A Meditation In Ink: Meditation 12.7.18

A pen and ink doodle meditation in oranges and blue and a blurb about days of infamy. Dear Henry,

December 7, like September 11 is a sad day for Americans.

 What I didn't realize though, is that December 7 has, over the course of history, sort of been a crap day all around.

Within the U.S. alone, December 7th marks the day of the Civil War battle of Prarie Grove, the day Congress declared war on Germany, and, of course, the Attack on Pearl Harbor.

Worldwide, there was also a devastating earthquake (Armenia), a freak tornado in London, and the date of the infamous Nazi "Nordic Dominance" report.

However, a couple of positive things also happened.  Apollo 17 successfully launched on what would be the last lunar mission and Galileo made it to Jupiter.

All in all, though, December 8th appears to be a better day.
