Song lyrics | Give Peace A Chance lyrics
CLUE: The School Day of Non-violence and Peace is held on January 30 every year.
Can you guess the word of this week?
ANSWER: Sorry, "peace" was too obvious and it was included in the clue, so as you can imagine, it wasn't the word we were looking for. The word of this week was PEACE-LOVING (adjective): inclined or disposed to peace, liking peace and trying to live and act in a way which will bring it.
AND THE WINNER IS... No winner this week. Keep trying!
PARTICIPANTS: Barack Obama
LOCATION: Washington, D.C. (US Capitol)

Obama's inaugural speech
Create your "Obamicon"
The swearing-in of the President of the United States occurs upon the commencement of a new term of a President of the United States. The United States Constitution mandates that the President make the following oath or affirmation before he or she can "enter on the Execution" of the office of the presidency:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
The newly elected or re-elected President traditionally adds "so help me God" to the constitutionally mandated statement.
The theme for Inauguration Day is "A New Birth of Freedom," in honor of the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth.
One dollar and eighty-seven cents. That was all. And sixty cents of it was in pennies. Pennies saved one and two at a time by bulldozing the grocer and the vegetable man and the butcher until one's cheeks burned with the silent imputation of parsimony that such close dealing implied. Three times Della counted it. One dollar and eighty- seven cents. And the next day would be Christmas.
The Gift of the Magi is one of O. Henry's most famous short stories. Christmas has become too commercial and it is a good example of how people forget the true spiritual meaning of special occasions. Read the story and remember that "love is the greatest gift of all".
