Important Message from New Jersey Memories

I will not be adding new posts to this blog. I have decided to combine this blog with my other blog The Literary Lioness

For years I tried to write two blogs including the necessary social media accounts and it was just too much, especially since I had multiple social media accounts for TWO blogs, plus my personal accounts. This became overwhelming, especially after I became ill in the fall of 2015.

I also wanted to move to "self-hosted" WordPress, and I decided to only move one blog. I will post about New Jersey, books, writing and movies all in one place!

I will still be restoring photos to this blog that were removed during The Great Photobucket Purge. I will also occasionally update an old post with new material.

To find out more about moving my blog, I am writing about it in the About section of The Literary Lioness. You can now join me in my continuing blogging journey at The Literary Lioness!

March For Our Lives in Morristown!

Tuesday, March 27, 2018

On Saturday, March 24th one of the #MarchForOurLives rallies took place in Morristown, New Jersey. 

Protesters came with clever signs and a real sense of accomplishment amongst the surprisingly large crowd. About 13,000 marchers showed upMorristown was one of about 800 sibling marches to the main one in Washington, DC.

It was a cold day but with blue skies and bright sunshine. Drones flew overhead, speeches were made, and determination for real change pervaded the crowd. 

First, we gathered in front of town hall. 


Then the march began! 



Afterwards, there were some speeches! 


You can read about it (and watch videos)  here.
