Today, June 19, is the holiday, Juneteenth. This celebrates the abolition of slavery and in Texas it is a legal holiday. Thirty other states recognize the holiday, although they do not require closing of state offices as Texas does.
It is a day of jubilation. How about a good old- fashioned picnic in the park? A few fireworks and a band would be in order, too!
