Our List

1913 fashion
Here's a few Important World Events from 100 years ago in 1913:
  • 14-year-old Al Capone is expelled from school for starting a fist fight with his teacher.
  • Albert Einstein works on his new Theory of Gravity at the Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich.
  • The 16th Ammendment is ratified, instituting our national income tax.
  • Rosa Parks and Jesse Owens are born and Harriet Tubman dies.
  • Ford creates the first moving assembly line.
  • Woodrow Wilson is inaugurated 28th President.
  • Swede, Gideon Sundback, patents the zipper.
  • Harry Brearley invents stainless steel.
  • The Mona Lisa, stolen from Louvre Museum in 1911, is recovered.
What will be invented, who will be born, who will die, and what circumstances will change our lives in 2013?

Most of us will never be included in a list of important world events, but each of us has a list.

Our list comes from God and He’s prepared things in advance for us to do (Ephesians 2:10).

May we fulfill God’s purposes in 2013!

  5. I agree with Kc: I'm not so sure we'll look all that grand to future generations. Of course, Al Capone wasn't such a nifty guy either, and he made your list. :-D Great topic. Thank you for sharing in the GRAND Social.
