Well, today is my 26th birthday! Wow, I can't believe I have already surpassed the quarter of a century mark! (I think someone should buy me this cake and have it delivered to my work!)
Here are some facts about September 14th:
In 1814 Francis Scott Key wrote the Star Spangled Banner
1901 President McKinley died of gunshot wounds (succeeded by Theodore Roosevelt)
In 1948 the ground-breaking for the United Nations in NYC.
September 14th was the first birthday drawn for the US draft in the Vietnam War.
In 1983 I was born (and I share that date with Amy Winehouse... man couldn't I share it with someone better than that!)
In 1994 the MLB season is canceled due to strike.
