Black History Month Thoughts...Nona

Happy Black History Month! The freedom that African Americans have that are guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution were won with blood, sweat and tears. People of all races were humilated, beaten and martyred. Men and women did not stroll down American streets to gain equality. They marched! Our lives must honor their sacrifice and we must continue to progress.
