Let Freedom Ring

Tuesday, February 02, 2021

Today is National Freedom Day. This celebrates the day in 1865 when President Abraham Lincoln signed what would later become the 13th Amendment, which for the most part ended slavery. Some people could argue this statement. Click here to see an amazing animated video: freedomsring.sta

Today is also National Dark Chocolate Day and I could use some chocolate right about now. I had my 2nd Covid Vaccine today and ugh my arm hurts...but hopefully that is it and I don't get any other side effects.

We had a resident's son send flowers and I was surprised to see the Covid flower. Now I know that's not it's name but dang it does look like that Covid bug.

Well that's all I've got for today. What did you do for National Freedom Day?

    It *does* look like the virus! I think it's a protea? (originally from S. Africa iirc).

    I didn't know about Nat'l Freedom Day, but I have noted Juneteenth for years...there was a Fest that happened in Tucson for last few decades.

    It does resemble COVID germ!

    Thanks for sharing the link. I was talking with my partner last night about how horrible it is that we're still fighting for equality among races all these years later. It makes me mad and it makes me sad.
