I'm a white son of Selma, Alabama. Born less than five years after Bloody Sunday. I never thought I would see this in my lifetime. I hoped it would become a remote possibility before I died. Now it's a reality. It will take a little while for this to sink in.
For my old good buddy Willie Flowers and one of the most influential people I ever met (and am sorry I've lost touch with) Allen Carlson, one of these tears is for you!
