The More Things Change… The More They Stay The Same

This weekend marks 56 years since civil rights marchers were attacked by Alabama state troopers on “Bloody Sunday.” Think about that. It has only been 56 years since African Americans literally had to put their lives on the line to vote. Now 56 years later, States around the country are introducing legislation that are transparent attempts at voter suppression. One can only imagine what the great John Lewis, who for the first time will not be among us on this day, would say to such blatant attempts to deny people their democratic right to vote and have their voices heard. Indeed it is a sad commentary on America.
