 Juneteenth is a celebration that marks the end of slavery in the United States.  It stems from the arrival of Union troops in Galveston, TX.  It is right and proper that we celebrate the freedom of a great portion of the population of the United States.  Freedom should be celebrated in all its glory, regardless of the population that was affected.  Freedom affects us all.  

It is appropriate for us to celebrate the freedom of people everywhere.  In a few short weeks, we will celebrate the 4th of July, the day that our nation was founded and that we declared our freedom as a people.

Let Freedom Ring.

Then there is the 13th Amendment that ended slavery in Delaware and Kentucky.

Agreed. Still, it would be nice if the celebrants recognized the sacrifice of the soldiers, black and white who made that day possible.

100% agreement. Freedom is a good thing and everyone should have the ability to enjoy it without someone else telling them they can't.
