Memorial prompts – tragedies and comedies
- Today is Emancipation Day in Washington, DC; it’s the the 150th anniversary of the abolition of slavery in the District of Columbia (1862).
- 5th anniversary of the 2007 Virginia Tech University shootings that took 32 lives.
- It’s also the birth anniversary of Charlie Chaplin (1889-1975), Wilbur Wright (1867-1912).
How did your loved one deal with tragedies in their life? We all have them – those things that make life almost unbearable. What did your loved one do to make life more bearable?
Do thoughts of Charlie Chaplin, the great silent movie star, or the flights of Wilbur Wright, of the famous Wright brothers, bring any memories to your mind?
Share what you remember, and invite others to add their memories too. If you have not started a memorial blog or memory book, today is the perfect day to start.
