New Mexico Veterans' Memorial to Commemorate End of Vietnam War

On Saturday, April 30 beginning at 10am the New Mexico Veterans' Memorial is hosting a special commemoration at which Veterans from all branches of service who served during that war will share their memories and stories of wartime. Others who served, or those who have non-combat memories they wish to share will be welcomed.

Forty one years ago Americans watched their televisions as reports of the fall of Saigon signaled the end of one of the most challenging military events in our history. April 30 is the 41st anniversary of the 1975 fall of Saigon that brought the war to its official end.

This year marks the 61st anniversary of the start of the Vietnam War, although regular U.S. combat forces weren't deployed until 1965. Direct U.S. military involvement ended in 1973.

Following the presentation in the Rose Garden that features over 400 plantings, all of which have significance in honoring various military events and traditions, the event will move to the Visitors' Center where refreshments and displays will be available to further engage those attending. A moment of silence will honor those fallen who are featured on the New Mexico Vietnam Wall.

Attendees may also visit the Vietnam War Monument that depicts a soldier saying goodbye to his comrade and buddy.

Special invitees to the commemoration are our Albuquerque Vietnamese neighbors. Bring the whole family to honor, learn and share in a day of memories and healing.

The program is co-sponsored by the City of Albuquerque and NM Veterans' Memorial Foundation.

New Mexico Veterans' Memorial Park is located at 1100 Louisiana SE and is managed by the City of Albuquerque. For more information on events and activities, please visit CultureABQ.com, or call 311.

Former ABQ Reporter Visits Page 1

Gerald Moore, former Albuquerque Tribune reporter, will be at Page One Books at 4pm on Saturday, April 30, to talk about and sign his non-fiction effort, LIFE Story: The Education of an American Journalist.

The book is described as such: "Before Americans got their news from television, they got it from LIFE, the weekly magazine that set the standard for photojournalism. In LIFE Story, Gerald Moore, a writer and editor who worked at the magazine in the last glory years before TV made it obsolete, recalls the dizzying excitement and glamour of LIFE's fast-moving, powerful approach to spreading the news. Moore covered the major stories of the late 1960s and early 1970s: LSD, assassinations, the 1968 Democratic convention in Chicago, the McCarthy campaign, urban riots, the My Lai massacre, and the beginnings of feminism. His story offers a wonderful look back at the good and the bad old days of journalism."

Moore joined the staff of LIFE at the age of 27. Before that, he was a philosophy student at the University of NM who became a nighttime police officer and then a reporter at The Albuquerque Tribune in the 1960s, both jobs teaching him the tools of his trade. At LIFE magazine, he was a leading reporter, bureau chief, and eventually an editor. When LIFE ended publication as a weekly magazine in December of 1972, Moore turned to freelance magazine writing. His articles appeared in People, Saturday Evening Post, Reader’s Digest, Families, Horticulture and other national magazines. Moore lives in Hudson, N.Y., and Chapel Hill, N.C.

Page One Books is located at 5850 Eubank NE, Suite B-41, in Albuquerque's Mountain Run Shopping Center (southeast corner of Eubank and Juan Tabo). The Moore event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 294-2026 or visit [link].

Why Should I Love You

Kate Bush Mourns Prince

It's almost too much

Kate Bush and Prince collaborated several times. In her digital eulogy of the pop royalty on her website, Bush stated:

I am so sad and shocked to hear the tragic news about Prince. He was the most incredibly talented artist. A man in complete control of his work from writer and musician to producer and director. He was such an inspiration. Playful and mind-blowingly gifted. He was the most inventive and extraordinary live act I've seen. The world has lost someone truly magical. Goodnight dear Prince.

Prince appeared on the track embedded here, "Why Should I Love You" from Bush's 1993 album Red Shoes and, in turn, Bush collaborated with Prince on his album, Emancipation.

The Daily Word in Star Wars, Solar Power and Oddball Imagery

The Daily Word

Not all Internet-born relationships are doomed. If you're as lucky as this surreal pair of artists you'll find a brain as bizarre as yours. Love awaits in strange photo ops involving distortion and creepy props. Compatibility at its finest.

How does one accidentally run a half-marathon? Ask this 12-year-old.

Ever seen Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds? Fictional, right? That's what I thought, too, but don't be fooled. Behind the beady black eyes of ravens and crows are brains just as clever as chimpanzees'. I'm not saying they're planning an attack but be prepared.

One thing that Donald Trump is exceptionally good at? Playing the victim.

Thousands of animals lovers sign a petition to ban tourists riding elephants after one in Cambodia falls to his death.

A team of 5 and 6-year-olds takes home a trophy taller than themselves for winning a competitive chess competition.

I guess a bad economy (not, I don't know, slowly killing the planet) is justifiable reason for workers to quit pumping oil and switch to working with renewable resources.

Internet conspiracies are abuzz, but all we can do is wait. The only certainty: Star Wars Episode VIII is gonna be... different.

Dream Blog #360

My dog Igloo and I launch into space from the front pasture at my parents' house. It's nighttime, and the sky is a dark blue with the lights of the Milky Way dotted across the expanse. Actually, it's less of a launch and more of a jump. After we pass the atmosphere, I can't tell how much progress we're making because there's barely a breeze. It's black around us scattered with distant stars, but I still see the glow of the Earth creeping up from behind us.

I look at Igloo and pet his head. I look down at the Earth—round and innocent—and it's slowly drifting away. I notice a red string tied to my ankle and his ankle that go all the way back down to somewhere on the surface of our planet. I look up toward Mars, far in the distance, and then back to Iggy. He rolls over so I can rub his belly while we travel.

I wake up.
