Juneteenth is of course about the emancipation of ALL the rest of the slaves that hadn't been released in January 1863, but it is also a time of coming together. Newly freed slaves began looking for family that they'd been torn apart from. They would put out ads in the paper to find them, looking to reunite with wives, husbands, mothers, father's, sons, daughter's, and siblings. If you don't celebrate anything else today, celebrate the ability to love on your family without fear of them being sold without notice, and then not being able to communicate with them. Love your kids freely and hold them close for your ancestors that
couldn't.Be blessed out here -Milli
