Keep Calm

I know that these posters have become one of the latest fad crazes, but let's face it, the products are well designed and I like what the message is sending out. The history of the original campaign was the British started to produce the posters during 1939, at the beginning of World War II. The message was meant to raise moral of the public people in case of invasion. Two-and-a-half million copies were made for this "last-case-scenario" moral boosting campaign, but it just so happened that the posters were distributed in limited numbers and scarcely used. Sadly, the artist of the original art work and design was not documented and is still unknown. The poster was rediscovered in 2000 and were re-issued by a number of private sector companies stirring up the recent craze of the the Keep Calm & Carry On slogan.

I like the history and I appreciate how it relates to what is happening in our society today. There are a lot of upsets across the country, and across the globe, and we have a long road ahead of us. We need to remember to reset and collect ourselves, every once in a while, so that we can continue to the strong and carry on.
