A Visit to Boston

I started writing my previous blog post with a completely different intention. Thus the need for two blog posts in one day. Wow. I'm really impressing myself.

So, aside from yesterday's birthday escapades, Blake and I drove into Boston for Free2Walk and a cousin-visit.

Free2Walk is an initiative with Not For Sale, an organization that I have been involved with (minimally) for a few years now. Not For Sale campaigns to raise awareness and end the global slave trade with support from various sources - from students to government officials. You can check out their website here. Free2Walk is one branch of Not For Sale that raises funds and informs the public. Blake and I were tour guides, leading groups around Boston to reveal how past slavery relates to modern day slavery, what abolitionists are doing to put an end to the injustice, and what others can do to help.


After the walk, we had lunch with my wonderful cousin, Lee, who is in his first year at Emerson. I'm pleased to report that his dorm room is clean, his roommate is nice, and he seems to be enjoying his classes. We're so proud of you, and we're so glad you're only 20 minutes away!

  1. Hey! I like that picture. I'm so glad you stopped by to see Lee and reported back about it. I was hoping you three would have a chance to visit.
