Day Two by Dovedot-Mississippi Galore

Today began gloriously with a wonderful breakfast alongside Justin Allegri to the groaning sounds of Justin Perry laying in bed because he had been puking all through the night.

Our first stop of the day was the Lorraine Motel, the site of Dr. King’s assasination. Standing nearly below the balcony where his body lay, covered in blood, with Rev. Kyles standing over him, I had to stop and just simply glance and observe. No pictures. No videos. No talk. Just witness.

After that, I took and collected many pictures (inlcuding some with Q-Bear for Miss. Pavlos’s first grade class) at the Lorraine Motel and we left Tennessee for Mississippi.

We went on a driving excursion to visit the sites involving Emmett Till: funeral home, courtyard, and the grocery store where he allegedly whistled at a white woman. Each site had its own history and was heart wrenching.

After a long day with no lunch, we finally made it to Olive Garden at about 9:30 p.m. and we STUFFED ourselves with breadsticks and tasty food.

Night and morning.
