Can’t wait to see you all next year

Published 7:31am Sunday, March 9, 2014

We’ve all seen it at its biggest. We’ve all seen it at its best. We have experienced it in good weather and we have experienced in bad weather. But, we’re starting to think we haven’t seen anything yet.

Today, we will join thousands of others in remembering the events of Bloody Sunday — March 7, 1965 — and celebrate the changes it sparked in our country.

We will join thousands of others in walking over the Edmund Pettus Bridge in the culminating event of the annual Bridge Crossing Jubilee.

But while it marks the end of this year’s Jubilee, that walk will start the clock on preparations for next year’s Jubilee, where we will commemorate the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday.

Already, vendors are marking their calendars and we have no doubt hotel reservations have already been made. Organizational meetings have been held and invitations to key dignitaries have likely already been sent.

If you thought it’s been big before, just wait.
