I just wanted to share the wonderful birthday card my quarantine buddy made for me. It’s a photo of us at the fabulous Cafe Du Marche on the Rue Cler during a past visit to Paris. Note the real string holding the masks. Totally made my birthday.
15 years ago at 9:02 a.m., the Arthur P Murrah Federal Building was bombed in Oklahoma City, OK. Over 600 were injured and 168 were killed (19 were children in day care). The bomber was a Gulf War vet who was sympathetic to the cult in Waco and white supremacists.
I’m sad this tragedy has marked my birthday… but it needs to be remembered with all we are going through. We are seeing the same people spreading the same lie that caused this. And we need to stop them.
The moon is down All over town The forecast is gray Now that she’s gone away The stars in the skies Fell out of her eyes They shattered when they hit the ground And now the moon is down The sun will be fine It’ll still shine all the time The sky will be blue And do what it’s supposed to do You see gravity pulls But it can’t keep you around It’ll be one long day And now the moon is down The moon is down All over town The stars in the skies Fell out of her eyes The gravity pulls But it can’t hold you down It’ll be one long day Now the moon is down It’ll be one long day Now the moon is down
