People walking the bridge has become a common sight in Selma.
This photo was taken several weeks ago, long before the influx of visitors
before the 50th year commemoration of the Selma/Montgomery
Voting Rights Marches. Official events that include appearances
by President Obama and his family
and former President George W. Bush begin March 5.
Already, related events are drawing tourists and media to town,
and the standard media story is always a comparison of the Selma of the 1960s
with the Selma of today. I just hope they come here with open minds
and think of a few new angles for their articles!
At least we will have spring-like temperatures for the beginning of next week!
Have a wonderful weekend!
