March For Our Lives in Morristown!

Morristown, New Jersey town hall

March For Our Lives

 

On Saturday, March 24th one of the March For Our Lives 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.

His birthplace is a historic landmark in Caldwell. Visitors are not allowed to take photographs inside the home most of the time, but I took some outside photos of the home dressed up for the holidays!

 

The home is open year-round from Wednesday through Sunday. Admission is free. 

 

Always call ahead to make sure that it is open!

The Baby Ruth candy bar is an American classic. 

 

Rumors have persisted through the years that the chocolate bar was named after Babe Ruth, the iconic baseball player, but the candy company insisted that it was named after Grover Cleveland’s daughter, Ruth.

I Have A Dream

 

Let's all celebrate America's birthday by watching Martin Luther King, Jr.'s magnificent speech, certainly one of the greatest speeches ever given by an American. 

 


Now if only Abe Lincoln's Gettysburg Address was also available on YouTube . . .I cry every time I see this, because I am so moved.
