Antique Georgian mourning ring - with my grandpa's name and my father-in-law's birth day and month - caught my eye.
This is very cool. It is a locket that holds hair of a dead loved one. I have never seen a ring like this. You can see the hair on the back side of the ring. RARE Georgian 15ct Gold Swivel Enamel Hair Locket Ring | eBay

September 11, 2001: A day we'll never forget On a brilliant, sunny Tuesday morning, Sept. 11, 2001, the United States shifted from a nation vaguely concerned about its enemies around the world to a nation ready to declare war on terrorists and on the countries that house and support them. 8:46 a.m. EDT: American Airlines Flight 11 slams into the north tower of the World Trade Center Tuesday, touching off an inferno that forces dozens of people to leap to certain death.

On 2 July 1942, most of the children of Lidice, a small village in what was then Czechoslovakia, were handed over to the Łódź Gestapo office. Those 82 children were then transported to the extermination camp at Chełmno 70 kilometers away. There they were gassed to death. This remarkable sculpture by Marie Uchytilová commemorates them.

Holy Tattoos: Why Memorial Tattoos Might Be Holy Symbols. There’s a reason why so many choose to symbolize loss with a tattoo. When it comes to death, many of us try to forget, so that we can forget the pain … only to remember years later, that what we fought so hard to move past and “forget” is something we should really remember.

“You Working on Memorial Day?” The guy who drew the Grim Reaper in a black robe that drapes over the Reaper’s thin frame wasn’t a funeral director. We know better. If the Reaper indeed wears a robe, it certainly doesn’t hang loosely around his body. Nor does he carry a fairly innocuous scythe. Click link to read more
