What Happened? Stories From the Past

Most “On This Day” articles are a list of birth dates, death anniversaries, and/or one sentence descriptions of events. Instead, I select one topic for the day and expound on it. I then add quotations at the end of each essay to either illustrate the subject matter or give a voice to the historical person.

Each day of the year holds a variety of possible topics. I choose subjects ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous, from horrifying to redemptive, and representing the global community while spanning recorded history. Some of the essays deal with topics of far-reaching consequences; some are stories of the “I didn’t know that” variety. All of them are entertaining and enlightening snippets of the larger, grander human experience.

    A new blog from a SSLF colleague. This is an excellent concept, pithy, readable and informative. Well done, KUTGW

    I have at least a year’s worth of these LOL
    The topics cover the world! I’ve learned so much and really do enjoy writing them. I hope you can get some enjoyment from reading them.

    If you learn anything, that’s just icing on the cake.

    Thanks Deb. I have at least a year’s worth to put up here. I’m polishing them each day before I add them, but … I can promise 365 🙂

    Well, actually, I have one for February 29, too.
