Friday, June 22, 2007

Last year I did a post on Juneteenth. In it, I mentioned that I was disappointed in the lack of news articles that showed up covering it. I even mentioned that I had hoped that in 2007 there would be more articles.

The old adage – “Be careful for what you wish for, it might just come true” seems to apply here.
2006 articles – 23
2007 articles – 1,954

Ughhh.

I am not even going to comment on all the bad publicity, instead I thought I would share a link to a local station in Charleston that took it serious and provided good coverage of the local event. The article also has a link to the video story they did originally.

Also, I am going to modify my wish from 2006 –

Perhaps next year, we will see more people celebrating Juneteenth or at least a bit more people acknowledge its existence. For no matter what you feel about the causes of the war, this is an example of something good that came out of it. Something very good.

And say -
Perhaps next year, we will see more people celebrating Juneteenth or at least a bit more people acknowledge its existence in a positive way. For no matter what you feel about the causes of the war, this is an example of something good that came out of it. Something very good.

Juneteenth is America's 2nd Independence Day celebration. 29 states recognize Juneteenth as a state holiday or state holiday observance, as well as the Congress of the United States.

Together we will see Juneteenth become a national holiday in Amemrica!

Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was
wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and
I'm looking at alternatives for another platform.
I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good
platform.

At the beginning he had given these measurements to his personal saddler for his own horses, later on other saddlers used them and passed them
on to the following generations. The main benefit to
choosing a gate is that your horse will not be able to run away.
If you pick a good horse you'll be able to travel the
countryside in style.
