There may be some confusion in your mind about whether to stay silent or take a more aggressive route and blurt out everything you feel. It’s important that you find an equal balance of both.: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Today’s Holiday: Bangladesh Independence Day


Today’s Holiday:
Bangladesh Independence Day

This public holiday celebrates the declaration of independence of the state of Bangladesh on March 26, 1971. When India gained independence from Britain in 1947, the region that is now Bangladesh became East Pakistan, and was governed together with West Pakistan as one country. By early 1971, differences between East and West Pakistan led to war. When India entered the war in November, independence was assured. Bangladeshis observe this national holiday in the capital city of Dhaka with memorial ceremonies, a boat race on the Buriganga River, and other festivities.

Today’s Birthday:
Robert Frost (1874)

Perhaps the most popular and beloved of 20th-century American poets, Frost wrote of the character, people, and landscape of New England. Rooted in the New England landscape, yet deeply symbolic, his work is concerned with human tragedies and fears, the complexities of life, and the ultimate acceptance of one’s burdens. Frost was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for poetry four times—in 1924, 1931, 1937, and 1943. He recited a poem at the inauguration of which US president?

Heaven’s Gate Cult Members Found Dead (1997)

Established in 1972, Heaven’s Gate was a cult that advocated self-renunciation, to the point of castration, as preparation for the “transition” to a new life on a spaceship, which adherents believed was trailing behind the comet Hale-Bopp. As the comet made its closest approach to Earth, 39 members of the group committed suicide. Authorities found the dead lying neatly in their bunk beds, dressed identically and wearing armbands that read “Heaven’s Gate Away Team.” How did the group fund itself?

11 Badass Jessica Jones Quotes That Will Make You Thankful She Exists

She’s brave, honest, and never has her phone charged. This holiday season, I am thankful for Marvel’s Jessica Joneson Netflix. I’m not sure whether to call her a superhero, an antihero, or combine it all to make a “superantiheroine,” but the powerful private detective is exactly what I’ve needed. Here are some quotes from the lady herself that help celebrate why I’m giving thanks for her this Thursday. While these quotes come from all thirteen episodes in Season 1 including the finale and mild spoilers follow, I won’t give away any major plot details. Only proceed with caution if you are some kind of super sleuth.

Maybe you’re spending your Thanksgiving break by finally delving into the Netflix series, or you’ve finished and you’re begging your friends and family to give it a try. Jessica Jones has caught on with comic book fans and beyond. It’s no surprise, either. She has freakin’ super strength, can basically fly, resolves to face her problems head on, and has the resourcefulness and observational skills that make her amazing at her day job to boot. Jessica Jones doesn’t angst about or try to hide her super powers, because she doesn’t have to hide them. Plus, she knows how to crack a joke and deliver an inspirational message when she needs to.

1. “Would you put day drinking under experience or special abilities?”

Don’t act like you haven’t thought about it.

2. “Looks like you stripped your screws.” “Wouldn’t be the first time.”

Heyoooo!!

3. “They say everyone’s born a hero. But if you let it, life will push you over the line until you’re the villain. Problem is, you don’t always know that you’ve crossed that line. Maybe it’s enough that the world thinks I’m a hero.”

One of the most badass things about Jessica is that she’s aware of her own limitations.

4. “God didn’t do this. The Devil did. And I’m going to find him.”

I finished Season 1 of Jessica Jonesalmost a full week ago, and I’m still skeeved out by Kilgrave.

5. “I don’t flirt. I just say what I want.”

Jessica Jones is not a role model in a lot of ways, and that is absolutely fine considering her history, but this is perfect. These are not easy words to live by.

6. “You’re coming across as paranoid.” “Everyone keeps saying that, it’s like a conspiracy.”

Even under an enormous amount of pressure, Jessica Jones has still got jokes!

7. “I don’t give a bag of d*cks what kinky sh*t you’re into. Just be into it quietly.”

I’m pretty sure I screamed out loud when I heard this line, I was so on board. Robyn and Ruben forever, am I right?

8. “You shoot at me, I’ll pull the bullet out of my ruined jacket and shove it up your ass with my pinky finger, and who do you think that’s gonna hurt more?”

So maybe she’s not actually bulletproof and maybe she doesn’t really have laser eyes, but it’s still an awesome line.

9. “You use sarcasm to distance people.” “And yet you’re still here.”

Amen, sister!

10. “You think you’re the only ones who’ve lost people? You think you’re the only ones with pain? You think you can take your sh*t and dump it on me? You don’t get to do that! So you take your God damned pain and you live with it, assholes!”

Truly, this whole monologue and scene from Episode 4, “AKA 99 Friends,” is a dream.

11. “Knowing it’s real means you gotta make a decision. One, keep denying it… “

At the end of the day, it’s decisions like that that makes Jessica Jones the hero we’ve been waiting for in the Marvel universe.

“Harvest Moon”

Come a little bit closer
Hear what I have to say
Just like children sleepin’
We could dream this night away

But there’s a full moon risin’
Let’s go dancin’ in the light
We know where the music’s playin’
Let’s go out and feel the night

Because I’m still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I’m still in love with you
On this harvest moon

When we were strangers
I watched you from afar
When we were lovers
I loved you with all my heart

But now it’s gettin’ late
And the moon is climbin’ high
I want to celebrate
See it shinin’ in your eyes

Because I’m still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I’m still in love with you
On this harvest moon

Because I’m still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I’m still in love with you
On this harvest moon

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic till I’m gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Oh, let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone
Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon
Show me slowly what I only know the limits of
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on
Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long
We’re both of us beneath our love, we’re both of us above
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the children who are asking to be born
Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn
Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic till I’m gathered safely in
Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Lay down, lay down, let it all down
Let your white birds smile up at the ones who stand and frown
Lay down, lay down, let it all down
Let your white birds smile up at the ones who stand and frown

We were so close, there was no room
We bled inside each others wounds
We all had caught the same disease
And we all sang the songs of peace
Lay down, lay down, let it all down
Let your white birds smile up at the ones who stand and frown
Lay down, lay down, let it all down
Let your white birds smile up at the ones who stand and frown
So raise the candles high
‘Cause if you don’t we could stay black against the night
Oh, raise them higher again
And if you do we could stay dry against the rain
Lay down, lay down, let it all down
Let your white birds smile up at the ones who stand and frown
Lay down, lay down, let it all down
Let your white birds smile up at the ones who stand and frown
We were so close there was no room
We bled inside each others wounds
We all had caught the same disease
And we all sang the songs of peace
Some came to sing, some came to pray
Some came to keep the dark away
So raise the candles high
‘Cause if you don’t we could stay black against the sky
Oh, oh, raise them higher again
And if you do we could stay dry against the rain
Lay down, lay down, let it all down
Let your white birds smile up at the ones who stand and frown
You gotta lay down, lay down, let it all down
Let your white birds smile up at the ones who stand and frown
You gotta lay down, lay down, let it all down
Let your white birds smile up at the ones who stand and frown
You gotta lay down, lay down, let it all down
Let your white birds smile up at the ones who stand and frown
