The 105th Anniversary of Bloody Sunday

It’s amazing to think that it’s already been 105 years since Bloody Sunday. It seems like it was only yesterday that I joined with Father George Gapon and other peaceful demonstrators in St. Petersburg, Russia to present a petition to Tsar Nicholas II, only to be brutally gunned down. Time sure does fly when you’re having fun!

One of my biggest regrets of having never ran for Congress is knowing that I never had an opportunity to introduce legislation that would mandate January 22nd of every year as “Bloody Sunday Day.” Maybe this has a little something to do with the fact that “Bloody Sunday Day” would be confusing if it fell on, for example, a Wednesday. Although what a great commercial this would make:

“All furniture is half off this Wednesday for our Bloody Sunday Day Sale!!!!! This Wednesday only.”

Just because we don’t celebrate Bloody Sunday Day here in the United States doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate ourselves. Start a bloody parade! Attend a bloody rally! Throw a bloody party! Or if you lack both the time and friends to initiate any of the above… then have a bloody mary!

Happy Bloody Sunday Day!
