55th Anniversary of the Selma

Civil Rights March to

Montgomery, Alabama – USA

March 7, 1965 - March 7, 2020

The Gratitude We Owe Them is Great!

The Spirit of Peacefulness Was Set Early - Not Late!

If there were never any leaders & advocates of

"Civil Rights in America,"

would there have ever been any

mention or recognition of

"Human Rights?"

Today in the 21st Century,

many of today’s youth may

not know that the first

Selma March to Montgomery,

Alabama took place on March 7, 1965.

March 7, 1965 march across the Edmund Pettis Bridge in Selma, Alabama.

Fifty-five years ago, staunch advocates for

“Civil Rights in America”

made history with a public show  of  unity  and  

unyielding determination in the ‘Selma March’ to

ensure the constitutional rights of African-American

Citizens  to  exercise  their  right   to   vote.  Acting  

against  the  then  racial practice of segregation in

the U.S., those “Civil Rights” pioneers brought

about historic change.  And in doing so,

their laborious struggles had

a profound effect on the validity

of our Nation’s constitutional existence.

The violence which was done against

members of the U.S. Citizenry who banned

together  in  the  “peaceful protest”  march

from  Selma  to  Montgomery,  AL  –  across  the

Edmund Pettus Bridge  in 1965  –  was  a horrific

event which shall  never be  erased from history. 

Nor should such acts of brute force perpetrated

against “peaceful protesters” ever be

repeated in any State across America.

Their determination to achieve the

“right to vote” should  be  viewed  as  nothing  

less than  “patriotic duty”  to  Country  and

Citizenry.  America owes a great deal of

gratitude to the those who trod upon

forbidden grounds in the process

of putting the United States

on track toward lawfully

upholding the rights of its Citizens. 

That long and arduous pioneering

journey  for  the “right to vote”  was  an

“exemplary”  achievement  in  our  Nation

which  proclaims  constitutional  freedoms,

equalities  and  justice  for  all.  The  results

of those profoundly notable historic efforts

benefitted not only  African-Americans,

but  many  Americans  of

diverse heritages whose 

“Civil Rights”  were yet being

systemically violated across the U.S.A.

As  “We the People”  continue our

journey through a new era, a reflection

on  the  past  must  be coupled  with  a

continued march toward the future: 

earnestly working together for

the purpose of forming and

ensuring that “lawful” and . . . .

“more perfect union” for “all  American

Citizens” –  regardless of ethnic heritage,

religious beliefs or political standing.  As we

forge ahead in our united efforts to continue

building a better Nation, “We” must never

forget  to  show  gratitude  and  honor  to

those brave pioneers who paved the

pathway and made  the ultimate

sacrifice – on and off

battlefields – for our own “freedoms

and rights here at home in the U.S.A.”

“We the People” must forever be

mindful that a “genuine show of

gratitude and honor” is expressed with

“ACTION:”  action with commitment and a standing of “UNITY”  with unyielding

determination to act responsibly within

our “Citizenry” to uphold law, justice

and  those  inalienable  “rights” –

  inextricably belonging to . . .  

“ALL Americans”

. . . including our future generations

already with us today.

The “Selma March” must not be in vain!

“Human Rights” include “Civil Rights!”

The “Future” is here!

“Quality of Life”

with . . .

“Inalienable Rights”

Must not be denied!

Let not lawless injustices overwhelm . . .

“We the People” in unison can

yet make Dr. King's Dream

a reality with

“LAW & JUSTICE”

navigating at the helm.

"I look to a day when people will

not be judged by the color of their skin,

but by the content of their

character."
