Two Days of Rememberance ~ Current Events Wrap Up

Ok, it’s Thursday, and you know what that means… It’s time for The Current Events Wrap Up meme, hosted by the amazing Julie Arduini at her The Surrendered Scribe blog. The Current Events Wrap Up meme is the vision God gave Julie for discussing what is going on in the world, nation and even our own lives. There is so much happening these days and it would be amazing to have a team of conservative commentators discussing their thoughts. Please go and check out Julie’s blog, and if you like current events or news, think about joining in and/or spreading the word!


This week held two days of some importance to some people. Tuesday, April 21st, was Holocaust Remembrance Day. Did you hear all the news stories about it in the media? No? Neither did I. I bet you heard an abundance of news stories about the other one though. Wednesday, April 22nd, was Earth Day. Did you hear something about that? Yep, me too.

It is staggering to me, that one of the darkest periods in the history of all humanity could either be forgotten, dismissed, or even removed from history. And yes, in England the schools and history books are removing any mention of the Holocaust because it is offensive to Muslims. How long until that happens here in America?

On the other hand, the indoctrination into the cult of environmentalism is still going strong. Global warming remains the number one threat to all mankind – despite the fact that numerous scientists call the theories junk science and have actual evidence to the contrary. But don’t let that get out, we don’t want to stop the hysteria.

And then there’s this, for linking these two topics together. In 2007 Al Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize for his fantasy film An Inconvenient Truth. In doing so, he beat out an actual hero, Irena Sendler, a Polish Roman Catholic nurse and social worker who smuggled thousands of Jewish children to safety from the Warsaw Ghetto. Her story has recently been turned into a Hallmark Movie, The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler. (For more on this story, click here.)


And on a personal note, I was incredibly honored that Seed Thoughts has been included in a list of the Top 100 Blogs on Christian Families. I am continually amazed at the goodness and blessing of God. I remain shocked that He would use me to speak His Word and touch others through the words that I write. I encourage you to click on the link and check out some of the other wonderful blogs!

I'm just as dumbfounded as you, I saw and heard nothing of Holocaust Rememberance Day but you got it, everything was about Earth Day. I'm all for being good stewards of the life and planet we've been given but still, I think the survivors and families affected by the Holocaust must be remembered. And like you said, instead we work to eliminate the event.

I stand by: those who will bless Israel will be blessed and those who curse Israel will be cursed...

Congrats on the top 100 blog, you totally deserve it!

"It is staggering to me, that one of the darkest periods in the history of all humanity could either be forgotten, dismissed, or even removed from history." --You have started here to change that :)

I love your current events. Thank you, Tracy ;)

Congrats on being in the top 100!! You do a great job here-- I know I am not over as much as I should be and I feel badly. I have not been watching the news now for a few months because it is too depressing with out financial situation. My husband and I are trying to focus on only good good news until our lives straighten out again.

Hello, just found you through the CWO site. I don't watch much news or read much these recent days but did hear about Earth Day. I am inspired to read the book about Nonna as well.
Always blessed,
