Inasmuch as Monday was Martin Luther King day, I harked back to 1968, the year of Dr. King’s assassination.
I was a young impressionable man then and I recall it being Anubis horribus!
A significant number of horrible events come to mind, as pictured.
Is there a lesson to be learned from enduring 1968? Yes and No. Subsequent history teaches us that worse events were ahead, but the Human survival mechanism is still at play.
If there is a lesson in all of this, I suppose we are compelled to take each day as it comes and cherish the good and endure the bad.
Today is the first day of the rest of our lives!
