Juneteenth equals freedom and freedom is what America is about!
Congressmember Sheila Jackson Lee – TX18
Juneteenth falls on June 19th every year and celebrates the end of slavery in the US. While Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation back in January 1st in 1863, it took a few years for many enslaved African-American people to claim their freedom. June 19th in 1865 marks the day when more than 1,800 troops arrived in Texas to free the remaining enslaved people in the state. Since then, African-American people across the US celebrate Juneteenth with various festivities and events. As of this year, 2021, Juneteenth is a national federal holiday and I believe everyone should celebrate this day. Happy Juneteenth, AMERICA!
When all americans are treated as equal, no matter who they are or whom they love, we are all more free.
Wise words by ex-President Barack Obama. He was talking about americans to americans, of course, as America has more human rights issues it needs to work on before it can truly be the land of the free. Right here right now though, is Pride Month and I think Melissa Etheridge once said ‘Love is never wrong’. As long as it’s between consenting adults, I say heck yeah, enjoy the love!

I’m not even going to quote the song I’m sure you all started humming it when you saw the title. Right? Little did I know when I listened to it on repeat back in 1989, that hearing it again in 2021 would really hit my feels lol but here we are. Oceans apart. And I’m sure a lot of you are feeling it now too, going on over a year with covid restrictions but hey, we can see the end of it now and soon we can all be close again. Keep staying safe until we all are safe from harm.
