Reed tells News 25 this is a day to remember the past, but also celebrate the future. “In our generation, we have risen to a level where we are not taking over. We are shoulder to shoulder with a lot of self-respect and a lot of confidence. Our children, our grandchildren have risen to places. We are not so much begging for jobs anymore. We are making our own way.”
