Source: Control: A powerful word with so many meanings. Some people need to be in control to function. Possibly productive but not healthy. These people make sure everyone and everything is in it’s place at all costs. No one can control everything. That is the downfall for these people.
The control that works the devices devices we rely on every day. Most people don’t know where the on/off switch is on today’s televisions. What happens when you can’t find that thing that controls it. The controller. Who’s in control then?
I saw a man selling poppies stop a lady and asked if he could re-position her poppy. While doing so he told that lady she should wear the poppy on their right side; the red represents the blood of all those who gave their lives, the black represents the mourning of those who didn’t have their loved ones return home, and the green leaf represents the grass and crops growing and future prosperity after the war destroyed so much. The leaf should be positioned at 11 o’clock to represent the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the time that World War One formally ended. He was worried that younger generations wouldn’t understand this and his generation wouldn’t be around for much longer to teach them. (copy and paste to share just like I did) 🌹 we must remember those from our current wars too!I copied this from someone else. Please do the same to pass this knowledge on to those who may not know the meaning behind the poppies that are sold every year.
Source: Apprentice: Apprentice in prior centuries was the way to learn a trade to support oneself and the family. Apprenticeships are still common in many countries. To this day in North America in order to become a plumber, electrician or carpenter a person must spend a certain amount of time with someone licensed or certified in the field. To become S physical therapist it is required you observe physical therapist first. Apprenticeships do still exist but the terms are different. Colonial times the apprentice also lived with the skilled tradesman and his family. This is obviously rarely necessary in modern countries. Perhaps it still necessary in less developed countries. I’ve come to the end of my knowledge on this word. Lucky you!
