Newsboys' Strike: 120th Anniversary - Day 7

Oh my gosh, you guys. I can't believe I actually found the pictures of myself dressed like a newsy! Just look at my "don't mess with me" expression. haha! (Don't mind the oval. I'm protecting my sibling's privacy.) 😊

I have to confess something. As a teen I watched the movie Newsies at least 50 times. Maybe more. I had it on VHS! Ooooh! I had the piano music and loved playing Santa Fe and Seize the Day. But it went much farther than that. When I finally got a nanny job in my dream location (near NYC on Long Island - of course!), after a couple months, I'd call home and talk with a New York accent. Oh my gosh. (Hand smack to the head!) Why my mother never said a word I don't know. She's such a sweet mom! haha!

So, yes, I own the movie now - on DVD. Have I ever watched it? Nope! Why, you ask? Because I still have the stinkin' movie memorized! haha! I may just have to dust it off to watch my with kids though. Being that it's the 120th anniversary of the real deal and all. 


Here are the articles for Thursday, July 27, 1899. While yesterday had the high of the huge newsboys meeting at Irving Hall, today's articles hit a real low with the suspicion of the thing that all strikers loathe - a sell out.
