As some of you may know, every time we go and visit a place on our list, we usually leave with 2-3 new places we now have to go and see. Through our travels, we have met a lot of great people and it is because of these people that we have been able to travel across the State of New York exploring places we originally had never heard of. Somewhat of a new phenomenon for us though, is that at this point in our blog adventures, we have actually been sought out and invited to go on tours of places of worship. This is kind of weird for us because we never thought we would be in a position where someone liked what we were doing enough that they thought their place of worship could benefit from exposure on our blog. But at the time of this writing, it has even happened to us more than once! It was at the beginning of this past July that we received a comment on a random thread on our blog from a Ms. Melissa Morral, who simply asked, “Have you considered including Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School on your tour? I’d be happy to give you a tour.” Chris and I were very surprised at this and also very flattered, but because we usually book tours weeks in advance, it took us until now to actually go.
Enough is Enough
On May 1st, 2013, Benny Warr was waiting for the bus on Jefferson Ave. when police arrived to clear the block. Doing nothing wrong, he repeated he was waiting for the bus. He was then violently thrown from his wheelchair and brutalized by officers Joseph M. Ferrigno II, Anthony R. Liberatore, and Sgt.Mitchell R. Stewart II. Mr. Warr's experience is not singular. Police brutality occurs all over the city. In response, the community screams "Enough Is Enough!" Click here for more information!
