And I Bet There Was A Time When There Were "Whites Only" Drinking Fountians

This weekend marked the 85th anniversary of the 19th Amendment that gave women the right to vote. 85th? It constantly amazes me how much this country has progressed/and how back-woods we were. 85 years ago? That's it? There are women alive today that at one time could not vote in the United States.

Thanks for making note of this! With the speed at which our lives move and the constant technical innovative change that we're seeing - you make a good point - we need to be mindful of the fact that it wasn't so long ago that things were vastly different. Although - for me, I need to see a lot more social change in my lifetime even to approach "ok."

What amazes me is that I have kids that have never known life without cell phones and the internet.
