I have voted in every presidential election since I was 18 because I feel that it is a dishonor to my forebears who risked and, sometimes gave, their lives for my right to do so.

This leaf fell right on my head as I was walking home.

I had to be on set all day, so I made a point of voting early in the morning.  While I was in line, a man drove up and blasted the entirety of Otis Redding’s “A Change is Gonna Come” and then drove off.  Good God, y’all, we have a Black President.

On my way home a couple of Saturdays ago, I ran into a parade!  Luckily I had my camera with me.

It was a beautiful day for a parade.  The warm sum beamed down and it was still cool in the shade.
