It is interesting, at least to me, to pick out a date in the past and look up what all happened on that day. OK, so what date should I start with. How about the day something very significant occurred in my life. Let me see, I guess that would be the day I was born. Then I started to wonder if any body important, besides me (grin), was born on that date. Wow, the Internet had a huge list! Some I had heard of and some I had not. There were five among the many that I immediately recognized. They are:
Yep, we were all born on Feb. 14, 1943. Since I am such an important guy, I don't know why my name wasn't listed there.(grin) I also wondered what made the headlines that day. It seems the major news headlines were all about the war. The Soviets recapture their city of Rostov from the Germans. Then there was a dark side. The American troops experienced the worst defeat of the entire war, the battle at Kasserine Pass. Over a thousand American troops were killed and hundreds taken prisoner at the hands of the German General Erwin Rommel! The world was lucky that Germany didn't have more generals like Rommel.
Well, even though that wasn't a good day in the history of the war for the U.S., it was great day for my parents who had been wanting a baby for many years. I guess I was worth waiting for (grin). Now, why don't you all search the Internet and see what all happened the day you where born? Whatever you do, make sure you have a great day, you hear?
