Significance of Today

Really, I wasn't planing to post today - until I saw online some reminders of the significance of this date.  

June 21.  On June 21, 1964, three civil rights workers were murdered in Philadelphia, Mississippi during Freedom Summer.  The murders of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner  marked one of the defining moments of the Civil Rights Movement.  Today, 50 years later, the incident still teaches lessons of commitment to civil rights, full citizenship, and equal justice for all.  Let us remember them and their legacy.

Today is also the 31st birthday of one Edward Snowden.  Happy Birthday, Edward; may you have many blessings!
