I just found out today that I will be visiting Auschwitz, the Nazi death camp in Poland, on my birthday. I'm not sure what significance this has on the fact that it is in fact my birthday, if any... but I just thought it was an interesting way to spend your birthday. I will be traveling to Poland with a class to study the "The Christian Misuse of the First (Old) Testament and its Implications on the Holocaust". Yay for study trips! It's just going to be a very odd birthday to be at a Nazi death camp... I guess it will be one of those days that you realize how small and unimportant you are in the greater scheme of things... just weird to have that day be your birthday! Now let's see... who else was born on May 26?
Jack Kevorkian (hmmm....)
Hank Williams Jr.
Sally Ride (The astronaut)
In Australia - it is National Sorry Day - It was started in 1998 and attempts to inform of the treatment of Aborigine children in the past as well as heal some of the wounds caused.
In Poland - it is mother's day - to think that we will be there then!
In Georgia (the country, formerly of the soviet union) - it is National Day (faaaabulous)
Maybe I should have been an entertainer, lots of entertainers that are somewhat successful were also born on May 26... maybe they'll give me some money because have soooo much in common?
