THAUMAS – The Memory

 

 

25th May: Memorial Day

MD

Memorial Day (previously, but now seldom, called Decoration Day) is a federal holiday in the United States for honoring and mourning the military personnel who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. The holiday is now observed on the last Monday of May, having been observed on May 30 from 1868 to 1970.

Many people visit cemeteries and memorials on Memorial Day to honor and mourn those who died while serving in the U.S. Military. Many volunteers place an American flag on graves of military personnel in national cemeteries.

Memorial Day is also considered the unofficial start of summer in the United States,while Labor Day, the first Monday of September, marks the unofficial start of autumn.

Two other days celebrate those who have served or are serving in the U.S. military: Veterans Day, which honors those who have served in the United States Armed Forces,and Armed Forces Day, an unofficial U.S. holiday (earlier in May) for honoring those currently serving in the armed forces.

Many schools have already closed due to the coronavirus

The period of May is perhaps one of the most beautiful, or even most decisive, months. When I was a student, the month of May was the decisive month for fixing school questions, classwork and insufficiencies. Those who had arranged everything could already enjoy the luxury of going on vacation in late May or at the very beginning of June, thus anticipating the summer holidays.

This year, due to the coronavirus, the Italian schools are already closed, and those who will have to face the exams will have to do it with all possible precautions and with the marks of the first quarter. Even in most European states, schools have remained closed, because it is one of the places where the virus is transmitted, especially because children are totally asymptomatic. The Italian government has already set some guidelines to face the new school year, which will begin in September. According to the current situation, all students will be obliged to wear a mask.
But further restrictions may apply if epidemiological evidence worsens in the coming days and months. Italy has almost reopened everything, but in many cities nightlife and night parties are resumed, which are currently prohibited. Hopefully the exponential contagion will not resume.

TV deludes us to keep us company

tv

Often watching TV is almost inevitable, because it is the only means of distraction during lunch or dinner, and above all it is a company for those who live only at home. In recent years, some channels have introduced the so-called TV marathons (siticom or talkshow) which I assume are a purely American invention. But how well does TV really do us? I believe that TV does well when it distracts us in the right measure from our daily thoughts.

The internet is also a distraction. But it is different. For those who are thirsty for knowledge, the web is a form of addiction because one can always find something that enriches one’s knowledge. For those who are thirsty for trash, TV is the greatest danger, because nowadays almost all transmissions are transformed into trash.

♫ DRAKE – Toosie Slide

 

Lyric

Black leather gloves, no sequins
Buckles on the jacket, it’s Alyx shit
Nike crossbody, got a piece in it
Got a dance, but it’s really on some street shit

Got so many opps, I be mistakin’ opps for other opps
Got so many people that I love out of troubled spots
Other than the family I got, it’s either you or me
That’s just how I think, it’s either you or me

Two or three of us about to creep where they stayin’
Black leather gloves, no sequins

It go, right foot up, left foot slide
Left foot up, right foot slide
Basically, I’m sayin’ either way, we ’bout to slide

♫ AVA MAX – King & Queens

 

LYRIC

If all of the kings had their queens on the throne
We would pop champagne and raise a toast
To all of the queens who are fighting alone
Baby, you’re not dancin’ on your own
Can’t live without me, you wanna’ but you can’t, no, no, no
Think it’s funny, but honey, can’t run this show on your own
I can feel my body shake, there’s only so much I can take
I’ll show you how a real queen behaves, oh
No damsel in distress, don’t need to save me
Once I start breathin’ fire, you can’t tame me
And you might think I’m weak without a sword
But if I had one, it’d be bigger than yours
If all of the kings had their queens on the throne
We would pop champagne and raise a toast
To all of the queens who are fighting alone
Baby, you’re not dancin’ on your own
Disobey me, then baby, it’s off with your head
Gonna change it and make it a world you won’t forget
No damsel in distress, don’t need to save me
Once I start breathin’ fire, you can’t tame me
And you might think I’m weak but that is so wrong
But I’m stronger than I ever was before
If all of the kings had their queens on the throne
We would pop champagne and raise a toast
To all of the queens who are fighting alone
Baby, you’re not dancin’ on your own
In chess, the king can move one space at a time
But queens are free to go wherever they like
You get too close, you’ll get a royalty high
So breathe it in to feel the love
If all of the kings had their queens on the throne
We would pop champagne and raise a toast
To all of the queens who are fighting alone
Baby, you’re not dancin’ on your own
