Today January 22, 2014 is 11 Earthquake (Noj) on the Maya tzolkin calendar. There are major riots going on inside the for mer Soviet state of Ukraine. The demonstrators are against stronger ties to Russia and want to be part of the European Union.
The Berlin Wall came down on an 11 Earthquake day, Nov. 9, 1989. That was another day of East vs. West.
Of course none of these things happened in just one day, but historically these are days we will remember!
