The plans are today and tomorrow at Mom's getting home late Thursday night and then Friday morning up early to go start and finish my Christmas shopping.
I just like reunion stories and I like them even more during the holidays:
Not really a reunion story but certainly kind of an amazing one:
Now on to a story that just makes me shake my head:
Ursula LeGuin authored yesterday's quote. "We can learn from history how past generations thought and acted, how they responded to the demands of their time and how they solved their problems. We can learn by analogy, not by example, for our circumstances will always be different than theirs were. The main thing history can teach us is that human actions have consequences and that certain choices, once made, cannot be undone. They foreclose the possibility of making other choices and thus they determine future events", was authored by a woman born in 1920
who fledin 1939 with her family to escape from the Nazis. As a young mother, she learned English and then became a writer, including the screenplay for Black Like Me. She returned to school in 1959, graduating from Columbia University with a Ph.D. in history in 1966. Her dissertation on the Grimke sisters is an early women's history classic. As a teacher, mentor, and director of the first graduate degree program in women's history, her work has been integral in the field. The idea for Women's History Week -- which evolved into Women's History Month -- began at an institute that was offered through her work at Sarah Lawrence College. Did you ever think about BLACK WOMEN IN WHITE AMERCA: A Documentary History? If so you can tell me who authored today's quote.
