@Rider_Marshall haha the day our lives flashed before our eyes...
@OhhAsh nice! You should check it out! Especially if they perform "freedom songs" because they are really good.
@OhhAsh touche. I have seen it and you are right - some parents should not have been allowed to have children!
@OhhAsh of course! It's the weirdest name ever ha
I'm naming my kid Pippa.
@trymainelee yeah i got back last night after missing my connection. I dont think ive ever been more excited to sleep in my own bed.
@trymainelee Trymaine, it was great meeting you! Hope you have a safe trip back home to NYC!
I don't think I've ever appreciated home more. Can't wait to be in Arkansas and see what we can accomplish together! #pbsbus
NOLA knows how to give a legit welcoming. Thank you! #pbsbus twitpic.com/4ym7uu

@nevasue it was such a pleasure! Thank you for being so welcoming and i hope to visit again one day!
@OhhAsh oh it was more than stifling. But hey, if the real #freedomriders could do it, so can I :)

@larafabian you are too kind! Thanks for spreading the word. Hope to have some meaningful posts up on pbs #freedomriders soon!
Eating chinese with the original #freedomriders the night before the ride. Just like they did in 1961! Fortune? "You would be a good lawyer"
Today's lesson: We must seek and expose the truth to achieve social justice. #pbsbus #freedom riders
@OhhAsh hmm I don't think so?
"My colleagues had you in mind. We did not know you but we loved you." - #freedomrider Diane Nash
I love these people. I love this bus. I love the freedom riders. I love the Newseum. I love life. #pbsbus
@Rider_Marshall you will love it! They say nyc is the best city in the world but it's a lie. DC all the way!
Just completed my first incredibly awkward, TSA xray screening. #dchereicome
@OhhAsh That sounds so chic!
I have to be up in 3 hours for my flight to DC to #getonthebus. Instead of sleeping I'm eating skittles and twittering. Tweeting?
Glad to see Freedom Riders is "trending" although I don't really know what that means. Sounds good though! #freedomriders #pbsamex
Don't forget to check out the May 4th episode of @Oprah to see five awesome Student Freedom Riders and hear more about the @FreedomRidePBS
