August 26, 1920 Women’s Rights To Vote, 19th Amendment, went into effect after many years of campaigning by Women’s Sufferage groups, especially Alice Paul, Lucy Burns, Katherine Morey, and many others who fought and suffered so valiantly for this.
So thankful to all those women who gave of their time, effort and sufferings to win us women today the right to vote!
Let’s not let them down! Let’s not let their efforts be wasted or done in vain. Let’s be sure to vote!!
While I appreciate and salute all who served as essentials during COVID-19, I specifically want to dedicate this poem to my grand-daughter Vivian, age 21, who is a care-giver at a nursing home.
Vivian faithfully worked many long and extra shifts to take care of the residents during quarantine.
And also, want to dedicate this poem to my other grand-daughter’s boyfriend, Michael, age 20, who is an auto maintenance worker, earning minimum wage. Micheal faithfully worked many long days and extra hours with no extra raise in wages during this time of pandemic.
Thanks to both of these hard working young people and many others I don’t know.
Let’s remember it was people like this that kept our country going during the pandemic.
Andersons View Point in Tillamok County Oregon is a beautiful scenic roadside stop that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. This place memorializes Billy Anderson who was a dedicated surveyor for Tillamok County for many years. His surveyor’s transit tripod still stands on the banks overlooking the sea.
It is a great roadside stop with fantastic views of the ocean.
