Kev’s Daily Take On 08/14/2022

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all

Events and Celebrations

 NAVAJO CODE TALKERS DAY honors the unbreakable secret code and the Native Americans who brought it to us during WWII.  The enemy was never able decipher it and it served the Marines well.

NATIONAL V-J DAY celebrates the moment that the world found out that Japan was surrendering.  Celebrations broke out and it was definitely time for WWII to be over.

SPIRIT OF ’45 DAY remembers the attitude of our country during WWII.  Everyone came together and pitched in.  The soldiers went off to fight, the women went to work in factories, the kids took on chores at home and everyone rationed and saved when it was needed.  That was a long time ago and a couple of generations removed, but I would like to think, that we could do it again.

It is time to get responsible with NATIONAL FINANCIAL AWARENESS DAY.  Saving and investing your money could make for a nice future.  Nothing is guaranteed but it never hurts to plan.

Need a new book to read?  LOVE YOUR BOOKSTORE DAY encourages us to head down to our favorite literary haunt and browse through the rows and shelves of possibilities. 

Time to cool off with NATIONAL CREAMSICLE DAY.  These frozen treats have the cream in the middle and a flavored sherbet shell.  Orange is the original flavor, but now there is quite the variety.  I’d say it’s a great day to get your creamsicle on.
