400 Year Anniversary

400 Year Anniversary

H.R. 1242 - Why We Celebrate and Why We Are 400 Years Stronger: 400 years of slavery, 400 year anniversary, 400-year celebration. I celebrate because I now carry the baton of those that came before me. Those that overcame, fought, struggled, persevered. I am inspired as we all should be, let us do everything with excellence, choose to get up from every failure and run this race of life to win.
