On this day in 1919, Jack Roosevelt Robinson was born.

Happy birthday, Jackie. (And no, please no mention of that sickening act of destruction that took place over the last few days. I will post about that separately.)

It doesn't seem like much was said about this but they did honor him in Pasadena last week. I'm glad it's not overlooked.
Here's the link.

Thanks, Sunny! I hadn't seen that article. (I did find an error in it, though.) Smile

Pasadena should celebrate him every opportunity they get.
