Morning Open Thread is an open discussion forum for human interest news of the day.
From Great Big Story: “Around the same time Rosa Parks famously protested segregation by refusing to give up her bus seat to a white passenger, a teenager named Claudette Colvin went to jail in Montgomery, Ala., for doing the exact same thing. This is her story.”
This is a daily open thread. There are several hosts, each host being responsible for picking a “theme of the day” and starting the discussion. However, there is no hard and fast rule about staying on topic, especially if you have a personal story burning a hole in your pocket trying to escape.
Pictures and videos are welcome in the comments. If photos are used, please be sure you own the copyright. We would rather see your personal photos anyway, rather than random stuff copied from the internet. Our only request is that if you use pictures or videos, take pity on those who don’t have broadband, and don’t post more than two or three in a single comment.
Morning Open Thread will be set to post at (or about) 6:30 AM Eastern Daylight Time. For those on international or military times, that is 1030 Zulu Time.
This is Morning Open Thread. Grab your cup, pull up a chair, sit a spell and share what’s on your mind today.
