Don’t Forget to Set Your Clock Forward

The United States adopted something akin to Daylight Savings Time in 1918 during World War I.  Woodrow Wilson thought that an extra hour of daylight would help the war effort. Wilson’s plan was repealed seven months after he initiated it, although some cities kept it.  Franklin Roosevelt instituted Daylight Savings Time for the entire nation in 1942.

  1. Time needs to remain the same. People end up getting an hour less of more sleep. Stop making people change thir sleep patterns. That is not good for people. People have a propensity to give to people what is not good for the body. Pharmaceutics and shots are another.
