December 2 -- A day for Reflection

1859 -- Charles Town, Virginia
John Brown is hanged for his crimes against the state of Virginia

1949 -- The United Nations
The UN declares Dec 2, as the International Day for the Abolition of Slavery

Today is a day for reflection, contemplation, and honoring those who have been affected by the horrors of slavery.
