Anyway, there was sewing chaos everywhere and it made me sad and crazy and then we found this COMPUTER armoire on a crazy good President’s Day sale. I’m pleased that a random holiday sells furniture to those in need of same. All of the cluttery badness seems much less when contained like this. If I were not already wed I would totally propose to my sewing cabinet. I love it so.
The state of being remembered
Something serving to celebrate
the memory of a person or event;
The length of time over which one’s memory extends.
I’ve put this up "private" three times now
and deleted it each time.
If it offends
it’s due to my poor communication skills.
There are 10 observed Federal holidays in the United States.
Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day
& honored Union soldiers that died during the American Civil War.
Go to any battlefield or Arlington
& count the monuments erected by survivors of that war
"testing whether that nation, or any nation
so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure"
to get an idea of the gravity with which
it was remembered.
In 1896, some 32 years after the war ended
William McKinley who served under fire at Antietam
was elected President and although military service
was not a campaign issue,
it doubtless earned him respect.
Veterans Day was originally called Armistice Day
in the United States & Remembrance Day
in other countries. The armistice which brought an end
to hostilities for The War to End All War took effect
at eleven o’clock in the morning on the 11th day of the 11th month.
Even today in some countries people observe 2 minutes of silence
at 11:00 in the morning as a sign of respect
for the roughly eight million who died in the war.
In Israel on the 27th of Nisan since the early 1960s,
the sound of a siren on Yom Hashoah stops traffic & pedestrians
throughout the State of Israel for two minutes of silent devotion.
The siren blows at sundown & once again at 11:00 A.M.
All radio & television programs during this day
are connected with the Jewish destiny in World War II,
including personal interviews with survivors.
Even the musical programs are adapted
to the atmosphere of Yom Hashoah.
There is no public entertainment on Yom Hashoah,
as theaters, cinemas, pubs,
and other public venues are closed throughout Israel.
Can you imagine
if we took our holidays in this country
that seriously again?
Instead of going to the debut of the big summer blockbuster movies
or car, furniture & appliance sales,
barbecuing & beer drinking at the beach
how would it be
if we had a national day of remembrance
& reflection on September 11th?
If we all took our holidays seriously
like many take September 11th
would we change?
