September brings us the first day of autumn, Hispanic Heritage Month and International Day of Peace, aka “Peace Day,” on Friday, September 21st with special activities and celebrations all across the world. Sir Robert Peel submitted the Metropolis Police Improvement Bill to the British Parliament in 1829 to curb the level of lawlessness in the streets of London. This was the birth of Scotland Yard. And, in the words of Lawrence S. Pertillar, “September arrives and autumn begins. The Summer then bows to fall.”
