This past weekend I was in Colorado Springs, CO speaking at a Juneteenth Celebration. Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day, is a holiday in the United States honoring African American heritage by commemorating the announcement of the abolition of slavery in the U.S. State of Texas in 1865. (June 19th)
I had a great time and wish to thank Father Bill and the Bishop of Colorado Springs Diocese for inviting me to be a part of the celebration.
It’s funny how different news outlets will cover the same event yet report different events. I guess some reporters don’t report exactly what they hear but rather take an opportunity to editorialize.
