5 Little Girls in an Alabama Bombing. Sept. 15,1963 @SarahCollinsRudolph



On September 15, 1963 an act of racial terrorism was enacted on the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama. 15 church members were injured. Five little girls were in the basement restroom. Four of the little girls were murdered and one survived, Sarah Collins Rudolph. bit.ly/WeAreBeads #BeadsOnAString 1st history book to recognize her. #thisisamerica #multiracial #history

A small amount of numbers, as I've read in comments on articles concerning this horror. Some comments are too heartless to mention. Has America really lost its compassion? I really don't want to discuss this issue because it would run rabid with all kinds of negativity. Sarah was 11 years old, glass was and remains embedded in her body. She eventually lost an eye, was unable to become a mother and still has health issues. What I want to say is, it's time America learns about and also remembers that one little girl, Sarah Collins Rudolph. The one who is virtually forgotten and remains ignored by her home town as the survivor of a national, world horror. The one who, along with other members of the community, deserve some sort of compensation, the same as any other citizen of America who has survived acts of terrorism.

 This feels like a second attempt at murder in my opinion. Mentally and emotionally. How devastating it must be to relive the experience over and over, to know you lost your older sister, and then to know the world you remain in is not there to comfort you. She's moved through life feeling forgotten. She testified at all three murder trials, but objects to the fact that there was never a trial for the attempted murder of her. Doug Jones, who prosecuted the last two trials, praised the significance of Sarah's testimony. But he said the statute of limitations for attempted murder had long passed by the time the state reopened the investigation in 1971. Sarah also resents that strangers benefit from her sister's death -- scholarships are given in the four girls' names -- while she says she's gotten nothing. "You'd think they'd do something for the living, but the dead get more, I'll tell you that," she says.-via CNN.com 50 years after Birmingham Church Bombing.

 When you remember the 16th Street Baptist Church Bombing on today, please go over to her face book page and give Mrs. Sarah Collins Rudolph a bit of comfort and a hug on the anniversary of her sister's death and in celebration of the life she has dedicated to keeping her memory alive and sharing the message of loving and caring for one another . Despite the fact her city seems to have forgotten her, she is getting recognition outside her state and around the U.S. Mrs. Rudolph has recently been added to the pages of America's only multiracial history book,





 Beads o a String-America's Racially Intertwined Biographical History and is honored as guest and speaker at national and state events.
