Dynamite birthday

Today is the birthday of Alfred Nobel who actually invented dynamite. He intended it to be used for peaceful purposes.

“I wish all guns with their belongings and everything could be sent to hell, which is the proper place for their exhibit and use.”–Alfred Nobel

I’m indebted to Brother David Steindl-Rast once again for this information. Brother David’s Gratefulness.org always has interesting information that makes me glad to be alive.
