Those are all interesting facts, Dorie.  I find it so difficult to believe it has been so long since Princess Diana's death.

Oh, what an interesting list of September historical events, Dorie! Thank you for keeping history alive as so many are doing their best to snuff it out these days.

Hi Debe Maxwell, CRS : Exactly my thoughts! So many things are not be taught about our history and how we evolved. It's really disheartening to see our past shuffled under the carpet. That how we learned to do better!

We really need to make a concerted effort to keep history alive. I can't imagine how many 'issues' are going to come back to bite us in the future as a result of the recent burial history. So sad!
