Congratulations to the Evers family

MS_Jackson_MedgarEversHouse

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.
