Unsung! She is unsung! She did not make the headlines of newspapers!
She was not on Good Morning America! No one will announce her name for audiences to applaud!
Sewing a dress! Making fruit salad, or hummingbird bread! Stitches on a quilt!
Classical music! Practice your scales!
It's the Little Things!
The little things that I remember!
Putting out the trash! Shoveling the snow! Putting a band-aid on my cut finger.
Opening the car door.
It's the little things!
Have you ever cried?
Tears from past years? Tears so old that they are dry, yet they are tears?
Grief! Mourning! It hurts so bad inside.
Good times! Music! Dancing!
Food. Fights. Friends. Family. Foes.
Passports! Guns! Jim Crow! Dogs! Water hoses!
19th Street Baptist Church! 30 night revival!
Unsung! Mrs. Barbara Ann Walker!
"The work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance forever. Isaiah 32:17
