    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****


    (1) Watching television today reminded me of your question.

    (2) This is a language, not a political, website. So I must be

    super discreet:

    Today a certain leader of a certain country resigned because

    his people peacefully insisted that he do so.

    Thus today is truly a HISTORIC day. Not only for that certain

    country but for the world. Your children will ask you someday:

    Where were you when you heard the news on that historic day?

    I think that life has given you an unforgettable lesson in the difference

    between historical and historic.
