Memorial prompts – laughter, baseball, and the Titanic
I realized today I was calling these by the wrong name, they should be called memorial prompts instead of journal prompts! Memorials are for remembering others; journals are for your own memories. Though I hope some of you decide to use these as journal prompts as well – by wishing you knew more about what your loved one thought about some of these items, you may realize how important it is for you to write your own journal!
Here are todays prompts, what do you think of about your loved one when you read the following:
- International Moment of Laughter
- Day Pan-American Day
Today in history:
- In 1828, Noah Webster published his American Dictionary of the English Language.
- In 1865, President Abraham Lincoln was shot at Ford’s Theatre, Washington, DC, and died the next day.
- In 1910, President William Howard Taft began a sports tradition by throwing out the first baseball of the season at an American League game between Washington and Philadelphia (Washington won 3-0).
- 100 years ago, in 1912, the luxury liner Titanic struck an iceberg just before midnight. It sank hours later on Apr 15.
If you have not started a memorial blog or memory book, today is the perfect day to start.
Our prayers go out to all those in the Midwest who are in the path of the storms that will be coming today. We pray for your safety.
