Holocaust Memorial Day

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

May we never forget.

Happy Anniversary, Mr. President. Here's a Republican Senator!

Barack Obama's first year in office has been a lot of construction work and little actual results. I'm struggling to think of an actual thing he's achieved.

The goodwill that he's initially had is evaporating fast, in many ways he's more hawkish than Bush and people are getting impatient. As demonstrated in Massachusetts (yes, spelt it right first time!), although other factors really came into play, where it was more Democrats staying at home that led to Brown's victory.

Healthcare is in serious trouble and if Obama loses that, he's in serious trouble.

I refer you to my post last year.

The devastation in Haiti is simply mind-boggling. It's going to be years before the infrastructure will be rebuilt to even pre-quake standard.

Aid is starting to arrive and hopefully, with the grace of God, it will save lives.

God didn't cause this quake- why would he? - but he is helping through the hands of many people giving their money and time.

My thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by a disaster still unfolding.

Miep Gies dies

Jams says it all.

One of the many who risked their lives to protect Jews from the Nazis.

Rest in Peace.
