What gets you excited?

america

Happy Friday! Today the calendar reads (not really, it’s an inanimate object after all) Friday, September 7th. On this date in history many, many things occurred! For instance, the city of Boston, Massachusetts was founded 388 years ago (1630). This is legit because Columbus quasi-discovered America in 1492 so it should be pretty accurate. According to the web, Interpol was formed in Vienna in 1923…kind of important. In 1979, the Entertain and Sports Programming Network (ESPN) makes its debut. Mark Whiten, of the St Louis Cardinals hits 4 homeruns and has 12 RBI’s in the second game of a double header in 1993. Sadly in 2011 a plane crashes in Russia killing 43 people aboard including the entire roster of the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl Kontinental Hockey League team.

Suicide Awareness

The year was 1986 and I was a 14 year old freshman in high school when I first tried to end my life…

Back in 1986 there was no Twitter, there was no Facebook and there was no Instagram or the plethora of other social media outlets to draw a ground swell of attention to social issues and topical relevant trending events. Back then 1 out of 1000 of the ‘happenings’ were reported and that was just typically on the nightly news. Oftentimes serious events or noteworthy occurrences in other states or worldwide took weeks to be reported and then it would be in periodical magazines or in the newspapers. Believe it or not, there were school shootings decades ago that happened…but there was no instant broadcast vehicle to relay the information around the globe. For those that have only existed in this instant gratification world of constantly evolving and morphing new age technologies, these concepts must be unfathomable.

Sometimes I cannot function well enough to put together two to eight thousand words like I would like to…so on those days I grab a bunch of random pictures and let them speak for me. Today’s pictures depict, well, you tell me.
