Sound Off Sunday

Sound Off Sunday

Sound Off Sunday for this week starts with the 20th Anniversary of the Million Man March.  I remember participating in the first march, a young women inspired to be a part of a movement. I drove with two friends from Chicago to DC to be a part of that historic moment and it is shocking to see that 20 years later, while there has been some progress, we still have a long way to go.  I am proud that the movement has not dissolved especially in this time and space where people need to be continually reminded that #BlackLivesMatter.

Today is the Chicago Marathon sponsored by Bank of America.  Thousands of runners make there way through the city across over 20 neighborhoods.  I happen to live a half block away from a part of the marathon route and it I can sit on my balcony and watch the runners make their way through this part of their journey.  I want to wish of the runners success in completing this annual marathon.
