Walking the Bridge

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!

I can see why people would want to walk that bridge! Nice photo.

Even setting aside the history, just the structure of the bridge has great appeal to it.
