....this is just a friendly reminder to all folks out there that tomorrow

June 19 is JUNETEENTH...

it wasn't until June 19, 1865 when Union Troops reached Texas that it was official that the enslaved were now FREE...even though the Emancipation Proclomation had been signed on Janurary 1, 1863

you can go here and here and here for more information

find some sort of way to keep recognizing this day and spreading the word to others you know and keep the tradition of celebrating this day ALIVE

we went to a Juneteenth festival. unfortunately, we ended up leaving due to kids fighting. then again, we can't expect them to honor the day if we don't educate them on what it means. be the change...
