Kev’s Daily Take On 12/01/2022

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.

Awareness Spotlight shines on…

ROSA PARKS DAY commemorates the lady who wouldn’t give up her seat on a bus and subsequently caused a whole city to be practically shut down.  On this day in 1955, Rosa was coming off her work shift and took a seat in the colored section of the bus.  As the bus began to fill up, the driver asked her to give up her seat for a white person.  She said no.  She was arrested and charged $10 for this “violation.”  Martin Luther King Jr. and other civic leaders got wind of this and organized a bus boycott for the day of her trail.  The boycott lasted 381 days, shut down the city of Montgomery and generated integrated buses.  Today we honor her bravery for standing up to racial prejudice by not standing up.

  1. And your MIL turned me on to Nero Wolf and Archie Goodwin, so very many years ago. Besides Nancy Drew, these are the only “real” books I still have. I think I’m going to get one to read again. Thanks for reminding me!


    1. Good for you. I have not read one of his…yet. I have the Hardy Boys collection and you may have inspired me to check open one of those. Have a great day Martha.


  2. Lee Trevino was a special golfer. He possessed great skills as well as being a fan favorite.


  3. I totally agree. That was a special era in golf.
