There aren't many times in history where a library can put a whole city on pause... unless that library is a Presidential library. When a Presidential libarary opens, it is a big deal - a really big deal. Presidential libraries are there to honor a President's legacy. Their main function is to preserve and make available the papers, records, collections and other historical materials from Presidents. The first Presidential library was built for Herbert Hoover. Every president since then has had a library built for him.
P is for puck... as in hockey puck. P is also for plan... as in planning ahead and protecting yourself.
Sometimes, we all need a simple vacation. Sometimes we need to drive as far as we cazn. It's oddly freeing to just drive. The freedom of the open road - no traffic, no agenda. Our couriers Dallas get to experience some of this freedom, especially during out of town delivery services like Dallas to Austin delivery services, Dallas to Houston delivery services and Dallas to Oklahoma City delivery services. I say experience "some" of this freedom because our couriers obviously have a very specific agenda: to make the delivery on time, safely and securely. Since our driving always has an agenda, this blog post is as much for our couriers as it is for our readers.
11 years ago this very morning, thousands of Americans lost their lives to a tragic, hateful, merciless act. They were at working, trying to fly home, going on vacation, getting ready for the day. And hijackers who wanted nothing but murder robbed them of their lives. And today is the day we honor and remember them. We must never forget. And today, our team at Dallas Courier intends to help all of our readers never forget.
Four planes. 19 hijackers. Thousands of lives. Two World Trade Center towers demolished. 1 side of the Pentagon attacked. One plane brought down by brave souls on board Flight 93. Here is what we shall never forget:
Dallas is cropping up all over the national news sources. I'm taking guesses on what we are making headlines for. Our barbecue, beautiful skyline with the new Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, Chihuly at the Dallas Arboretum, the upcoming State Fair and the ever-famous fried goodies, incredible high school football, hot summers - any of these? Unfortunately, we aren't in the news for any of the above exciting topics. We are making headlines because of West Nile Virus.
It only happens once every four years. It is the accumulation of lifetimes of determination, persistance and passion. It is a time when the world comes together. It is about being the best in something. It is about standing on the podium with a gold medal around your neck, your country's anthem playing loudly. It is rare, special, inspiring.
Consequently, it is the time of year that Dallas Courier's blog suddenly becomes single-minded: The Olympics. If you're not an Olympic fan, I apologize because starting July 27, you are likely to be inundated with all things London 2012.
a. A nonspatial continuum in which events occur in apparently irreversible succession from the past through the present to the future.
b. An interval separating two points on this continuum; a duration: a long time since the last war; passed the time reading.
c. A number, as of years, days, or minutes, representing such an interval: ran the course in a time just under four minutes.
d. A similar number representing a specific point on this continuum, reckoned in hours and minutes: checked her watch and recorded the time, 6:17 a.m.
e. A system by which such intervals are measured or such numbers are reckoned: solar time.
Kinsler, Andrus, Hamilton, Beltre, Young, Napoli, Moreland, Murphy, Gentry, Snyder, Gonzalez. Now that is quite the batting line-up.
