Today marks the day of the 16th Street Baptist Church Bombing in Birmingham Alabama. The bombing took place on September 15, 1963. The 4 little girls who’s names have become well known from this incident were: Addie Mae Collins, 14; Denise McNair, 11; Carole Robertson, 14; and Cynthia Wesley; 14
The 4 girls were posthumously awarded the Congressional Gold Medal by Congress on the 50th Anniversary of the event last year.
Please take a moment to remember this day to reflect on these young ladies who lost their lives, and their family and friends; as it is a moment in History that should never be forgotten.
