In this reference to the Past...think of Marie Antoinette’s jewelry heading to auction. The treasure, sneaked out of France after Marie’s arrest and execution, remained in the family until now. San Diego U-T, 10/14/18
Think of relics from the Titanic purchased by hedge funds for $19.5 million. Jewelry, clothing and dishes, retrieved piece by piece from Atlantic Ocean depths, recalls the terrifying final two hours about the “unsinkable” ship. San Diego U-T, 10/14/18
Think of the anniversary of the San Diego Union, 150 years after it first appeared Saturday, October 10, 1888 as a four-page paper. Among other purposes, William Jefferson Gatewood, Editor, wanted the Union’s to be a spokesman for Christianity as a curative for society’s ills.
A picture of the Union new brick building in 1870 “New Town” San Diego showed a city of wooden buildings and outhouses scattered over wide acres, with plenty of open ground from Fourth Avenue and Broadway west and southwest. San Diego U-T, 10/10/18
This writer has always liked the past. As a fifth grader in Central Grade School, Lincoln, Illinois, he became aware of his love of history. That zeal continues to this day.
Read the past. Learn from the past. Retain the habits and truth of the past. Avoid in the present the mistakes and sins of the past. Live in the present valuing the lessons past history teaches. An open-mind to the past will invariably draw us nearer to God, ruler of all past, present and future: the God who Is, and who Was and is to Come, the Almighty Revelation 1:8.
