3. "We Wish You a Merry Christmas"
4. Idlewild Airport
5. Tom Bosley
6. Cinderella
7. Doctor od Osteopathic Medicine

While the election of Kamala Harris to vice president is historic, she isn’t
the first person of color to hold the position. The first was actually
Charles Curtis, who took office nearly a century ago.
Curtis was a member of the Kaw Nation who served as Herbert Hoover’s vice
president from 1929 to 1933, and he has a complicated historical legacy.
Curtis supported women’s voting rights, child labor laws and the 1924 Indian
Citizenship Act. At the same time, he promoted assimilationist policies that
harmed many Native Americans. One of his most significant impacts on U.S.
policy is the Curtis Act of 1898, which weakened Native governments and
helped break up Indigenous reservations.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
