Almost everyone is giving the Obama speech writing crew
big kudos for the iconic linkage of “Senaca Falls, Selma, and Stonewall”.
My contrary observation; I think they blew it.
Far better would have been to evoke
this quartet of symbolic events known by their location;
“Concord, “Senaca Falls, Selma, and Stonewall”.
They missed a chance to embrace the entire panorama
of revolutionary roots by including, usurping the first
and most traditional event in American insurgent folklore.
