Anniversaries 2002present

I took a self-design of which I made. It includes pictures of
the ravaged earth, Hiroshima, a dead horse carrying munitions, French soldiers KIA photographed in a trench during WWI, an image of Arlington Nat'l Cemetary. Framed and matted with a word perfect quote adorning the piece..."WAR IS A HUNGRY BEAST THAT DEVOURS EVERYTHING IN IT'S PATH ". I placed them aside my bible and voiced..."We pray for peace O'Lord..."

This year is a double anniversary. For the Lusi I post a work in progress Leaving The Old World, An acrylic medium painting of the Lusitania Clearing thecoast of Ireland for the west.

The other anniversary was for my father and that rememberance is more ongoing.
POSTSCRIPT: I failed to note that I also added the coffin photo in relation to Lusitania on my matted & framed piece mentioned above. It was too heartwrenching to add the children's morgue photographs...

I will post here so the Lusitania section has some life.

where has everyone gone?
My thoughts and prayers go out, today, as we must, all, remember the LUSITANIA victims, May 7, 1915.

Belated remembrance of the RMS Lusitania sinking and her victims. Also must remember that the 97th anniversary of the Empress of Ireland sinking is but a matter of days away, as well as the centenary of the launch of the all comes at once!

I'll probably watch Winsor McCay's "The Sinking of the Lusitania" on the 7th. And then, on the 8th, I'll listen to Herb Morrison's Hindenberg broadcast and wish my nephew a happy birthday. The lad's surrounded by destruction!


Same here. My big day happens to coincide with the night the Empress of Ireland and Storstad ran afoul of each other off Pointe-au-Pí¨re.

As for Lusitania, I'll think I'll kick back with a read of Eric Sauder's "The Ship and Her Record", Bailey and Ryan's book and a look at Jim and Mike's "Lest we Forget" articles here on ET.

Hell, I'll probably pull out my DVD copy of that National Geographic doc from many years back.
