Kev’s Daily Take On 10/11/2022

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

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE GIRL CHILD celebrates the young ladies of the world and all the beauty they bring to it.  This day is also about recognizing the challenges and obstacles faced by girls around the globe.  In some places the odds are really stacked against them. Whatever we can do to give them a hand in life can make a difference.

GENERAL PULASKI MEMORIAL DAY pays tribute to a patriot who started a brand-new branch of the Army.  Casimir Pulaski immigrated from Poland and later he joined the Continental army.  He quickly rose through the ranks, distinguishing himself on the field of battle and started the Cavalry.  He died on this date in 1779 from wounds suffered in battle.  Today he is known as the Father of the Cavalry.

NATIONAL FACE YOUR FEARS DAY comes at a good time of the year.  It seems Hollywood tries to outdo itself when it comes to scary movies at Halloween, reminding us of some of the things that make us cringe.  It is a great time to look that fear in the face, stare it down, and put it in its place.

SOUTHERN FOOD HERITAGE DAY celebrates the crispy and the Cajun.  Deep fried cooking, anything seasoned with creole spices, collard greens, grits, sweet tea, gumbo…the list of delicious comfort food goes on and on.  Get your southern accent and appetite ready for some good eating – don’t forget the pecan pie.

SAUSAGE PIZZA DAY brings a little kick with that pie.  Pork sausage, Italian sausage, or even beef sausage will do.  I have been known to put beef jerky on a pizza – it is actually pretty good. Enjoy a slice or two today.

Dear Heavenly Father, I would like to offer up prayer for those suffering with dementia, Alzheimer’s and other like conditions.  Break through their fog and let them know that they are loved and that they still matter.  It is heartbreaking to see loved ones who were once so alert and full of life go down this road.  May we find answers to these diseases so these wonderful people can be treated.  I ask this in your loving name, Jesus, Amen.
