An entire day in one spot! We don’t have to pack or unpack, but that doesn’t mean we get to sleep in. Although we have an opportunity for a walking/driving tour of Jackson, I’m beat by this afternoon and I choose to take a nap rather than getting on the bus again. The most important place the others visited was Medgar Evers’ home. I’m afraid my mind was saturated before I got to today’s speakers. I need some time to process all that we have learned.
Finding a title for this section is difficult. I was looking something catchy like “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.” But at the end of the trip, I realize that this bus is exactly what I prayed for in 1965 – a psalm to diversity. We are black, white, Chinese, married, and single.
