    Dad's 1st Letter Home January 14, 1945

    in History

    THIS IS CAROLE HUJBER SANEK BRINGING YOU THE NEARNESS OF YOU EPISODE 00001 ON THE VERY ANNIVERSARY OF D-DAY 72 YEARS AGO. 
    There are people alive today who remember D-Day well.
    I am honored to bring you this show, my first show on the anniversary of D-Day.
    In this episode I talk a little about my parent's background, I talk about them falling in love, getting married and then Dad was sent off to fight in Europe.
    There will be many more stories coming, I have already been approached by veteran's who want to tell their family stories.  If you want to do that, my email address is at the bottom of this description.
    My father was enrolled in college to be an architect like my mother's father, and join the firm.  It was 1941 and Pearl Harbor changed all his dreams.
    I read his first letter home from a "secret" place that was very cold and snowy (I think it might have been Colorado).  He wrote beautiful eloquent love letters and I can see his hand holding the fountain pen.  His penmanship was regal.  His words better than mine, and he writes with dignity and extreme adoration for my mother.
    Please enjoy this short episode there will be more.   Meet my dad, Willy, and my mom, June and please if you have a story to tell or want to be interviewed on this show, you can reach me at carolelynnesanek@gmail.com
    THIS SHOW IS DEDICATED TO KEEPING THIS PERIOD IN HISTORY ALIVE FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS – THE GREATEST GENERATION.

    AUTHOR HORACE BUTLER PRESENTS HIS BOOK TITLED WHEN ROCKS CRY OUT

    in History

    I made a promise that I would unveil something today, but my mind won't let go of the image of the five foot six inch African man, with the thick 'fro,with the filet tied around it-like the one Jimi Hendrix wore-walking into that 22,000year-old African-built city,going into that temple,turning over those tables,and money rolling everywhere on the floor.They killed him, after that.
    They said he was just arrogant.They said he was a fool.For saying that he heard God speak to him.Heard God tell him things that women had forgotten.That men had forgotten.He knew the meanings buried in the writings called Genesis. He knew the meanings of the other writings,too. They kept testing him in public.They kept walking away in a bind. They killed him,after that.I met an old man by that river, there.He gave me the old map of the land of the corn.I saw Jerico on it, while I stood there. Capernaum,I saw. And Antioch, too.I saw the little village called Nazareth,there.Along a river,on that map,at New Alene,there.Nazareth, with its ridges, with its twisting hills.And then they flooded New Alene,after that.I said, they flooded New Orleans after that.You know they flooded New Orleans,after that.

    Yet,still,I owe you Christ's Nazaret.To show you the dirt he played in, even after that.Because he gave his very all, after that.They didn't call it old Jebusi, after that.Nor did they Jerusalem,"Thebes," after that.They hid it as "Kush-co,"after that. They recalled Egypt's "Peru,"after that.Jeru became Peru.After that.And now you know the true Jerusalem.After all.

    in History

    The Enigmantic Sinclairs - The Definitive Guide to the Sinclairs in Scotland, by Gerald Sinclair and Rondo B B Me is now available and I'm delighted by the detailed research and the ease with which it reads.
    Gerry and Rondo join me here for part 1 of mutiple interviews. (It's simply too much to cover in this 2 hour interview).
    The book is in three parts:     A. The Kings of Scotland     B. The de Morville Family     C. The Sinclairs
    Our show won't follow that order, but rather will discuss a wide range of new information Rondo and Gerry uncovered:
    The affinity group of the de Morville family The Kings of Scotland and how the Sinclair family rose to power and carefully managed their political dealings The Aberdeen connection and its importance The Fenton connection

About History

As Carl Sagan said, "You have to know the past to understand the present." History has shaped our nation's character, and our collective strength is measured in how we came together during our most challenging moments: the Civil War, World War I, Prohibition, World War II, the Dust Bowl, McCarthyism, the Cold War, the Challenger disaster, Operation Desert Storm, 9/11 and countless struggles before and since. But history also contains triumphs, from ending slavery to the moon landing to the fall of the Berlin Wall to Mars rover Curiosity. Join in discussion on these and more with historians, collectors, authors, professors and conspiracy theorists alike. Our hosts also show much support for our troops and military families. In fact, technology has played a big part in bringing soldiers closer to home, as they text, email and Skype from the front, and our “talk to the troops” episodes are always inspiring.
