bnupperws “listen to the mustn’ts, child. listen to the don’ts. listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossible, the won’ts. listen to the never haves, then listen close to me...anything can happen, child. anything can be.” shel silverstein was born #onthisday in 1930, and his weird and wonderful children’s poetry and illustrations endure. where the sidewalk ends is still a beloved favorite! it did spend some time on banned books list because it was thought that some of the poems made children too rebellious...but as it’s also #bannedbooksweek and there’s nothing wrong with some well-intentioned rebellion, it’s the perfect time to revisit this classic! . . . #bnbuzz #bnupperws #bnwestsiders #shelsilverstein #wherethesidewalkends #authorbirthdays #mondaymotivation #bannedbooks #shelsilversteinpoems #bookish #instabook #childrensbooks #poetry #bookworm #booknerd #bookstagram #bookgeek #booklove #booklover #booksbooksbooks #mustreads #tbr #booktastic #booksaremagic

freddiemercuryclub 💥the story of saturday night live💥 . ✨on this day, on september 25th 1982, queen performed "under pressure" and "crazy little thing called love" on saturday night live. . ✨this date marked the end of their continental american tour. (also their last appearance in america.). . ✨saturday night live was also very important because it was the first time the band had ever played at a very prestigious television show, watched nationwide by millions of people. . ✨the night before, however, freddie and his then boyfriend bill reid had been fighting anz screaming at each other non-stop.. here's what happened next in peter freestone's words: . 💭"when freddie awoke on saturday morning he found he had simply screamed himself hoarse the night before. we had a run-through of the show that afternoon at which point freddie merely spoke his way through as the band played. i'd gone out earlier in the morning and found some oil of olbas. we spent the whole afternoon in one of the studio's small bathrooms with the hot tap turned on full and the door shut tight to create as much steam as we could manage and i dripped as many drops of the oil as practicable to infuse the steam with healing efficacy. the electric kettle was boiling constantly to supply hot water for the continual hot honey and lemon drinks that i was making for freddie. he spent the whole afternoon convinced that he would be unable to perform and felt as though he was letting the rest of the band down badly." . 👉even though freddie had lost most of his voice that day, he still managed to deliver his best with what is called a "showstopping" performance. after all freddie mercury gives nothing less than his 100% no matter how tough it all gets...that's why he's such an inspiration to me 🙌 #istillloveyou . p.s. freddie finally dumped his douchbag of a boyfriend at the end of that tour. (thank god for that!) 😎 . #freddiemercury #saturdaynightlive #nyc #farrokhbulsara #underpressure #crazylittlethingcalledlove #80s #queen #rock #rockstar #legend #icon #rockgod #beautiful #rocknroll #quote #best #queenband #onthisday #story #rockmusic #singer #musician #hot #johndeacon #brianmay #rogertaylor #songwriter

alvaropayan13 On this day president eisenhower, called for the little rock nine to be escorted to school by federal troops. marking the end of separate but equal in schools, and the start of the civil rights movement. a republican -president eisenhower- told us that being separate is never equal. all men are created equal says the constitution. our current republican president, president trump has done nothing in that aspect to defend the constitution during the n**i rally. i am not republican/democrat. i just hope that the next president can be as presidential as eisenhower delivering that speech was. just some history lesson #unitedstatesofamerica #onthisday #presidentoftheusa #theusconstitution #equal #trump #littlerocknine #history #americanhistory #historybuff

hassanhaider235 #onthisday on 5th of muharram 61 ah, the size of the army facing imam hussain ibn ali (a.s) and his family and companions increased as even more troops arrived to join their brothers in arms on the banks of river euphrates. around this time, the imam hussain (a.s) wrote a letter to his childhood friend and companion of the holy prophet muhammad (saw) and imam ali (a.s), habib ibn mazahir(a.s). unfortunately, habib (a.s) was based in kufa, which was under strict lock-down, and he was therefore unaware of the imam’s whereabouts and heartbroken that he could not join his friend. after reading the imam’s (a.s) letter, habib (a.s) kissed it with tears in his eyes and said, “who would have thought that people would be so thirsty for the blood of the grandson of holy prophet muhammad (saw), whose name they utter in every aazaan (call to prayer) and in every salaah (prayer)?” habib(a.s) then took a great personal risk and escaped from kufa to be by his friend’s side. hazrat habib (a.s) reached karbala late in the evening. via sayed mohammed haider & humaira ali khan (follow him to get more knowledge about history and current affairs which are intentionally hidden by media)
