So needless to say, if you were following the news or my millions of blog posts this weekend, you knew that it was quite a crazy weekend.
But today marks the anniversary date to several historical events and it would be awful not to mention them.
First, as many know, today marks the 48th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” speech and the monumental March on Washington.
This day also brings us memories of the tragic death of young boy named Emmett Till. (July 25, 1941 – August 28, 1955) He was brutally murdered during some of America’s darkest days. So for him, may his soul and story rest in peace but never be forgotten.
And, the anniversaries don’t get any happier but this is also the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. Now the hurricane typically hit for a series of days but the day that Katrina hit its peak was today back in 2005. We all remember the pictures of hurricane aftermath in New Orleans and its victims and even though, it’s been 6 years, I feel like there’s still so much help that could be given to Katrina victims.
I’m sure there are more events and anniversaries that occurred on this day but those three stuck out to me and bring us a remember of history.
So always remember and never forget.
Until next time,
