Lessons From Past Disasters

lessons from past disastersDisasters happen when least expected.  We are not all sitting around waiting on them to occur but rather getting on with our daily lives.  But what happens when disasters do strike?  Is there a way that we can call upon our past experience to solve a current issue?  I can answer that with a whole hardy, yes!  It is not just something we should do, it is something we need to do.  Be a gentleman and take the time to learn from past disasters so that our families can be safer.  Learn from past disasters so that the disaster wont be as bad as before.  There are many different interpretations on how the disasters could have been handled, however these are mine.  It may behoove you to make your own opinions.

What can we learn from past disasters?

    • how they happened
    • what made them worse
    • what would have helped
    • could this happen again
    • how do we protect our families from them

The History of Halloween

the history of halloweenHalloween is a holiday that is deeply rooted in traditions.  Trick or treating, carving pumpkins, and dressing up are all ancient traditions.  Traditions that you may not be familiar with.  Halloween traditions that are being celebrated today, just in a different manner.  So why do we not look back and remember what we are really celebrating?  For people like me, it is a time to watch old horror movies, drink beer, and hang out with friends.  For children, it is a time of sugar comas and running around after dark.  Why not, as a parent and a gentleman, take a moment this year and speak to your children about the ancient history of our beloved holiday.  Take a moment to educate yourself and your friends about why this is not a devil worship holiday.  More importantly, enjoy your Halloween holiday.  Eat candy, drink beer, and watch some old movies that makes you question our fashion sense back in the day.
