IOTD= image of the day

I started doing this on Happier about a month after I joined, the image is something that I use to meditate on during the day, it can be silly, beautiful or just…. whatever suits my fancy. I’m going to start posting it here too. I just think every one can use an image to focus on throughout the day- when it starts to get stressful. Not everyone knows or has a ‘happy’ place to escape to mentally for a minute. 🙂 So here’s today’s IOTD.

Calendar day; September 2, 2014

Leave a comment

Tuesday, the 2nd of September, 2014 is the 245th day in 2014 and in the 36th calendar week.
 
General Events:
 
National Day of Vietnam
September 2, 2014 in Vietnam
 
National Day (Vietnamese: Ngày Qu?c Khánh) is a national holiday in Vietnam observed on September 2, commemorating the Vietnam Declaration of Independence from France on September 2, 1945. It is the country’s National Day.[
 
The Japanese occupied Vietnam during World War II but allowed the French to remain and exert some influence. At the war’s end in August 1945, a power vacuum was created in Vietnam. Capitalizing on this, the Vi?t Minh launched the “August Revolution” across the country to seize government offices. Emperor B?o Ð?i abdicated on August 25, 1945, ending the Nguy?n Dynasty. On September 2, 1945, at Ba Ðình Square, Ho Chi Minh, leader of the communist Viet Minh organization, declared Vietnam’s independence under the new name of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (DRVN) in a speech that invoked the United States Declaration of Independence and the French Revolution’s Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen.

V-J Day
September 2, 2014 in the USA (World)
 
August 14th – Japan surrenders
 
August 15th – Surrender announced to the world
 
September 2 – Ceremony and formal signing of surrender
 
VJ Day marks the end of WWII, and the cessation of fighting against Japan. It is called “Victory In Japan Day or “Victory Over Japan Day”.
 
The confusion over three dates:
 
There is some confusion over what date is V-J Day. You can consider any (or all) of three dates as V-J Day. President Harry S. Truman caused some of this confusion……..
 
On August 14, 1945, the Japanese government cabled to the U.S. their surrender. This is the date of most modern observances.
 
On August 15, 1945, news of the surrender was announced to the world. This sparked spontaneous celebrations over the final ending of World War II.
 
On September 2, 1945, a formal surrender ceremony was held in Tokyo Bay aboard the USS Missouri. At the time, President Truman declared September 2 to be VJ Day.
 
Regardless of which day you view as VJ Day, World War II was finally over. Take a moment today to remember those who fought for this victory. It’s estimated that anywhere from 60 to 80 million people lost their lives during World War II, on both sides of the war.
 
To celebrate V-J Day, learn more about the history behind the holiday at your local library or online.

National Beheading Day
September 2, 2014 in the USA
 
WARNING: Heads will roll!
 
No one seems to know when or where this holiday got started – let alone the rather disturbing question of why – but September 2 is widely known as National Beheading Day.
 
National Beheading Day is today. Hold onto your hat. And, make certain to keep your head screwed on tight.
 
Every once in a while, we happen upon a special day that has no apparent rhyme or reasoning. We can’t imagine why someone would create this day. It defies logic. But, National Beheading Day is very prolific on the net. So, therefore, it warrants a few (very few) words.
 
Throughout history, beheadings have occurred. The list is long, including commoners and Kings. The most notable king to be beheaded was Charles I of England in 1645.
 
While this is a big day, don’t go crazy and lose your head.  In addition to protecting your neck, we suggest you spend this day reading about famous beheadings.
