At the end of this really tension filled year there’s a lot I’d like to say but mostly just this: There are always those who will make themselves the victims. And there are a lot of people out there that will try to convince you you’re either for or against them. There’s no in between. It happens on every scale from the interpersonal to the global. But here’s the thing. Life has gray areas. There will always be blame to share. I will have friends that I disagree with on many things. And I will have enemies that I agree with occasionally. What’s important is that we find a way to cooperate to make this planet a better place for the next generation and not leave it trashed. That’s all I got. 2017.
The Lorraine Hotel was revitalized in 1982. It now houses the National Civil Rights Museum, providing exhibits on various civil rights issues from slavery to Jim Crow to the marches in Alabama to Dr. King’s assassination. It also highlights continuing issues in the 21st century. Proponents point to the educational value of the museum and the draw for tourists. At the same time could the money used on the museum have been put to better use? Affordable housing? Substance abuse programs? (Many buildings near the museum are unoccupied or in a state of disrepair.) Questions or comments below are welcome. Tell me a story.
I usually don’t post for birthdays but my dad’s is tomorrow. Here’s one of the many barren and desolate places he’s dragged me to on our countless road trips. (In actuality this place was really interesting and so were all the other places we’ve traveled to.) There’s nobody I’d rather tour the country with. Love you dad.
