GOOGLE DOODLE FOR TODAY

‘The co-founder of Google, Sergey Brin, immigrated to the U.S. when he was a small child, so the Drumpf’s immigration fiasco hit him hard.

Brin was born in Moscow, and his family of Russian Jews fled in the 1970’s.

Brin decided to protest against Trump’s ridiculous immigrant ban by placing Japanese internment camp survivor Fred Korematsu front and center on Google.’

Fred Toyosaburo Korematsu (January 30, 1919 – March 30, 2005) was an American civil rights activist who objected to the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. Shortly after the Imperial Japanese Navy launched its attack on Pearl Harbor, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066, which authorized that individuals of Japanese ancestry living on the West Coast were to be removed from their homes and forced to live in internment camps, but Korematsu instead challenged the orders and became a fugitive.

The legality of the internment order was upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States in Korematsu v. United States; this ruling has never been explicitly overturned. Korematsu’s conviction for evading internment was overturned decades later after the disclosure of new evidence challenging the necessity of the internment, evidence which had been withheld from the courts by the U.S. government during the war.

To commemorate his journey as a civil rights activist, the “Fred Korematsu Day of Civil Liberties and the Constitution” was observed for the first time on January 30, 2011, by the state of California, the first such commemoration for an Asian American in the United States.

In 2015, Virginia passed legislation to make it the second state and first commonwealth to permanently recognize each January 30 as Fred Korematsu Day.

The Fred T. Korematsu Institute was founded in 2009 to carry on Korematsu’s legacy as a civil rights advocate by educating and advocating for civil liberties for all communities.

THE RESIST SYMBOL

Unity is loud.

Symbols amplify all our voices.

Let’s channel the energy across the country:

Show the world you are a RESISTOR.

I am a Resistor

The Resistor is a historical symbol for solidarity and peaceful dissent

You might also remember using the squiggly line in this image when drawing Resistors in physics class; it is a universal standard symbol seen in circuit diagrams.

We hope that the RESIST symbol will serve as a daily reminder to be vigilant and to RESIST any attacks on democracy or the progress we have made as a society.

Feel free to adopt the symbol as your own and please help us spread the message!

NEED I EXPLAIN WHAT THIS NUMBERS ARE?

I want to think that even the younger generations know what these numbers are.

Sure hope that this nation isn’t headed down that road.

These are scary and uncertain times.

TATTOOS AND NUMBERS

THE SYSTEM OF IDENTIFYING PRISONERS AT AUSCHWITZ

During the Holocaust, concentration camp prisoners received tattoos only at one location, the Auschwitz concentration camp complex.

The Auschwitz camp complex consisted of Auschwitz I (Main Camp), Auschwitz II (Auschwitz-Birkenau), and Auschwitz III (Monowitz and the subcamps).

Incoming prisoners were assigned a camp serial number which was sewn to their prison uniforms.

Only those prisoners selected for work were issued serial numbers; those prisoners sent directly to the gas chambers were not registered and received no tattoos.

MY FAVORITE QUOTE

There was a time when I was involved in a somewhat serious disagreement with my better half.

Those are indeed rare.

When they occur, they become a lesson learned.

This was one such lesson.

We are so blessed with what we have and I don’t mean material possessions.

The bottom line is the fact that everything that we need to be happy is right where we are.

There’s no need to go outside of our personal circle and look for happiness.

We have it all in spite of the occasional bump in the road.

…. for that, we are so grateful.

Something to think about …. “Raising Children …. “!!

RAISING CHILDREN

“Greatest Love Of All”

I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be

Everybody’s searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone who fulfilled my needs
A lonely place to be
And so I learned to depend on me ….

“Speaker of The House” …. ” …the house is in disarray”!!


Speaker

~~October  10, 2015~~ 

THE HOUSE IS IN DISARRAY

The Speaker of the House is the presiding officer of the United States House of Representatives. The office was established in 1789 by Article I, Section 2 of the United States Constitution, which states in part, “The House of Representatives shall choose their Speaker…” The current Speaker is John Boehner, a Republican who represents Ohio’s 8th congressional district. On September 25, 2015, Boehner announced he will step down from his position as Speaker effective October 30, 2015.

The Constitution does not require that the Speaker be an elected House Representative, though every Speaker so far has been an elected Member of Congress.

The Speaker is second in the United States presidential line of succession, after the Vice President and ahead of the President pro tempore of the U.S. Senate.
