As we approach Juneteenth, I am filled with a deep sense of pride and reflection. This day, which commemorates the end of slavery in the United States, is a powerful reminder of our journey towards freedom and equality. Juneteenth is not just a celebration of the past but a call to action for our future—a future where justice, unity, and community thrive.

Let us come together to honor the resilience and contributions of African Americans throughout history and today. May we continue to educate, celebrate, and inspire each other, ensuring that the spirit of Juneteenth lives on in our hearts and actions. Happy Juneteenth to all!

Together we will!
