I had a lady in last week trying to write a 70th birthday speach for a friend.
She was trying to find positive world news events for August 1942.
It's damm hard.
Apart from "bambi" being released in the UK (was this good?)
Got me thinking.
All the good things that happened on "bad dates" ( dont) are buried under the weight of bad news.
There must be a tremendously positive thing that happened somewhere in the world that counter balances Every single catastrophe date.
Just try to find some reasonably big good news event for 1 sept 1939.
