The way we were

Although February is almost over, it's Black History month,  It was my intention to post something about it, but I ran out of time.  Here's a visual reminder of one of our most darkest moments.

  1. "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
    George Santayana, The Life of Reason

    Thank you for taking the time to help us remember.

  2. We constantly need reminders of how bad it was, and especially young people need to learn about this. But I actually didn't know you had a special Black history month. Good to know!

    "Strange fruit" sang by Billie Holiday (and others)is a favourite of mine... do you know it?

  3. PS I saw such a lovely photo of what must be you and newborn Emelie among the "You might also like"-links, but when I clicked on it I came to some strange advertising sajt. Strange... Tried the other links and they work.

  5. @Rebecca: Yes we need to respect the lessons from past and learn from it. By the way Maria, I don't know that song, I will take a peek in iTunes. About the broken link: It happens that I used to have another domain, and those old posts were published under that old domain, but now I don't know how to have them viewed in this new domain. I'm bewildered. I tried republishing all of them again but didn't work.

  6. The strange fruits in the song is lynched black people, so it's a really sad one. Pity about your old posts from the other domain. Wish I could give you a tip but I have no idea what to do.
