This is our latest family picture for the year 2007. November 9 is a strange date actually. As I scanned through the list of events in the link … I was looking for more redemptive days. Here’s what I picked out. I will still tell Ewan about the realities of the ugliness and pain of history but our lives need to be defined by what’s more redemptive than what’s destructive.
- 1921 – Albert Einstein is awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for his work with the photoelectric effect.
- 1985 – Garry Kasparov 22, of the Soviet Union becomes the youngest World Chess Champion by beating Anatoly Karpov, also of the Soviet Union.
