Four Little Girls Remembered

A week after the horrific bombing at the Boston Marathon finish line, we remember the victims of a domestic terrorist bombing of 50 years ago: Addie Mae Collins, 14, Denise McNair, 11, Carole Robertson, 14, and Cynthia Wesley, 14. These girls would have been in their 60s now. This week, they were awarded a Congressional Gold Medal. The measure was sponsored Rep. Terri Sewell, D-Ala. and Rep. Spencer Bachus, R-Ala.

 

Finally, a glimmer of hope for bipartisanship.
