We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.


Did You Know . . .?

Lemons contain more sugar than strawberries.



On this day in 1883, the volcanic island of Krakatoa near Indonesia erupted, killing thousands in one of the worst geologic disasters of modern times. At noon, the volcano sent an ash cloud 20 miles into the air and tremors triggered several tsunamis. This turned out to be just a small indication, however, of what would follow the next day. For four-and-a-half hours beginning at 5:30 a.m. on August 27, there were four major and incredibly powerful eruptions. The last of these made the loudest sound ever recorded on the planet. It could be heard as far away as central Australia and the island of Rodrigues, 3,000 miles from Krakatoa. The air waves created by the eruption were detected at points all over the earth. At least 35,000 people died, though exact numbers were impossible to determine.
