Keep Calm and... Square Your Actions

by John Paul Gomez September 10, 2012

 Anyone who spends a good amount of time online have probably seen the "Keep Calm and ..." meme posters. I googled its origins was pleasantly surprised to discover the historical significance of this meme. It was produced by the Government of the United Kingdom in 1939  during the Beginning of the Second World War. The original text reads "Keep Calm and Carry On" and was intended to raise the morale of the British public in the event of invasion. Here's my take on this historical artifact and now a popular meme:

It would be great if you had one for each warden and the WM. It could read “Keep calm and …”

1- Meet on the level
2- act by the plumb
3- part upon the square

And each could have the officer’s jewel in the middle. Just throwing an idea out there for you. Hope all is well, brother.
