May 3 Keep Calm
From Wikipedia: Keep Calm and Carry On was a propaganda poster produced by the British government in 1939 during the beginning of World War II, but never used. It was rediscovered in 2000 and has been re-issued by a number of private sector companies, and used as the decorative theme for a range of other products.
The poster was initially produced by the Ministry of Information in 1939 during the beginning of World War II, and was intended as a “last case scenario” to be used only should the Nazissucceed in invading Britain via Operation Sea Lion, in order to stiffen resolve. Two-and-a-half million copies were printed, although the poster was distributed only in limited numbers. The designer of the poster is not known.
A wonderful sentiment that was shared with me by a friend over this past weekend in words and spirit right at the perfect time.
Today I am thankful for
- those little bits of calm and new sparks of light.
- hot coffee, pancakes and laughter on a Sunday morning.
- the roof over our heads keeping us dry (so far) and sheltered from this pounding rain.
For what are you thankful?
