What pages are these people following on Facebook?

You know, kiddos, Current Events is not just a part of civics class.  It’s what you need to follow in order to be informed about the world around us.  And that includes more than just which celebrities’ nude photos were hacked.

And really the significant American history events for this week in September include:

  • Signing of the U.S. Constitution (September 17, 1787)
  • Battle of Fort McHenry (September 13-14, 1814)
  • Writing of the Star Spangled Banner (published September 17, 1814)
  • Battle of Antietam (September 17, 1862)
  • Islamic terrorists fly airplanes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon (September 11, 2001)

There’s undoubtedly more, but those are some highlights.  (And these college kids were born when the last one happened.)

Yet another indictment on the American school system.  Remember, folks, THIS is America’s future.
