  1. Mr. Locke, Great post! We are grateful for the “Friendship Nine’s”, sacrifice and courage, as pioneers in the Civil Rights movement. It was great to see them and hear their voices. They are an inspiration for others. The fight for freedom never ends, as lawmakers have fought to strip away our rights for decades.
