For the last two years, A Night of Remembrance has been been taped because of the pandemic. There will be special tributes for Gen. Colin Powell, Gold Star families and women who served in WWII.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Three hundred twenty-nine years later, Elizabeth Johnson cleared her name. The Massachusetts woman was convicted in 1693 during the moral panic known as the Salem Witch Trials. She was never pardoned for witchcraft until an eighth-grade class at North Andover Middle School researched what it would take to clear her name. Lawmakers tacked a pardon onto an unrelated bill. Justice delayed is justice denied, but better than no justice at all. It's MORNING EDITION.
