Kev’s Daily Take On 09/29/2022

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

NATIONAL VFW DAY proudly proclaims all of the good that this great organization does.  Made up of this nation’s largest force of combat vets, Veterans of Foreign Wars Posts all across the country provide veteran assistance, youth scholarships and numerous benefits to their communities.  They “continue to honor the dead by helping the living”.

MICHAELMAS is a Catholic feast that celebrates the Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Rafael.  On this day, families get together, give to charity, celebrate with song and dance and have a feast that culminates in the eating of blackberries.  Why blackberries?  Tradition holds that when Michael threw Lucifer out of heaven, he landed on a blackberry bush.

WORLD HEART DAY reminds us to take care of our tickers.  Once they stop, that’s it.

URBAN NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE DAY encourages us to get outside and visit these parks that are close to urban areas.  Plenty of recreation and education are what these scenic places have to offer.
