A Dark Day

There are dark days in history. Usually they dawn without a hint of being anything but ordinay, yet end with everybody knowing the events will not be forgotten. Sadness and anger, in fact, can remain even after those who actually lived the dark day are gone. Historians can help by examining what led to the tragedy, and why those events hold so much meaning afterwards.
