Okay, so maybe you already knew that. Any calendar would tell you. As would your iPhone. And the headline really wasn't that exciting. Nor, perhaps, was the story it led to.
Don't you just love how headlines can pique your interest? Or do crafty headlines tend to irritate you? (not that mine was overly crafty)
I've actually followed a headline that told about the five foods, vegetables I believe, you should never eat or something like that. It led me to a video that I hoped would expound on this nutritional mystery, but after more minutes than I care admit I watched, the mystery remained a mystery. Of course they wanted to sell me something. I didn't buy it.
And now when I see the headline pop up on Facebook, I'm tempted to leave a nasty message, because they don't live up to the headline they shared. But I don't. I'm much too nice.
I've found, too often, that the headline is used as a way to deceive you. To get you to look. Don't you love how the news is always Breaking? It's like crying wolf. If a breaking event were to happen no one would believe it.
I hate to admit it, but I've been reeled in a few times. And sometimes the headline is spot on and I pass it over because I don't care to be bothered or it doesn't interest me.
How 'bout you? Can you think of some headlines that drew you in? Or left you irritated because the headline didn't match the story?
Have you ever wondered how the headline for the story of your might look? And just what kind of story would someone write about your life?
Today is June 17, 2014. This an important day in history… well, my history for sure, so I thought I would pull up some stimulating (mind numbing) information and we could all take a look at some tidbits from our past. Wonder what the headlines for these looked like back when.
1856 -- The elephants went on parade and had a grand old party. Well, the 1st national Republican Party convention opened in Philadelphia.
1877 -- The US Calvary faces defeat. No it wasn't Custer's last stand. The Nez Perce defeat the US Cavalry at White Bird Canyon in the Idaho Territory.
1885 -- A tall French woman whose been carrying a torch for America, comes for a visit.
1894 -- 1st US poliomyelitis epidemic breaks out, Rutland, Vermont.
1898 -- Grass skirts become fashionable…
1933 -- Mob Massacre… Not in Chicago but Kansas City: 1 FBI agent, 4 cops & 1 gangster killed.
1943 -- New York welcomes a Songwriter, and the Copacabana is a hit 34 years later. Can you name that songwriter?
1960 -- A Church without a steeple is born, but he gets his Wings a few years later. Can you name that Church?
1963 -- This actor does the movie Sabrina and Audrey is nowhere in sight. His older brother in the movie is a Ford. Name this actor?
See I told you I had some awesome information to share. Don't roll your eyes...
And I saved the best for last.
Bored, Adam prepares to divorce, Grace, his wife of seven years. Then Grace is killed in a terrorist attack, leaving him to raise their three-year-old twins, Faith and Hope. The girls have no idea the world's gone crazy, they just want their mother home. Adam isn't sure how to tell them she's gone. How can he, when he's not sure what really happened? When he doesn't want to believe it himself.
Grace's family and Adam's brother come to help, but Adam hesitates to open up to them. Their care only magnifies his loss. His guilt. If Grace would come home, he'd be a better husband. Father. Anything to stop the guilt ravaging his soul. But the more he uncovers about Grace, and her love, the more broken he becomes. Adam is a man with no heart. A man with no faith. A man with no God. Then there was grace.
