Fascinating but true!


She looked at the mantle as she kept singing “Wish I knew you when you were young…so Friday night, holy ghost, take me to your next level.

She was contemplative, but ok. She had been collecting these now for over a decade. She had worked hard these years to be good, honest and just there for everyone. But so many were wretched.
She passed her finger across them all. It was time. She picked up the deep maroon vessel and drank it quickly. She gulped and smiled.
She then grabbed the floral yellowvessel, whispered goodbye, and headed to the back yard. She then buried it next to many others wishing it well.
She returned and made some coffee and headed into work.

Coast Guard Academy to host symposium on Holocaust

The U.S. Coast Guard Academy is hosting students from other service academies this weekend for a discussion of the Holocaust.

The academy in New London says the goal of the Holocaust Studies Symposium on Saturday is to promote awareness about genocide and the ethical dilemmas faced by armed forces officers.
Cadets and midshipmen from the U.S. Air Force Academy, the U.S. Naval Academy and the Coast Guard academy will lead discussion groups at the event.

Some of the students participating in the event received internships to study at the Auschwitz Jewish Center in Poland.
