A penniless mother hides her face in shame after putting her children up for sale, Chicago, 1948. We complain about the things we don't have, but think of how destitute you'd have to be to "sell" your children. Not place for adoption but sell. Absolutely heart wrenching.

1913 - After parcel post service was introduced in 1913, at least two children were sent by the service. With stamps attached to their clothing, the children rode with railway and city carriers to their destination. The Postmaster General quickly issued a regulation forbidding the sending of children in the mail after hearing of those examples.

Kenyan Footprint: 1.5M yrs. old
The oldest footprint ever found, Ileret, Kenya, is from homo erectus and is 1.5 million years old. by Matthew Bennett/Bournemouth University
Footprints uncovered in Kenya show that as early as 1.5 million years ago an ancestral species, almost certainly Homo erectus
.Oldest Footprint Ever Found. This fossil footprint found near Ileret, Kenya, is 1.5 million years old.
Scientists digging in a Kenyan desert have found what they believe to be the oldest humanlike footprints. Several individuals laid them down 1.5 million years ago in what was a muddy track.
Oldest footprint: Oldest Human footprints found in Kenya
The oldest footprint ever found, Kenya, one million five hundred thousand years old. The discovery also helps round out the picture of a cooling and drying episode in Africa that compelled tree-dwelling human ancestors to venture into the open landscape for food. The big toes of chimpanzees, by contrast, splay outward, which is useful for grasping branches. They were found embedded in what was once muddy soil among tracks of ancient birds, lions, antelopes, and other critters.
There are a number of fossils that just don't make geological or historical sense. A fossil of a human handprint, for example, was found in limestone estimated to be 110 million years old. What appears to be a fossilized human finger found in the Canadian Arctic also dates back 100 to 110 million years ago. And what appears to be the fossil of a human footprint, possibly wearing a sandal, was found near Delta, Utah in a shale deposit estimated to be 300 million to 600 million years old.

Plague doctor approaches possible plague victim. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, some doctors wore a beak-like mask which was filled with aromatic herbs. The masks were designed to protect them from the stench of the dead and dying since noxious or putrid air (also called a miasma) was considered to be the cause of infection. Being a plague doctor was unpleasant, dangerous and difficult. Their chances of survival in times of a plague epidemic were slim.

Government's first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives. -Ronald Reagan. America means Freedom 1st & only country to be designed as a FREE Nation .... If you don't love freedom leave go anywhere else you're free to leave .
Sometimes, the government gets caught in the idea that they have to control it's peoples' lives in order to have the perfect society everyone wants. The truth is we are not perfect. The only way to have a "perfect" society is to protect our own people by first giving them freedom.

Can you imagine? Standing on the side of the road, homeless, car-less, with your two young children? :( Forced by the drought of 1936 to abandon their farm, they set out with their children to drive to California. Picking cotton in Arizona for a day or two at a time gave them enough for food and gas to continue. On this day they were within a day's travel of their destination, Bakersfield. Their car had broken down en route and was abandoned."

Thoughts of Slavery from Harriet Tubman.... #WordsOfTruth #WordsToInspire #BlackIsBeautiful #BlackStrength #BlackPride
Harriet Tubman (born Araminta Harriet Ross; 1820 – March 10, 1913-in DORCHESTER COUNTY, MD!) was an abolitionist, humanitarian, & Union spy during the American Civil War. After escaping from slavery, into which she was born, she made 13 missions to rescue more than 70 slaves using the network of antislavery activists and safe houses known as the Underground Railroad. She later helped John Brown recruit men for his raid on Harpers Ferry, and in the post-war era, struggled for women's suffrage.
Harriet Tubman- Wow.. What a quote!
