Clarksville, TN – The final day of the 2012 Rivers and Spires Festival on Saturday opened with unseasonably cooler weather to the point of being really chilly. Warm coats, hats, and/or gloves were the order of the day.

Seldom does one have the opportunity to witness history in the making.
As we marched through the streets of Washington, D.C., our nation’s capitol, you could feel the tensions of excitement in the spirit of the marchers. There were participants of all ages, nationalities, ethnicities, and social germane. Each brought their story, and contributed openly to the most important march for freedom in the 21st Century.

An appeal for unhindered citizenship, the ability for their children to not be left behind as they prepare themselves to become productive citizens.
