1. ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY
29th September 1918
THE ALLIES BREACH THE SIEGFRIED LINE
The Allies were in the middle of a major offensive that had begun with the decisive victory of the Battle of Amiens in August. The Siegfried Line was the last German static line of defence. 1,637 guns were concentrated along a 10,000-yard-long front. In the last 24 hours alone the British artillery fired a record 945,052 shells. This obliterated the defences and caused a gap through which Allied troops were able to advance.
Though German resistance continued to be fierce, with no fixed defences remaining, the Allies could bring their superior numbers, resources and firepower to full effect, and the Germans could only at best slow the advance. In November the Germans sued for peace.

3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
To counter this inclination, I put my focus on making a difference, to myself, the environment and others, and on making the maximum difference possible per unit time. Internally, the focus is on unity, getting all the various aspects of this character united behind the common cause.

7. NOW THAT'S FUNNY!
One of the largest earthquakes in history occurred over 100 miles off the coast of Chile on May 22, 1960. Just 15 minutes after the 9.5 quake, 80-foot waves struck the coast. Fifteen hours later, tsunami waves struck Hawaii and, finally, 22 hours after the earthquake, the tsunami struck Japan10,000 miles from where the earthquake took place.
9. ZEN WISDOM
Life is tenacious; it is endowed with the impulse to survive and the power to heal. Ultimately, it is we ourselves who can cure our illnesses, and the decision to undertake this battle arises from within.
