Life Goes On
Today, April 16 is Washington D.C. Emancipation Day...the day that Abraham Lincoln officially freed the slaves in Washington D.C. They were freed in 1982, many months before his national emancipation proclamation took place.
It is "Wear Your Pajamas to Work" day, a curiosity from the old life. Now, with so many working from home during this shelter-in-place, we probably set a record for those who were wearing PJs will working. I suppose that even those who sleep in their birthday suit would be able to wear their "pajamas" to work, as long as there are no video conferences to attend.
It is also "High Five" day, but we oughtn't to be doing that this year.
It is "Save the Elephant" day, not sure if that is sponsored by an environmental group or the GOP...you can decide for yourselves since the church isn't supposed to get mixed up in politics.
It is Eggs Benedict Day...and while it may be too late today for you to fix that for breakfast, maybe you can make it for yourself tomorrow morning...only a day late.
And it is "College Student Grief Awareness Day," a peer led program active on 50 college campuses (until recently) that encourages college students to grieve in healthy ways. One in three college students has experienced a recent loss of a loved one.
