|All Souls’ Day is a day of alms giving and prayers for the dead. The
intent is for the living to assist those in purgatory. Many western
churches annually observe All Souls’ Day on November 2 and many eastern
churches celebrate it prior to Lent and the day before Pentecost.
What do people do?
... All Souls’ Day is not a nationwide public holiday but is observed
in some Christian churches in countries such as Australia, Canada, the
United Kingdom and the United States.

|"Her method is not to teach, but to guide. She will listen carefully - challenge - and guide us in coming to our own conclusions. The dynamic quality of that guidance indicates her own depth of knowledge and comprehension, and her determination to influence definite, accurate thinking in us. We, her students, find her an inspiration."|
|February 1936 Anchor, p. 30||1957 Anchor, p. 14||
1961 Anchor, p. 6 - "DEDICATED TO MISS WISE, FOR YOUR KNOWLEDGE,
and to MR. WILSON, FOR YOUR SPIRIT"
Miss Wise was indeed an inspiration. I was blessed to have her teach me
Advanced World History during my senior year. I remember clearly how she
constantly strove to have us think, rather than just to absorb information. Her
classes were always both challenging and fascinating.
She was also fun and frequently did the unexpected thing. She was tall - about six feet. I am short - 5' 2-1/4". Once at the end of a long day we found ourselves walking the same hall together. She came alongside me and rested her left elbow on my right shoulder, the better to hold up her head - all without missing a beat in our conversation. What a delightful woman she was!

From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 10/31/18 - "Statistics (#2 in a series of 18)":
numbers are based on a single day. The one that may not be clear is the 5000 -
an estimate of how many steps the average person takes in a day. I don't know if
anyone else will find these of interest, or as much as I do, but one thing that
stood out to me is the imbalance in the numbers. Our dependence on technology is
clear. It is certainly a blessing in many ways; just hope it does not make life
WOW! Thank you, Shari!
