As the school year begins each year we pick a day or 2 a month to celebrate. I’m not talking the usual, Birthday, Christmas, Easter and Mother’s Day, special days and there are so many more. As important as they all are – they are present giving celebrations. I am talking about those other days in the year that are designated special days where we observe, commemorate, promote or mobilize people to action. These special days serve and act as reminders to the world community of the issues we face as a collective.We use the UN calendar to pick our days.
