We should all be thankful for the many freedoms we are afforded.
This day was envisioned as a way for all to take a moment to appreciate how lucky they are to enjoy the founding principle of Freedom!
Why is Freedom Day Important?
It’s a day of appreciation
It was established with the hopes of promoting goodwill, fairness, and equality.
One thing likely to put a positive spin on your day is taking a moment to appreciate all the freedoms we enjoy daily.
When you’re appreciating — think small! Think about your freedom of speech. What about the freedom to practice whatever religion you want?
Take today to appreciate all the freedoms that we take for granted day in and day out!
It keeps us rooted in what matters
With war, unrest, and worse, in so many parts of the world, a Nation’s established history of habitually recognizing ‘freedom’ makes living in that Nation — a blessing and a unique opportunity.
Marks the 1st day of Black History month
In February we enter Black History Month on an appreciative and positive note, and we get to spend the entire month of February, recognizing some incredible achievements.
