Dear Mom in Heaven
Today you would turn 101 if you’d lived. I miss your touch, smile, laughter, and encouragement, yet so glad you do not see our dysfunctional times.
I want to begin when you were born. In 1919, several events occurred that shaped your world and your life.
· World War I Paris Peace Conference opened.
· Theodore Roosevelt, our 26th President, was laid to rest.
· The predecessor to the Nazi party formed.
· Congress ratified the 18th amendment authorizing Prohibition.
