The forgotten item was a proclamation for a National Days of Remembrance of the Victims of the Holocaust.
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in order to accentuate the topic he had studied in school and it was a quite a learning experience for the both of us. Then recently during a trip to the Marcus Jewish Community Center we stopped by to visit the Holocaust Memorial Garden and he then understood that what happened 70 years ago in Europe still very deeply affected the families many of whom are now part of the Dunwoody community.
At the start of the meeting there is public comment segment which allows anyone to come to the podium to speak for three minutes and I would welcome anyone from the community to help us never forget.
On April 24, 1979 the first National Civic Commemoration of the Holocaust was held in the Capitol Rotunda, with the following address delivered by President Carter:
Although words do pale, yet we must speak. We must strive to understand. We must teach the lessons of the Holocaust. And most of all, we ourselves must remember. We must learn not only about the vulnerability of life, but of the value of human life. We must remember the terrible price paid for bigotry and hatred and also the terrible price paid for indifference and for silence.... To truly commemorate the victims of the Holocaust, we must harness the outrage of our memories to banish all human oppression from the world. We must recognize that when any fellow human being is stripped of humanity; when any person is turned into an object of repression; tortured or defiled or victimized by terrorism or prejudice or racism, then all human beings are victims, too. The world's failure to recognize the moral truth forty years ago permitted the Holocaust to proceed. Our generation--the generation of survivors--will never permit the lesson to be forgotten.
The last minute agenda addition was a request in response to City Staff investigating and then allowing a garage sale which on the surface looked to be the equivalent of a licensed business (addressed out of a home), having customer contact for sales out of the home which is not allowed per the residential zoning code.
Councilman Nall has asked that a discussion be had on ... "Garage sales as a conduit for a licensed business owner conducting onsite retail sales event within a residential zoning district."
