Two steps forward, one step back

Mary Lambert
Merrick, NY

I lived through the Civil Rights Movement. I once walked out of a store in SDouth Bend IN and was confronted with a full scale KKK march. I remember the riots of 1968–I lived in a mixed race neighborhood and we often sat on ourporch and watched the fires buring a few blocks away. A lot of good has happened since then. Barack Obama is our President; I idin’t think I’d see that in my lifetime. But at the same time our Supreme Court has gutted the voting rights act. I fear that we are destined to gothrough the struggle again.
