The forecasts had failed. But what entity could have warned of … Continue reading Untitled!

While assigning importance to the days of the year, we honour the occurrences of the past, remembering just how this day might have passed for another person, in another place, possibly at a wildly different time. Stories of times gone by, to commemorate history; but what of the past if we don’t learn from it and better ourselves.April 20th unfortunately has a lamentable history recorded. Tracing back earliest to 1889, when Adolph Hitler was born in Austria; a being who needs no introduction or explanation, Hitler himself was a teeny tiny baby then, far from the young man poised with … Continue reading Today In History!
