We survived "The Day Without Women".
We survived "Black History Month".
We survived "Day without Immigrants".
Were these really necessary? Did they accomplish anything? Did it change anyones mind about anything? On either side of the Aisle? Anything? Anyone?
I do not understand the need to boycott or make a special day to commemorate a special minority of people. Secretaries day. Mothers Day. And my all time favorite to hate, Valentine's day.
Why is it that we must be dictated to set aside a day, week, month to recognize a minority of people living life and doing what they can?
Should we not recognize and appreciate these people evry single friggin day? Should we not share our thoughts and sentiments more than a day/week/month out of a year?
We aaaallllll know women are an integral part of life itself. I believe the last stat I saw was that women make up like 52% of the population. If every women disappears today, life would cease. Just as if every man on Earth vanished... life would cease.
As for the minority minority.... Blacks... they have contributed to societies just like everyone else. They, like every other group of people, have good and bad, productive and unproductive. Givers and takers. For those in society that need to have a day/week/month set aside to somehow be given permission to shar eyour feelings/sentiments for these people when the rest of the year you never give 'em a second look or misuse/abuse/look down on 'em, well, to hell with you all!
But for those like me who do not wait for a special time to express my sentiment and appreciation to those... lol maybe we should have a special day to be resognized for our achievement of recognizing people for their achievements 364 days of the year!
and to those who wisht o be recognized.... why do you wish to limit yourself? Why restrict your remand for acknowledgment to a simple day/week/month? You deserve so much more, and to be resognized all day everyday in some degree or another. If just a pat on the back, a "thanks for all you do", maybe even a flower or a piece of chocolate from time to time. I personally would enjoy that myself! As the growing minority of a white man over 40, soon it will be my groups turn to make such requests for a day/week/month. Five gets you ten that such demands will fall on deaf ears.
In summery, why are we content with limiting expression of sentiment, sharing of appreciation for one another, no matter the sex/race/etc etc? Let's do it EVERYDAY and to EVERYONE!
