“Four Little Girls” of Birmingham Remembered

They were murdered simply because of the color of their skin, but they haven’t been forgotten.

It was 50 years ago this year that four young girls were killed by a bomb planted in their Sunday school by the Klu Klux Klan.

According to msnbc.com:

The girls were killed the morning of Sept. 15, 1963, in a bombing that also injured 22 other churchgoers. It wasn’t until 2000 that the FBI announced the attack had been carried out by the Ku Klux Klan and arrested the remaining suspects, who were later convicted.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives approved a bill that will posthumously honor the girls with the Congressional Gold Medal.

If the bill is approved by the House and Senate and signed by the president, the medal will be awarded 50 years to the day of the bombing, this September 15th.

May we never forget the horror that hatred and intolerance produces and keep the memory of those innocent little girls in our hearts.
