    Any fool can make history, but it takes a genius to write it.

    in Aljazeera channel is called:
    "حدث في مثل هذا اليوم"
    in BBC, skynews it used to be:
    "in this day"

    these programs state the most important historical events of a specific day, i found them very interesting since they try to keep this balance of past-present-future in humans' life


    so here, in this thread, i will try to do the same and mention the major historical events of everyday
    and of course everybody can participate by adding events,comments...ect


    thank you​
