Let Us Build Bridges   1 comment

Selma, Alabama is the Ninth Poorest City in Amarica Per Capital (August 10, 2021)
Selma Gave America the Right to Call Itself A Democracy

We still have many bridges to CROSS,
So come on ya’ll and LET US!

Let us start, Yes you and me
With a simple and easy decree,
To do something simple, EVERYDAY,
To uplift Ourselves and Our Families,
In small, Nugget-size Ways!

So,

When STONES are THROWN to Slay
Us ALL,
We Must, We WILL, We SHALL, build
bridges instead of walls!

And so,

We catch their stones and build
bridges of Respect and LOVE for
Ourselves, Our Families, and ALL
Communities who share this World!

We catch their stones and build 
bridges because, EVERYONE 
matters equally in the World!

Located in the Historic District of Selma, Alabama at the foot of the famous Edmund Pettus Bridge,
the scene of “Bloody Sunday,” the National Voting Rights Museum & Institute is the cornerstone of the
contemporary struggle for voting rights and human dignity.

This was a special stop on our August Road Trip.

“The vote is the most powerful instrument ever devised by man for breaking down injustice and destroying
the terrible walls which imprison men because they are different from other men.”
