Before Title IX and many social movements to allow girls into sports and other activities, there was Girl Scouts. I stumbled on GS founder’s Juliette Gordon Low’s birth place in Savannah and had to pay tribute to this woman who had a part in my life as a Girl Scout.  I still have the handbook and sash and learned the importance of community from scouting.

A few blocks away is the statute of Academy Award winner and music lyricist Johnny Mercer. I’m sure you can sing the words to his most famous song, Moon River.
