2. I have a very close friend who named her little girl after Ruby Bridges.

Ruby is around 7, so this is not from back in the 60s.

What courage Ruby, her mother and her teacher had. Makes me cry to think of what she went through and her courage.

Also makes me sick to hear the "protecting the freedom" of people to segregate. They used that "freedom" bullshit to steer the sheeple and control them since the country was started.
