One of the many rewards of Blogging…
Some of you may remember the blog entry that I had back in June of 2008 entitled “The ‘Other’ Tea Party”. It was about the time that JFK ran for the US Senate in 1952 and his mother, Rose, hosted a slew of tea parties in the Boston area to promote him.
I was studying for a Journalism degree at BU then and our class got a blanket invitation to attend. It was considered quite a coup to be invited so I was thrilled.
Just recently I had a nice email from a lady named Sara who is an intern at the John F. Kennedy Historic Site in Brookline, MA. where he was born. She had come across my blog in her research and wanted permission to quote from it. She said that they are “currently working on a special event and that the quote would be placed within a small photo exhibit that will accompany the event.”
JFK Birthplace, 83 Beals St, Brookline, Massachusetts.
Now, I realize that this is not a big deal, but it does help to reinforce that parts of my past do merit being written about and remembered. I feel pretty sure that you bloggers out there know what I mean. It’s not an EGO thing. It’s knowing that our words are not falling on deaf ears and that they just may open up memories for others.
