First Stop- Little Rock, Arkansas
On September 21 we started a 22-day trip through about 8 Midwest States. Are there that many Midwest states? I don't know, but it was a lot of driving and we needed gas on our first day.
There was no gas here. It was just for show. I climbed all over the pumps, though.
And I looked across the street at Little Rock Central High where 57 years ago, 9 brave students fought against segregation. And I wondered about all the phone calls that were made on the pay phone in this gas station over the weeks when the press and guardsmen and police took over this tiny filing station.
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
