“Where there is love, there is life.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Time to party like it’s 1929!
Ah, the era of seedy glamour — alcohol-filled bars, dimly-lit rooms, and girls showing a little more knee than was previously acceptable. The Prohibition is well-known to all Americans, mostly as the prime example that you can take the people out of the party, but you can’t take the party out of the people. While these days it’s completely fine to wear a miniskirt and drink to your hearts content, there’s something strangely fascinating and sexy about bars that reflect the old Prohibition speakeasy culture. These 10 bars reflect the iconic 1920s speakeasy scene and are just a secretive, hidden, and alluring as the lounges that existed almost a century ago.

Where were you on September 11th, 2001?
A question that every American can answer at the drop of a hat. I was only 10, but I remember it like it was yesterday. We listened to the radio in my fifth grade glass after the first tower was struck. Tears streamed down everyone’s face—especially my teacher’s, who knew the true magnitude of the situation—as we listened to the reporter say that the second tower had been hit.
I’ll never forget that day for a multitude of reasons, but most importantly, because it’s a day we must always remember. It reminds us of mourn and respect the innocent lives that were lost, to be prepared to face adversaries, and to realize that, while there will always be evil in this world, it must be faced with hope, courage, and love.
