Across the country we recognize important, famous and influential individuals who have shaped our society. We have renamed streets and highways to recognize their contributions to our communities and country. There are streets named for Mark Hamill, Rihanna, Bob Hope, Beyonce, Betty White and Hugh Hefner. Why do we limit this recognition to secular figures and celebrities?
It is time for John the Baptist to join the ranks of Martin Luther King Jr, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln by having prominent streets renamed in his honor. Join us in petitioning our representatives and civic leaders and requesting streets be renamed for John the Baptist.
