It’s Nevada Day, too

Most of my childhood memories are from Nevada.  I grew up in Reno and moved away when I was an 18 year old new recruit for the US Army.  One of the things I remember most about Halloween in Nevada was that it wasn’t just Halloween.  A fact that was drilled into every student in a Nevada school is that October 31st also means Nevada Day – the day the state was admitted to the union.  There was always a parade (it was held this last Saturday, according to the news I’ve read from the state) and various celebrations to partake in throughout the day.  I never attended a parade, something I regret now – but hey, I guess Mom didn’t care to partake so I didn’t either.  If  I’m ever out there for Nevada Day in the future though, you can bet I’ll be a part.

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first." Mark Twain

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on:
