mg BS: Happy Juneteenth, Y'All! (29) RE: BS: Juneteenth 21 Jun 20


I am not sure what the original title was but I presume it was happy juneteenth. I would have preferred leaving the happy in. What could be happier than being freed, even years late, even though you should never have been enslaved. Why are all these songs begging for freedom...oh freedom is for me...every link was freedom's name..let my people go...and it is not for me to say, but I hope (and hope for my cousins from Cameroon) that everyone celebrates and rejoices on Juneteenth and doesn't get too sad..Martin Luther King Day could be the more somber day. In fact, there was a MLK celebration years ago in Olympia, WA and it was great..everyone wore brown, and there were dixieland bands playing and it was joyful in the way St. Patrick's Day is...especially think about the children. They deserve a very happy day in a world full of strife. One day to be especially happy. I think we have lost the belief that it is OK to be happy. It's OK, every now and then.
