George Washington: A Life From Beginning to End (President Biographies Book 1)

by Hourly History

George Washington
George Washington, the first president of the United States, is much more than a monument on Mount Rushmore. Who was Washington, the general, president, and husband? He was first and foremost a man of impeccable honor which, despite military adversity and political wrangling, never abandoned him. The Founding Fathers who squabbled and competed amongst themselves did agree on one thing: only Washington could lead the country, first in the country’s military fight for freedom and then as the man charged with transforming thirteen individual states into a united country. But in his youth, George Washington did not intend to become the Father of his Country. As a younger son of a middling class Virginian, he intended to earn his living as a surveyor, and in that role,...

Preparing for a Meditation Retreat: A 10-day Vipassana Meditation Retreat Primer (The 10-day Vipassana Meditation Retreat)

by Kyle Harris

Meditation retreats have become increasingly popular in recent years. While considerable effort is put forth by the organizers of these retreats, oftentimes meditators have not adequately prepared, nor do they have a plan for how to best benefit from their experiences afterwards.

This book is the first in a series written to appeal to those interested in the benefits, with full disclosure on my mistakes, what I wish I knew, and an in-depth look at why it was the most life-changing...

Manchuria on the Sea : A Story about My Earliest Recollection

by Tsuyoshi Kishida and Lyris Hidalgo

One theory about memory retention holds that we never lose our memories. Rather, we store our memories in a drawer of our brain, but we merely cannot retrieve them. My oldest recollection is of something relating to Manchuria (currently northeastern China) and Manchukuo, a puppet state of Japan that existed for only 14 years from 1932 to 1945.This essay is a short memoir of mine. I am one person who was born in 1944, in a “country that no longer exists,” and then repatriated to Japan in 1946. The memoir is based on my fragmentary memories, together with my family’s stories. Seventy three years have passed since World War II ended, and it seems most Japanese have already forgotten the war, even though Japan was deeply involved in the war. By writing about a civilian’s war experience...
