read that letter and " She persisted. " Three other senators attempted to read the letter in solidarity of Ms Warren and Mrs King. Finally Bernie Sanders was successful in reading the letter in its entirety. It angered me that the words of such a prominent leader were being silenced. I immediately looked up the letter and read it for myself after Ms Warren was silenced. The words and actions of these two people should be recieved with respect, as golden. In my life I have viewed them as American Royalty. #blackhistorymonth#blackhistory#martinlutherkingjr#CorretaScottKing#elizabethwarren#berniesanders#senjeffmerkley#neverthelessshepersisted#Civilrightsmovement#montgomeryalabama#selma#NAACP#badasswoman#montgomerybusboycott#segregation
