Ridley's Believe It Or Not For November 13, 2015 World Kindness Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not—November 13, 2015, 434 days to go in President Obama’s term. Trust your Friday is off to a great start; as always I hope you enjoy Friday’s holidays and observances, factoids of interest, a music video  by Meat Loaf,  a relevant quote from Rosa Parks, looking forward to enjoying a bowl of Indian Pudding, blessed with a positive attitude and secure in the knowledge that if you want to find a gift for any memorable event like birthdays, weddings, or anniversaries, you know that the Alaskanpoet can provide you with a unique customized poem at a great price tailored to the event and the recipient. You need only contact me for details. 
         1. World Kindness Day—creating since 1998 an idea that transcends national and neighborhood boundaries—kindness practiced toward all you might meet today and perhaps all the other days of the year.                                           
         2. Sadie Hawkins Day—promoting one of the few days of the year when women are supposed to chase after single men as opposed to the other way around.
         3. 1993 Number One Song—celebrating the number one song in 1993 on a run of five weeks in that position I’d Do Anything For Love by Meat Loaf. Here is a link to Meat Loaf performing I’d Do Anything For Love:
         4.  National Indian Pudding  Day—celebrating a dish that this highly evolved omnivore has not had the pleasure of trying.
         5.  When It Comes To Drugs Quit ASAP—celebrating the birthday on this day in 1988 of rapper ASAP Yams who like so many rappers struggled with addiction and died of a drug overdose on January 18 of this year.
On this day in:                                           
         a. 1841 James Braid observes animal magnetism which he studied and developed into hypnotism.
         b. 1947 the Soviet Union completed development of the iconic assault rifle, the AK-47 the weapon of choice of terrorists around the world.
         c. 1958 the U.S. Supreme Court in Browder v. Gayle ruled that Alabama laws providing for segregation on buses was unconstitutional resulting in the end of Montgomery Bus Boycott spawned by one very brave woman, Rosa Parks, who was arrested for failing to give up her seat and move to the back of the bus.                                  
         d. 1982 the Vietnam War Memorial was dedicated.
         e. 2001 for the first time since World War II, foreigners suspected of acts of terror against the United States become subject to the jurisdiction of military tribunals due to an executive order signed by President Bush.
        Reflections from a very brave woman: “I would like to be remembered as a person who wanted to be free... so other people would be also free.” Rosa Parks
