What a nice day outside...just the calm before the storm i would say!! We are very very thankful!! It looks like Miss Hanna the hurricane is going away from us and will only dump some much needed rain on us!! Now if she is kind with those wind gusts then i will be a happy camper!! People in our city have been wondering and wondering what she was finally going decide to do..Course she may yet change her mind...Only Hanna knows...Then of course we have IKE right behind her..Ya reckon Tina is chasing him?? smile...Nope it is Josephine and then Kyle!! Bunches this year...
The "Night of Terror" began on November 15, 1917!! These suffragists were thrown in jail and given only water from an open pail. The slop that they were fed was infested with worms. The guards in the jail beat Lucy Burns, chained her hands to the cell bar above her head and left her hanging there all night. She was bleeding!!
Alice Paul went on a hunger strike in protest!! The guards tied her to a chair, forced liquid down her throat until she vomitted!! They did this to her for several weeks.
President Woodrow Wilson tried to get a doctor to proclaim Alice Paul as crazy so he of course could just get rid of her. The doctor refused to do it!! The doctor told the men and the president that, "Courage in women is often mistaken for insanity!"
That was then and this is NOW!! Just think what those people would think now with a women running in a VICE PRESIDENTIAL spot!! MY!! We have came a long way ladies!!
This is an exciting year for our country! We are watching history being made!! Have you ever thought about that...We will be in the history books...(If there are still books one day)!! We are watching the FIRST African American man and the FIRST women that may be our president or our vice president of our great country!! WOW!! What a time we live in!
