Saturday, the 18th of July, 2015 is the 199th day in 2015 and in the 29th calendar week.
General Events:
Nelson Mandela International Day 2015
July 18, 2015 in the World
Nelson Mandela International Day, also known as Mandela Day, is an international day in honour of Nelson Mandela, celebrated on 18. July 2015. On this day, Mandela was born in 1918, so it celebrates his birthday. The day was officially declared by the United Nations in November 2009, with the first UN Mandela Day held on 18 July 2010.
Mandela Day is not meant as a public holiday, but as a day to honour the legacy of Nelson Mandela, South Africa’s former President, and his values, through volunteering and community service. The day is a global call to action that celebrates the idea that each individual has the power to transform the world, the ability to make an impact.
Nelson Mandela, who died in 2013, was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician and philanthropist who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was South Africa’s first black chief executive, and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election. His government focused on dismantling the legacy of apartheid through tackling institutionalised racism, poverty and inequality, and fostering racial reconciliation. The text Mandela Day has been taken from www.cute-calendar.com.
“It is easy to break down and destroy. The heroes are those who make peace and build.”
                                                           – Nelson Mandela

Toss Away the “Could Haves” and “Should Haves” Day 2015
July 18, 2015 in the USA
Across the United States, the third Saturday in July of each year recognizes Toss Away the “Could Haves” and “Should Haves” Day. 
Created by author and motivational speaker Martha J. Ross-Rodgers, this day is intended for all to let go of the past and live for the present.  To help with this venture, find a paper and pen, write down your “could haves” and “should haves” and then throw it away. Once you have thrown your “could haves” and “should haves” in the trash, make the following resolution:
“From this day forward, I choose not to live in the past, the past is history that I can not change.  I can do something about the present, I choose to live in the present.”
Now….. take care of yourself and your health by living for now, do your best and make the best of each and every day!
