A Little Keep Calm History

Yesterday I saw a cool poster on the wall of a classroom, with a little history attached:

So, these KEEP CALM posters have pretty much taken over the internet...

I think its interesting to know where this Keep Calm idea originated.  According to the excerpt along with this poster, the history of Keep Calm is as follows:

"Keep Calm and Carry On was a poster produced by the British government in 1939 during the beginning of the Second World War, intended to raise the morale of the British public in the even of invasion."

So, these Keep Calm posters are all well and good and cute and everything, but the truth is they were designed to encourage people during a real time of war and mortal danger.  So, whatever you are feeling you need to "keep calm" from these days, get over it and remember you don't have Nazis bombing your country.  Things will be fine.

There's a little history for your Thursday.
