Events and Celebrations
NATIONAL LAW ENFORCEMENT SUICIDE AWARENESS DAY was created by BLUE H.E.L.P. (Honor, Educate, Lead, Prevent). Due to the constant exposure to trauma, more officers are lost to suicide than to felonious assault, and they have the highest risk for suicide out of any employment. Today, we honor those fallen heroes and hold all police in the highest regard for their dedication to serve and to protect. Go to Blue H.E.L.P. to find out more and see how you can help.
NATIONAL FAMILY DAY is all about hanging out with your loved ones. There has never been a better time than now.
NATIONAL MESATHELIOMA AWARENESS DAY looks to help those suffering from this cancer caused by asbestos and to educate the public. If you think you have come into contact with this stuff or know someone who has, check out Mesathelioma.org for answers.
A tip of the hat goes to COMPLIANCE OFFICER DAY. These people make sure everyone is following the procedures and that the company is up to date on them. Thank you for what you do.
NATIONAL SITUATIONAL AWARENESS DAY reminds us how important it is to be aware of our surroundings. Please, for safety’s sake and for those who care about you, know what’s going on around you.
JOHNNY APPLESEED DAY tells us about John Chapman, the man who really cared about the environment. Plenty of myths abound concerning him, but in reality, he educated quite a few people on the growing of trees and took care of a lot of sick ones himself.
LUMBERJACK DAY cuts us down to size as we contemplate the life of a woodsman. A lot of work, a lot of fresh air and a lot of pancakes. Well, I know two out of three of those is true. Thank you for maintaining our forests.
NATIONAL DUMPLING DAY is served hot. Dumplings come in many forms. Some with chicken, some stuffed and some just fried. Pick your favorite and enjoy.
NATIONAL CHIMICHANGA DAY celebrates another of those delicious dishes that came about by accident. The founder of Macayo’s, a Mexican restaurant, accidentally dropped a burrito into a deep fryer and found out that he had created something quite good. Incidentally, chimichanga in English, translates to “thingamajig”.
NATIONAL PANCAKE DAY is so good, it has to be celebrated twice a year. Get your short stack on with some golden griddlecakes, some creamy butter, and some thick maple syrup.

Dear LORD, we ask that you watch those who watch over us – law enforcement. Keep them safe on the job and let each of them know that they are making a difference for the good and that nothing is worth taking your life over. I would also ask that you would be with those suffering from mesothelioma and their loved ones. Let them turn to you and not away. Thank you, Jesus, Amen.
