Today is Juneteenth and Father's Day!

Two holidays occur today. It is both Juneteenth and Father's Day! To summarize the holidays, Juneteenth celebrates how some of the last enslaved people within the United States were freed in 1865, two years after the Emancipation Proclamation thanks to troops forcing slave owners in Texas to free their, “Property.” Father's Day honors dads and father figures. For those who want to learn more about Juneteenth or how to acknowledge it, Charles M. Blow has a fantastic opinion piece discussing, "How to Celebrate Juneteenth." As for how to celebrate Father's Day, ask your Dad or Father figure what you can do to help the day be special for them! We will be relaxing and taking Clarkson to play at a kid's gym/play place, so that will be nice.
