Congratulations to the Evers family


Congratulations to the Evers family, Mississippi and the nation on the signing of the bill establishing the Medgar and Myrlie Evers home  which makes the house a national historic landmark.  The designation is a timely and perhaps, prophetic reminder.  In   our collective efforts to address  the myriad number of divisive  issue of today’s society,  we too often neglect to remember those  heroes and sheroes , who shed blood and tears and made the ultimate sacrifice to pave the way for all Mississippians to continue the fight against adversity. The act to establish the house as a national monument  is a reminder that   in the search for common ground , for the common good of the state and nation, the legacy of Medgar and Myrlie Evers is a cornerstone towards achieving that goal.
