See full size imagehappy Yom Kippur! I’m not jewish, so I know nothing about this holiday, except that I don’t have school! but I found¬† this on the internet about the history of yom kippur, so enjoy!:

is the Jewish day of repentance, considered to be one of the holiest and most solemn days of the year. Its central theme is atonement and reconciliation. Eating, washing, cosmetics, wearing leather shoes, and conjugal relations are prohibited (Mishnah tractate Yoma 8:1). Total abstention from food and drink usually begins half-an-hour before sundown (called “tosefet Yom Kippur,” the “addition” of fasting part of the day before is required by Jewish law), and ends after nightfall the following day. Although the fast is required of all healthy adults, fasting is specifically forbidden for anyone who might be harmed by it. In the year 2007, Yom Kippur will be celebrated from sunset on September 21 through sunset on September 22.¬†
Yom Kippur is observed in different ways in different Jewish communities. Sephardic Jews (Jews of Spanish, Portuguese and North African descent) refer to this holiday as “the White Fast.” Consequently, many Jews have the custom of wearing only white clothing on this day, to symbolize their “white” (pure) desire to free themselves from sin. Ashkenazic Jews, while acknowledging the origins of the holiday as a day of rejoicing, tend to take a more somber, solemn attitude to the day.

So happy roshashanah!

I’m not Jewish, but here is some info about the holiday:

Rosh Hashanah (Hebrew for “beginning of the year”) is the Jewish spiritual New Year. The Mishnah, the core work of the Jewish oral law, sets this day aside as the new year for calculating calendar years and sabbatical and jubilee years. Rabbinic literature describes this day as a day of judgement. God is sometimes referred to as the “Ancient of Days.” Some descriptions depict God as sitting upon a throne, while books containing the deeds of all humanity are opened before Him. This holiday is part of the Yamim Noraim (Hebrew, “Days of Awe”); the Yamim Noraim are a ten day period which begins with Rosh Hashanah, followed by the days of repentance, and end with the holiday of Yom Kippur.

So how was everyone’s first week of school? My first day of school was on the 9th, so I only had 3 days in a week

Wednesday:

I woke up at 5:45 am, thinking that I would need time to get ready earlier, but as always, I was wrong. We had to leave at 6:20, and I was done with everything by 6! I couldn’t go back to sleep, since I already did everything. After a few minutes of watching TV, we left

At school, I didn’t see any of my friends because I was there REALLY¬† early, so I was just walking around for a long time………..

yesterday was a horrible day in history. Most of you should still remember what happened on Sept. 11, 2001 in New York.

September 11, 2001 Attacks

Twin towers of the World Trade Center burning.
Location New York City; Arlington County, Virginia; and near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
Date Tuesday, September 11, 2001
8:46¬†am¬†(2001-09-11T08:46) ‚Äď 10:28¬†am¬†(2001-09-11T10:29) (UTC-4)
Attack type Aircraft hijacking, Mass murder, Suicide attack
Death(s) 3,017 (including 24 presumed dead and 19 hijackers)
Injured 6,291+
Perpetrator(s) al-Qaeda led by Osama bin Laden, see also Responsibility and Hijackers.

The September 11 attacks (often referred to as September 11th or 9/11) were a series of coordinated suicide attacks by Al-Qaeda upon the United States on September 11, 2001. On that morning, 19 Al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four commercial passenger jet airliners.[1][2] The hijackers intentionally crashed two of the airliners into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, killing everyone on board and many others working in the buildings. Both buildings collapsed within two hours, destroying nearby buildings and damaging others. The hijackers crashed a third airliner into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, just outside of Washington, D.C. The fourth plane crashed into a field near Shanksville in rural Pennsylvania, after some of its passengers and flight crew attempted to retake control of the plane, which the hijackers had redirected toward Washington, D.C. There were no survivors from any of the flights.

In total 2,993 people, including the hijackers, died in the attacks.[3][4] The overwhelming majority of casualties were civilians, including nationals of over 90 countries. In addition, the death of at least one person from lung disease was ruled by a medical examiner to be a result of exposure to dust from the World Trade Center’s collapse.[5] The United States responded to the attacks by launching a “War on Terrorism“, invading¬† to depose the Taliban, who had harbored al-Qaeda terrorists, and enacting the USA patriot act. Many other countries also strengthened their anti-terrorism legislation and expanded law enforcement powers. Some American stock exchanges stayed closed for the rest of the week following the attack, and posted enormous losses upon reopening, especially in the airline and insurance industries. The destruction of billions of dollars worth of office space caused serious damage to the economy of Lower Manhattan.

guess what today is!

I’ll give you a few clues:

do you know why we have a labor day?

well, I looked it up on google, and here is the history (note that I copied and pasted it from the original site,  http://www.dol.gov/OPA/ABOUTDOL/LABORDAY.HTM)

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

so take your socks off, play board games like sorry! or life with your working parents!
