New NATIONAL HOLIDAY
I truly believe today, January 8th, should be a national holiday. Why you may ask? Well today is Elvis’ birthday. Once your laughing subsides, read on.
Yes, Elvis never did any great accomplishments in the political arena, or cured any health problems, or saved children from starvation. You know all those accomplishments society bestows on those that have national holidays on the calendar.
He did, through music, change the world. In the mid-fifties, the greatest generation had survived the depression, had won the war, and settled in to a peaceful life, new house, new car, stay home Mama rearing us baby boomers, then “Rock-an-Roll” hit the scene, and changed the total world. Elvis led that attack. Good or bad, he changed man’s culture and the world’s way of life.
