MIAGD: Gerald R. Ford remembered

I’m permitting myself to incorporate my utmost personal feelings.

This video echos my feelings about some of the possibilities for so many citizens of our nation, especially our young girls.

I first heard these words uttered by newly sworn in president, Gerald R Ford, following the resignation of President Richard Nixon and referencing the Watergate scandal. I was nine years old and on vacation with my family in Myrtle Beach.

I can still remember hearing those words, “our long national nightmare is over.”

The phrase has hovered in my mind since August 1974. Today, it is ringing deeply within me.

Make it a great day.
