What's Happening Today

Hello Grad Students!
I hope July has been treating you well, and that you've been staying cool during the nation's heat wave. Today's my birthday! So, thinking about this day in history, I thought I would feature a few other anniversaries today, for reflection.

Today, July 20th, 2013, is:

--The one year anniversary of the Aurora movie theater massacre; click here for last year's Grad.Life post after the terrifying event, and click on the following links for some thoughts about the tragedy, one year later.


--The 44th anniversary of Apollo 11's landing on the Moon. On this day 44 years ago, six hundred million viewers tuned in on their TVs to watch as now famous astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, and Michael Collins successfully completed their mission to land a spacecraft on Earth's only moon.

and Tomorrow is....

--National Ice Cream Day!! To celebrate, here are some ideas:
  • Enjoy an icy, creamy treat from the local mom-and-pop ice cream shop or ice-cream truck
  • Donate a gift-certificate for an ice-cream treat to a local non-profit organization that helps kids, like the Boys and Girls Club of America, or maybe a local school for special needs students
  • Make your own ice cream! Here are some cool recipes

I'll be back next week with some more 'Appy July features, to wrap up this month! 
Until next time, Liza
