So here I am on my laptop, which I haven't opened for almost two years, on Blogger, which is a big fat pain in the neck to get pictures on.
Anyway, the parade. Friday was our first Veterans Day parade in our small town and we enjoyed it.
It was the first event held downtown where we saw blacks and whites come together.
This guy had the nicest, happiest smile.
The law says segregation has ended, but the schools here, by virtue of their location, are pretty much still segregated. Also, many white kids attend private academies where blacks are excluded by cost. This is a black elementary school marching band. Elementary schools Up North don't have marching bands.
And here is a white marching band with one brave black young lady out front carrying the banner.
A couple little guys were carrying a handmade sign thanking veterans for their service to our country.
