20 April Anniversary Notes

Like on April 15, there some pretty rotten memories on that date that happened in the past. For instance, it was Adolf Hitler's birthday and he was born on April 20, 1889. We all know him as a Nazi leader and later became Chancellor and President of Germany in 1934. He wanted Germany a greater country with the "Aryan" race ruling the country. Of course, he wasn't blonde haired or blue eyed himself, so he couldn't talk! He persecuted Jews, Communists, Homosexuals, gypsies, etc. because he thought they were responsible for the Treaty of Versailles in 1919 during the Weimar Republic years. He was a mad man, who went mad with power. So, he started invading countries and Josef Goebbels made propaganda posters about how great Germany was and how bad the Jewish were - very, very tough times. The sad thing about that date was Hitler being born, and later became a wicked, vile, horrible person.

Another sad event that took place is the 12th anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre. There were two killers who attended the school named Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold who stormed into the school and opened fire with their guns and weapons and the facility results ended up with 12 students and a teacher killed. About an hour after the massacre started, they turned the guns on themselves with a total of 15 people dead.

It was a horrific event that occurred as those two teenagers were regarded as unpopular kids at school - or one of the "outcast" people. They were bullied by jocks and sports guys. They never had girlfriends and were isolated from the popular kids at the school. In my opinion, if that didn't happen - there probably wouldn't be a killing spree at the school. It wasn't the first time that they committed a crime, they were caught red handed in 1998 for breaking into a van and stealing equipments. They were sentenced to community service, while Eric was to control his anger and take anger management classes.

Anyways, these are sad events, and let's see what there is on the brighter side. I discovered that George Takei was born on that date in 1937 - and became a successful Star Trek actor.
