Agenda: Wed. and Thu. April 7th and 8th

Quote of the Day:  "We were eighteen and had begun to love life and the world; and we had to shoot it to pieces. The first bomb, the first explosion, burst in our hearts. We are cut off from activity, from striving, from progress. We believe in such things no longer, we believe in the war." 
- Erich Maria Remarque, All Quiet On The Western Front, Ch. 5
