  • Colored Polaroid Photos pt.1

    Colored Polaroid Photos pt.1
    On February 3, 1963, Polaroid photos get a new push, color! No more black and white photos! Edwin H. Land created color photos. The photo will have to sit for a while for the color to come in, but now the world can have colored photos. Mr. Land has been working on this colored photo for fifteen years! He is calling his invention the Polacolor.

    Colored Polaroid Photos pt.2
    The world has waited and anticipated for the coming of colored photos, now they have them, at a price. Once Mr. land was able to create a colored photo, the minds of Americans opened. There were more inventors working to devise an even better photo. They realized that technology could keep improving and it certainly did!
  • Colored Polaroid Photos pt.3

    Colored Polaroid Photos pt.3
    As inventors unveiled new prospects and possibilities, the American people wanted more. As inventors and technology grew, the minds of Americans did too. I doubt that in 1963, Americans knew that they would have smartphones that could take a picture, edit it, and share it with their friends. Because that is exactly, what we have and it is crazy.
  • Colored Polaroid Photos pt.4

    Colored Polaroid Photos pt.4
    There wasn’t a premiere for the Polacolor film, but it was released in stores. It would be fascinating to be one of the first consumers of the colored film. I love Polaroid cameras, I even have one, and thanks to Edwin H. Land it has color.
  • Bombing of Birmingham Church pt.1

    Bombing of Birmingham Church pt.1
    The south of America couldn’t be more segregated in 1963, colored and white. To make matters worse, on September 15, 1963, a bomb exploded before Sunday morning services at the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama–a church with a black congregation that served as a meeting place for civil rights leaders. Four young girls were killed and many other people injured.
  • Bombing of Birmingham Church pt.2

    Bombing of Birmingham Church pt.2
    The outrage over the incident and the violence between protesters and police that followed helped draw national attention to the hard-fought, often dangerous struggle for civil rights for African Americans. Many Americans that didn’t live in the south didn’t fully grasp the tensions and hardships for colored people.
  • Bombing of Birmingham Church pt.3

    Bombing of Birmingham Church pt.3
    After the bombing, there was heartache, but the colored people united in prayer and protest. There were more civil rights activists. There were more protests. There were even more people to join the KKK. But, through national recognition, more Americans, white and colored alike, fought for civil rights for African Americans.
  • Bombing of Birmingham Church pt.4

    Bombing of Birmingham Church pt.4
    If I could have attended the event, I would have. I would have let the bomb fall, but with no casualties. I would want the bomb to fall to draw national attention to the problems and for African Americans to get their rights as a human being.

  • Grand Opening of Disney World pt.4

    Grand Opening of Disney World pt.4
    The grand opening of Disney World would be sight to behold! To be in the land of memories, is wonderful. But to be there on the opening day, would be magical. I would go on all the rides, eat ice cream, and get all of the Disney characters’ signatures. Bob Hope viewed Disney World as a place to be rejuvenated and described it as: “Ponce De Leon couldn't find the fountain of youth in Florida, so Walt Disney created it." That is a place where magical memories are made!

    Mount St. Helens Erupts pt.1
    Throughout April, scientists watched a bulge on the north side of Mount St. Helens, in Washington, grow larger and larger. Finally, on May 18, 1980, at 8:32 a.m., a sudden 5.1-magnitude earthquake and eruption rocked the mountain. The north side of the peak rippled and blasted out ash at 650 miles per hour. A cloud of ash, rocks, gas and glacial ice roared down the side of the mountain at 100 mph. The devastation was terrible.

    Fourteen miles of the Toutle River were buried up to 150 feet deep in the debris. Magma, at 1,300 degrees Fahrenheit, flowed for miles. Citizens of America now knew that Mother Nature had a mind of it’s own. People were saddened by its causes, but amazed at the works of God.

    Mount St. Helens Erupts pt.3
    Millions of trees were scorched and burned by the hot air alone. When the glacier atop the mountain melted, a massive mudslide wiped out homes and dammed up rivers throughout the area. The plume of ash belched out for nine hours; easterly winds carried it across the state and as far away as Minneapolis, Minnesota. Fifty-seven people died overall from suffocation, burns and other assorted injuries. Twenty-seven bodies were never found.

    Addition to Disney World: Epcot pt.3
    Epcot brought such success; that two more theme parks were added. Each theme park is different; Epcot premieres the Future World and the World Showcase. The Future World section has space/technology amusements. There is even a stimulator that allows you to ‘build’ a rollercoaster and ride it. In the World Showcase, there's a section for each different country. As you enter the country, you can hear the culture’s music, smell the food, and see people from the country dressed in the proper attire.

    Because of Princess Diana’s extensive outreach to the people, the princesses and queens to come try to follow her footsteps. The royal women work for the people.

    It would be difficult to be at the scene of the car crash. But, it would be honoring to attend her funeral. I can’t even imagine attending the funeral of a princess. It would be saddening, but breath-taking at the same time.
