Juneteenth is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the emancipation of enslaved African Americans. Juneteenth marks the anniversary of the announcement of General Order No. 3 by Union Army General Gordon Granger on June 19, 1865, proclaiming freedom for enslaved people in Texas.
To all celebrating today may this always be a day of remembering and reflection on the freedom to live life and full of opportunities to make the world a better place.
Life is fluid. With that being said I believe that the interpretation of scripture and the constitution. Both documents cannot impose authority based upon ancient norms and rules. Words should be living and breathing things and given the opportunity to propose new ways of looking at things.
We cannot allow old words to prevent life and happiness from being accessible to all. Freedom and liberty must make a bigger table for many to sit down and partake.
The world would be a much safer place if that were the case. May everyone enjoy life, liberty, and happiness.
Juneteenth is an annual observance on June 19 to remember when Union soldiers enforced the Emancipation Proclamation and freed all remaining slaves in Texas on June 19, 1865. This day is an opportunity for people to celebrate freedom and equal rights in the United States.
Celebrate this day for those who were freed during a dark time history. This is also a reminder that all people should be free. Be mindful of those who lived under the oppression of slavery in the United States and elsewhere.
I believe that there will ultimately be a clash between the oppressed and those that do the oppressing. I believe that there will be a clash between those who want freedom, justice and equality for everyone and those who want to continue the systems of exploitation.
Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day, is an American holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865, announcement of the abolition of slavery in the U.S. state of Texas, and more generally the emancipation of enslaved African Americans throughout the former Confederate States of America.
Remember this time in history and realize that everyone should be free to live their lives as they wish.
