    Our Fear: the Long Shadow of History Threatens Myanmar

    Our Fear: the Long Shadow of History Threatens Myanmar

    For the past year, we’ve been worried mostly about Covid-19. We still are, but of late, though, it’s news from Myanmar that alarms us. The protests continue. The deaths mount. The regime seems bent on crushing the dissenters and ruling the country with an iron fist....

    Writing this memoir (A RENDEZVOUS TO REMEMBER) about our early days has been a 3-D roller-coaster ride: breath-taking, but some of the twists and turns left us bruised and aching, like my decision to marry against my parents’ wishes.Fortunately, the winds of time sand-blasted the rough edges of that disagreement but never erased the deep love within our extended family.And now, on this Mothers Day, I look at Mom's photo and long for a good old mother-daughter talk. Sadly, the long-ago talks centered too much on “me,” not enough on Mom. I gnash my teeth now at the many questions, large and small, I never thought to ask my mom about herself, like . . .• What were your best memories from high school and college?• What are the most important things you learned growing up, and from whom?• What were your best accomplishments in your professional life?• What were your best memories about former boyfriends?• How did you finally decide that Dad was “the one”?• What did your folks say when you told them you had married Dad?• What did you learn about Dad that you didn’t know when you got married?• What was your love life like? (It’s okay. I’m a grownup now.)• What are the best adventures you and Dad had together?• And, Mom, tell me about YOUR day . . .How about you, my FB friends? What questions would YOU want to ask your mom?What questions have you asked that have yielded the best talks?--AnnPhotos: Mom at age 35; and at 15 ... See MoreSee Less

    Today is a day we can’t forget: “Double D Day,” Birmingham, Alabama.In Birmingham that year, April had been a month of Civil Rights demonstrations, marches, rallies, picketing, boycotts, sit-ins.The city had fought back, violently, and arrested hundreds of protestors, including Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK wrote his famous “Letter from Birmingham Jail” over the Easter weekend.)By May, the effort was flagging. Adult protestors were exhausted, discouraged, beaten down.Then came the Children’s Crusade: On Thursday, May 2, under Rev. James Bevel’s leadership, 1,500 black students skipped school and marched. 600 were arrested. 2,000 attended a rally that night.The next day—Friday, May 3—1,000 students marched. Birmingham firemen blasted them with high-pressure hoses. Police sicced dogs on them and beat some with Billy clubs.Over the weekend, 3,000 young people marched.On Monday, fewer than 900 of the school district’s 7,500 black students attended class. The marches continued. Police arrested 2,425, overfilling the jail. Many were bused to the state fairgrounds. Some were housed in 4-H barracks, others kept outdoors in the rain.The Children’s Crusade catapulted Birmingham into the national spotlight.These photos—and others like them—brought the savagery of segregation into full view on America’s TV screens and daily newspapers, and inspired demonstrations across the country.What a momentous spring! And what a gutsy commitment by the students of Birmingham.Check our day-by-day timeline at www.terrymarshallfiction.com/Martin-Luther-King.html ... See MoreSee Less
