My oldest granddaughter is engaged to be married.

I was 14 years old and an eighth-grade student when the events unfolded in Selma, Ala., 50 years ago. When the news was reported, featuring films of Selma, I was horrified.

I don’t recall that my parents had any commentary on the news reports so I was left to draw my own conclusions.
