The 4th of July 2016

American Independence Day

Many people head out early to prepare for fun and celebrations, highlighted with the Macy's fireworks extravaganza here in NYC. Enjoy your day ... Google News

Saturday, Elie Weisel died here in the city. Sunday, many celebrated his life while grieving his death. Elie was a Romanian-born American Jewish writer, professor, political activist, Nobel Laureate and Holocaust survivor who wondered about the concept of peace and fought for it his entire life. He was the author of 57 books, written mostly in French and English, including Night, a work based on his experiences as a prisoner in the Auschwitz and Buchenwald concentration camps. To me the saddest part of his programming was not just his childhood but the fact that he spent his life reliving his holocaust experience over and over and over. Google news

The city remains on high alert based on ongoing global terrorist threats and attacks. Sunday in Central Park, an 18 year old boy was severely injured in an explosion. Members of the New York Police Department bomb squad are investigating the cause of the explosion and are not calling it terrorism at this time/point. Time is a merely point in a larger algorithmic equation.

I spent Sunday in New Jersey with family and friends ... high alert on bridges and tolls in both directions. I did a reading for my daughter Zsia's friend Laurie about business opportunities in today's world as she want to change her job. Also, I read my grandson Michael, 18, off to Boston College in September. Michael is a business major ... the future of finance and the economy drastically changing during the four years he's in college if the hologram is still running. Besides Michael's personal and professional future, we discussed current events and what he needs to know as a freshman with a game changing presidential election two months after he starts college. He is old enough to vote but is not registered in Mass.
