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
NATIONAL SOBER DAY was started by Real Aligned Women to celebrate sober life and to bring awareness to addiction. Addiction can happen to anyone and having a good caring support system can make all the difference. If you need help, don’t fight this battle by yourself. Today is a good day to be sober.
LIVE CREATIVE DAY encourages the artist in all of us to come out and play. Whether that means painting, singing, coming up with a new game, writing a new computer program or just thinking up new ideas – whatever it is – let your creative genius shine today.
NATIONAL PARENTS DAY OFF coincides with the kiddos going back to school. You never stop being a parent and you may not even get the whole day off but see if you can’t find some time to relax and do your own thing.
NATIONAL HOAGIE DAY celebrates this sandwich that is a meal all by itself. Hoagies, subs, heroes, grinders, or whatever you call them, are just begging to be loaded with all of the meats, cheeses and veggies you want. Build it and have at it.
Let’s sweeten the pot with CREAM FILLED DONUT DAY. It’s a donut…with cream…enough said…just enjoy.
