!936, I think every thing was hand made and hand painted. Kids learned to read
with the Bible. Loosing her Dad when there was no other help but your own two
hands. The Question; What Can I Do? Started by the age of 8. They must of had
some real creative and talented people. Time, for the better and worse changed
1936: The world was on the verge of a terrible war, a war precipitated by
bigotry and hate. The U.S. eventually stood against the threat but had to be
dragged into the war to do so and in the midst of this foreign threat the U.S.
had 2nd class citizens fight and die for this great nation. Not because they
thought that they would be treated better but because they had hope, because of
the Constitution, their children might. Some will look back to that era with
warm thoughts of an America of hand made goods, peoples adherence to the bible
and a life that seemed so wonderful. During this holiday season people should
remember that, that America never existed for so many and still does not exist
today. Some 77 years and 6 wars later whatever your belief system is please
realize there is still much work to be done to eliminate the hate and bigotry
that destroys so many lives.
Thank you for sharing your memories of that Christmas. I was born in 1939 and
times were still tough then. I remember some of those Christmas's with such
fond memories also. Your mom was one tough lady for sure. That is the way I
remember my parents. Merry Christmas to you.
Re: "During this holiday season people should remember that, that America
never existed for so many and still does not exist today."That's liberal newspeak for, "America is an irretrievably bad,
racist, classist, speciesist, homophobic place, that deserves everything bad we
can inflict or blame on her."Real people hope that, during this
holiday season we look to one another. Come together and share. Look past what
we don't have, and be grateful to God and each other for what we DO have --
the greatest, most caring, most free, most beautiful Nation that has ever
existed. And make new best-Christmas memories for generations to come.I know, I know, we'll have to ignore the constant bleating of liberal
naysayers to do so. But hey, it's only one day a year. They'll get by,
wallowing in their deranged, self-imposed misery without us.Merry
@procuradorfiscal: That people have been treated horribly in this country
because they were/are in the minority is not liberal newspeak as you call it. It
is a historical fact. That you choose not to acknowledge this fact is a great
example of why there is still much work to do. Thank you for volunteering it and
a happy holiday season to you and yours.
Re: "That people have been treated horribly in this country because they
were/are in the minority is not liberal newspeak . . . ."Whenever a liberal suggests he's not engaging in liberal newspeak, you
can rest assured he engaging in liberal newspeak.Merry Christmas to
@procuradorfiscal: It is your choice. You will eventually be held accountable.
