NAACP and draft cards

This post should have been yesterday. Yesterday, Feb 12, is the anniversary of the founding of the NAACP 100 years ago, and the first time Americans burned their draft cards (in 1967) to protest peacetime draft. It also was the anniversary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln but it would be hard in the U.S. not to notice that fact.

Thanks once again to the fine folks at Nebraskans for Peace for their "Cat Lovers against the Bomb," (CLAB to them) from which I got these good facts.

Reminds me that everything happens some time, so creates an anniversary. And we use anniversaries to remember things. Besides the anniversaries above: on this day in the past, people lived and loved. Some good things happened, and lots of bad things happened.

Perhaps if we all do good today, we will have happier memories to look back on.

peace, y'all
