Happy Juneteenth!

Happy day to celebrate the end of slavery in the U.S. Juneteenth is a holiday in 40 states; here is a tweet from Jamar Tisby which links to an article which makes a case for Juneteenth as a national holiday. Whether Juneteenth should be the day or another day should be designated, there should be such a holiday to commemorate the end of slavery.

  1. Juneteenth would be a great holiday properly done. A time to celebrate, to mourn, to repent, to go forward in positive rebirth. Sort of a secular Easter.
