So it happened. I quit my job, packed up the Scooterbug and hit the road. Not sure where I'm going or why, I just want to ride.
This year marks the 151st celebration of the holiday known as Juneteenth and few places will celebrate with more gusto than Galveston, Texas, where it all began
Up until a few weeks ago, I worked at a historic site in the South that included an old house and a nearby plantation. My job was to lead tours and tell guests about the people who made plantations possible: the slaves.
...one man stayed behind to talk to me. He said, "Listen, I just wanted to say that dragging all this slavery stuff up again is bringing down America."
