MRS. SOSNOWSKI HEARD THIS FROM HER MOTHER. IN POLAND ABOUT
1907, EACH NIGHT PEOPLE WENT OUT INTO THE PASTURE TO LOOK
AT THE BEAUTIFUL SUNSET. HER MOTHER SAID IT WAS THE STRANGEST
THING BECAUSE THE CLOUDS WOULD MAKE A COMPLETE FORMATION
OF A FLAG WITH A POLE. THE SUNSET MADE THE RED BACKGROUND
AND WITH THE WHITE CLOUDS FORMED THE POLISH EAGLE ON THE
FLAG. THEY ALL BELIEVED THIS WAS A SIGN THAT THERE WOULD
BE A WAR. TEN YEARS LATER WORLD WAR I BROKE OUT.
