Has this day lost its glamour? Or, do you still feel and love the pomp of this day every four years?

Do we see and hear so many reprehensible things that its hard to appreciate hairstyles, clothes and pomp.

Hearing and watching the loss of lives in Algeria for the last few days; does it make you want to sit and cry and wonder why so much glib from Our Nations Leaders rather than a comforting, consoling voice to Our nation. Just read news with the following;  “Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal is expected to give details at a Monday news conference about one of the worst international hostage crises in decades, which left American, British, French, Japanese, Norwegian and Romanian workers dead or missing. …”

Sometimes I think Sackcloth and Ashes should be the dress code for the day.
