I’ve never been much of a history buff, and know that I will struggle when it comes to teaching my kids history. So, I thought I periodically check to find out what happened on this day in history…
This day in American History
This day in International History
On April 2, 2005, Pope John Paul II died at his home in the Vatican.
Today also happens to be Good Friday, a day observed by Christians worldwide, and commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. Because of his death, I so freely live. Without the cross, there would not have been a resurrection. I thank God for that empty tomb!
