    Happy Birthday, Ruby Bridges.

    I used to see this image and think it was so long ago, now I think, wow, that wasn't too long ago. 

    "I remember turning onto the street. I saw barricades and police officers and just people everywhere. When I saw all of that, I immediately thought it was Mardi Gras. I had no idea they were here to keep me out of the school." 

    A worth while three minutes of your time is at PBS: Ruby Bridges Desegregates a School.

    May we all be as brave as six-year-old Ruby. May we all continue this never ending fight for equality.
