Kev’s Daily Take On 11/24/2022


I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands,
One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

THANKSGIVING is upon us.  Friends and family get together for fellowship and feast.  May both your heart and your table overflow with bounty, warmth and charity.  HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Awareness Spotlight shines on…


Today, at Noon on Cole’s Hill in Plymouth Mass., the NATIONAL DAY OF MOURNING will take place. Native Americans will gather to remember the injustice wrought on their people since the pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock.  They will honor their ancestors and remember the struggles of times before and struggles that still go on today.  The United American Indians of New England have been sponsoring this event since 1970 and open it up to anyone who wants to attend.  There is a march through the historic district of Plymouth followed by speeches.  Though anyone can attend, only Native Americans are allowed to make the speeches.
