Guy Fawkes

Remember, remember the fifth of November,
The gunpowder, treason, and plot,
I know of no reason
Why gunpowder treason,
Should ever be forgot.

I do appreciate Guy Fawkes day, a day full of fireworks and burnt effigies. I plan on celebrating it myself this evening. The British government, shaken from an attempt on Parliament, has used this story to inspire loyalty and patriotism through fire and explosions. Brilliant.

It is an important idea however, to recall those gigantic disasters that blow our own worlds apart and change our lives forever. Let us learn from our mistakes...
