      Cannot imagine the memories of Mrs Robinson – an amazing moment for her.

      Hello TOD – thank you Chips and NW and everyone for the reporting today. With being upside down in the time & ongoing family issues I am truly sad that I missed events today. I have been slowly catching up – but it may take me all my Sunday & well into the week to see it all. I was a teenager through these times yet my main memory relates to JFK, RFK and MLK – little else was publicised in my world. (Not much has changed today – main headline in world news MH370, the President’s speech comes 2nd.

      It has been lovely to see some names on TOD not seen for awhile – it has also been amazing to see positive comments about folks who we usually don’t speak of in a positive light. It has ALWAYS been PBO and his supporters who are willing to accept anyone, anytime if their message is true – yet this cannot be said of the other side of politics. The timeline today of Mrs Greenspan says it all.

    Thanks for highlighting Mr. Lewis’ words, Nerdy. He is truly an American Hero, one of our greatest greats.

    Rename the bridge —– The John Lewis Bridge.

      Funny enough, I wouldn’t be one voting to rename the bridge, at least not this bridge. I say let the Edmund Pettus stand for what it stood for. If they want to name a bridge in John’s honour I really do not think this should be it. IMO already too many attempts are being/have been made by Republicans to tamper with and try to rewrite history.

        I agree VC, I don’t think they should rename the bridge. It’s more powerful because of the name.

          March 7, 2015 at 9:10 pm

          ‘more powerful because of the name’

          Yes; such a ‘perfect’ fit for the role it played. In fact, IMO, rather than naming a bridge for John Lewis, I’d be in favour of them naming a school or some other unifying place after him. Wouldn’t surprise me if there is already a school in the south bearing his name.

        March 7, 2015 at 9:14 pm

        I hear you, VC. I understand that perspective, and that thought crossed my mind — let the people look at their ignorance and hatred for all perpetuity. My view is that things are renamed in this country all the time and John Lewis is deserving of the honor. I think the history of Edmund Pettus would be preserved when future generations wonder who John Lewis was, in my long-shot, hypothetical scenario.

        They could always put a little plaque down for old miserable KKK Pettus, or maybe build the Edmund Pettus Memorial Restrooms somewhere closeby, lol!

          The Edmund P memorial restrooms sound promising! 😀
          Seriously, I suspect if this had come up at an earlier time (last year, year before etc) I might have been all for it, but the recent spate of Republicans wanting to tamper with the historical record was a turn off for me. Where do we stop once we start tweaking out the painful elements, and **replacing** them with the more positive? I totally agree that John Lewis ought to me remembered in a visible way by a country in which he has been a tireless fighter for equity. The fact is, in the minds of those who live in the area etc that bridge will ALWAYS be the E P Bridge. To my way of thinking, John Lewis deserves his own ‘monument’, not a rewash.

      Why because you say so? Every time someone Black is fortunate there’s always one of these lurking in the shadows telling them they better not complain. Notice they never apply it to anybody White?

          I have been telling some family that “grateful” is not a word I like. This explains perfectly what I have been trying to say. They have not been able to understand my thoughts – I will use this tweet exchange to explain.

    • March 7, 2015 at 8:27 pm

      “Obama” has no right to complain… except for the 400+% rise in death threats… except for the blatant disrespect from opposition and media… except for the vitriol from the mouth breathers who wear their racism proudly.

      Excuse my French, but fucking cunt.

    • March 7, 2015 at 8:35 pm

      To Truth Teller, has American been good to her? I am willing to bet she still complains. So why can’t the Obamas complain, because they are black. To hell with people like that.

      President and Mrs Obama has always stated how fortunate they are to have reached the highest goal in America and feels grateful and humbled that people’s of ALL races voted for them. They take nothing for granted. They come from humble beginnings and took adadvantage of opportunities and hard work. NOTHING was given to them. They worked hard and PAID their way and dues. They’re still paying dues.

      Funny, in all the years I’ve been “following” the Obamas, I don’t recall I’ve ever heard any of them “complain,” in the first place. Ms. Ugly Truth Teller’s the only one bringing it up. We all know the racist reasoning behind it, too.

      Brush her off our shoulders! She’s the dirt they wipe off their shoes, without complaint.

    Great tweets, great pictures of history, from Mr Lewis. Astonishing that it took centuries and bloody struggles for “the land of the free, home of the brave” to give its own citizens the right to participate in democracy.

    On the previous thread, carolyn stated that PBO is a poet, which is somewhat ironic.

    I was going to say something just about that. When listening to PBO go through the litanies of just all the “we’s” that WE are I couldn’t help but think of Carl Sandburg and his poem Chicago.

    There is a true poetry to PBO.

    One other thing. I saw a lot of tweets about how e was really putting it to the GOP and challenging them, specially in regard to the VRA. But he was really challenging all of us. As he said, even if all the restrictive voting laws were gotten rid of, we would still have one of the lowest voter participation rates in the world.

    It is easy to say it is due to the laws, and yes they are onerous, but the fact is that in this country, people really don’t give a damn about voting.

    • March 7, 2015 at 9:05 pm

      Agree with you John (and Carolyn) re: President Obama as poet. I’ve thought that while listening to many of his speeches including several segments of his 18 Mar 2008 speech on race.

      His emphasis on turnout and our responsibility to do so, to VOTE, is a major take home message from his speech today. Laws only get passed by people elected to legislate. If we don’t start VOTING – all of us – then those who do are, in many States, voting for people who are hell bent on rolling back the VRA as far as they possibly can.

      That Ukrainians, in the midst of an invasion and civil war, still had voter turnout in excess of 60 % should be a total embarrassment to any American who did not vote in 2010 & 2014.

      Had we had the turnout in 10 and 14 we had in 08 & 12, America would be on a vastly better path than it is today.

      It is only because of the exceptional strength of leadership of President Obama that we’ve achieved the many successes of the past 6 years.

      The obvious, willful, incessant attempt by the GOP to destroy his Presidency, irrespective of the cost to America, would have been crushed, if Ds (& Is) had voted in large #s in 10 and 14.

      I think we will be hearing a lot from President Obama (and many others) about TURNOUT between now and 8 Nov 2016. Folk best get the “WE” is ALL of US and break every record for turnout in 2016 (and keep doing so, in subsequent elections). The Kleptocrats have no chance if WE ALL just VOTE!!

    “Tens of thousands of demonstrators descended on Rabin Square in central Tel Aviv Saturday evening to voice their opposition to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and call for fresh leadership, according to local reports. An estimated 40,000 people participated in the protest, according to the Times of Israel. The rally came 10 days before national elections are set to take place.

    Meir Dagan, a former chief of Mossad, Israel’s national intelligence agency, was the event’s headline speaker. At the podium, Dagan said of Netanyahu, “We have a leader who fights only one campaign — the campaign for his own political survival,” the Times reported.

    The widow of a military colonel who was killed in the Gaza conflict last year also spoke. “How many women like me will lose their heart until we reach an agreement,” she said of the conflict, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported.

    The rally was organized by the so-called One Million Hands movement, according to Al-Manar news. The movement describes itself as a grassroots campaign seeking a change in Israel’s leadership and a rethinking of its priorities. Its supporters say they want a leader who will focus more strongly on issues such as the cost of living, fair wages, health care and housing. Attendees are expected to paint the square with thousands of hands to show their support for the movement.”

    To the few from Ferguson who were shouting as POTUS spoke today, I hope they heard the part were POTUS talked about people not voting. I hope it was heard all across America. Because it is ashame that 36% of Americans voted last election. Shameful.

    On the 50th anniversary of the historic march for civil rights, Republicans are largely no-shows. This afternoon, in the hot center of the state of Alabama, a parade of Americans will pay homage to a historic march. Meeting on the Edmund Pettus Bridge, on which hundreds of black Americans were beaten for the crime of standing up to their government, Barack Obama will remember a heroic feat of rebellion, and a brutal act of repression. The president, the White House has announced, will speak personally “about what it means to stand on the spot where police beat and gassed 600 unarmed protestors,” and he will explain what the moment means to him as an African American. And the Republican party’s current leadership will be nowhere to be seen. By declining to join, Ohio representative Marsha Fudge told Politico, the GOP has “lost an opportunity to show the American people that they care.” Fudge is, of course, entirely correct. But the absence is far, far worse than that. By electing to skip the proceedings — and to send a former president and a handful of congressional representatives in lieu — the Republican leadership suggests that it does not recognize what Selma represents within America’s long history of public dissent.

    If we are to regard the founding generation as being worthy of contemporary political lionization — and we most assuredly should — then we must consider those who marched at Selma to be so, too. If we are to put George Washington upon our plinths, and to eulogize him on our currency, we must agree to elevate Martin Luther King Jr. to the same dizzy heights.

    They are less famous, perhaps, but by virtue of their brave march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge, John Lewis and Hosea Williams immortalized themselves into quintessential American heroes in the mold of Sam Adams and George Mason. To miss an opportunity to solemnize their daring is to blunder, disgracefully. If all men really are created equal, the anniversary of Selma must be treated as a date every bit as important to American history as is the end of the Siege of Yorktown.

    As it would be unthinkable for the leadership of the Republican party to ignore July Fourth, it should be unthinkable for its luminaries not to celebrate the anniversary of the March to Montgomery either. Where have you gone, Speaker Boehner, a movement turns its lonely eyes to you.

    — Charles C. W. Cooke is a staff writer at National Review. EDITOR’S NOTE: Since this article was written, CNN has reported that House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy will attend the march “after all.”

    The Bridge Builder
    By Will Allen Dromgoole

    An old man going a lone highway,
    Came, at the evening cold and gray,
    To a chasm vast and deep and wide.
    Through which was flowing a sullen tide
    The old man crossed in the twilight dim,
    The sullen stream had no fear for him;
    But he turned when safe on the other side
    And built a bridge to span the tide.

    “Old man,” said a fellow pilgrim near,
    “You are wasting your strength with building here;
    Your journey will end with the ending day,
    You never again will pass this way;
    You’ve crossed the chasm, deep and wide,
    Why build this bridge at evening tide?”

    The builder lifted his old gray head;
    “Good friend, in the path I have come,” he said,
    “There followed after me to-day
    A youth whose feet must pass this way.
    This chasm that has been as naught to me
    To that fair-haired youth may a pitfall be;
    He, too, must cross in the twilight dim;
    Good friend, I am building this bridge for him!”

  33. March 7, 2015 at 11:29 pm

    Thank you, Ms. Chips and everyone here for a day in my life that I will personally honor and cherish.
    Words cannot express what this whole day has meant to me.
    I woke up very early and it was as if I knew something very special and unique was about to happen.
    The strangest thought occurred while I was getting dressed since I was going to be able to be in Selma today. I thought to myself what it must have felt like 50 years ago for those who were planning to march across that infamous bridge what were there thoughts?
    How they have possibly known in advance the impact this would have 50 years later? Some would never return back home. Never get a chance to me the first African American President.

    I put those thoughts out of my mind because I was not going to get into a funk not being in Selma today. I was going to press on and do whatever chores I had to do and come back here at TOD and enjoy the day with all of you.

    Well, just as fate would have it for the all of those sheroes and heroes 50 years ago in Selma, Alabama I had no idea how humble and grateful this day had begun and would end. No idea.
    I decided to stop my and visit my sister at the nursing home and bring her a small portion of her favorite vanilla ice cream. It is very rare that I would sit in the Day Room with her. I usually would wheel her in her own room.
    But…today was different. It was very different.
    They had both televisions on CNN tuned in the speech. I sat down and mesmerized.
    As I looked around in the room, some of the residents were staring as much or even more than I had ever seen them at the television.
    Usually, they would be nodding or lethargically sleeping.
    As my eyes scanned the room I made sure to smile, acknowledge each one of them who made eye contact with me.
    Those who were not nodding or sleeping were clearly enjoying everything that was being said by the Congressman.

    But when the President came up to speak their whole body language changed. Some sat up and others woke up. It was if they recognized his voice. “Mrs. Mary” who my sister and I have taken to is 101 years old and I was so sad that she had not awaken because she talks so proudly of our President. I make sure to fill her in current news from TOD when I do visit.
    Those who were awaken were so proud as if they were watching their own grandson.

    I knew when the President quoted my mother’s favorite song this was going to be a powerful, important speech. I have not heard that song since I was a little girl.
    I cannot express to you how proud I was to be able to watch this superb speech with all of these men and women senior citizens who have known for most of their lives injustice, inequality, loneliness, poverty and yes, even abandonment.
    Today, our President included them as well. I have thought that I could so proud of one person.
    I am so glad that I marched after Selma that bridge over troubled waters.

    As the speech ended so eloquently quoted Scripture thatmwas hidden in his heart from a true Hebrew I knew that God is still in control.
    We, the People. We, shall overcome. Yes, We can.

    Good night TOD.

    Been a very emotional momentous day;

    my personal complete agenda for the day was placed on hold as I took time to listen, watch, learn, & reflect on the sacrifices of so many and the challenges that still lie ahead.

    my soul is enriched.

    thanks one and all

    What a Beautiful day it was yesterday…The President’s words…he seems to know just what to say…

    in my mentions i saw that there were some who felt that the President did not go far enough,,,but i suppose there will be some that cannot find comfort in whatever he says….

      Pf, there are some who would be dissatisfied if God himself descended and spoke to them because they are truly unhappy inside themselves. Yesterday was a day that will always be remembered not just as the anniversary of a great historic turning point in our history, but as the day Barack Obama lifted up America with his words of wisdom, love and vision. If you could listen to him speak and want more, you will never be satisfied. Even heaven itself would be flawed. Hope you have a good day.

        yes…that is how i felt…so i just let the mention go by…but i did take note of it..and .i went to see that person’t time line to see if there were any other comments that perhaps the President had said somehing of worthiness to this person….it seems that was the only comment made….it is a pity…because the President said so many worthy things…i try to understand ..as the President would…perhaps PBO does understand…and he would just shake his hand and just keep it moving….as i should…

    Morning. Hope everyone is coping with daylight savings time, the lost hour of sleep and the afterglow of a glorious historic day.
