October 3 is National Child Health Day, which was proclaimed by President Clavin Coolidge in 1928 to call on people to take care of children’s health.
Before the mid 19th century, there were not enough facilities dedicated to treat the wellness of children.
By the 1860s, the hospitals started to establish specialized clinics for children. They also provided food and clothes to those who cannot afford them.
The philosophy of these hospitals was that even though some parents made bad choices, the children were innocent, and it was not their fault.
In the late 19th century, children’s hospitals became more common across the country. The healthcare system improved a lot when more and more kids were being cared for.
These young generations are the hope of the future, so we need to always look after the health of each child.
Relationships are a two-way street. Our acts of sincerity and kindness can be transmitted by simply helping others, whether they are animals or humans.
October 4 is World Animal Day, which aims to enhance awareness and improve the welfare of animals.
This celebration fell for the first time in Berlin by Heinrich Zimmerman, the publisher of German animal lovers’ magazine.
Additionally, today is also called the feast day of Saint Francis of Assisi, a day where we acknowledge his compassion for all the animals and living things.
No matter what animal you like, in the moment of looking at them, you can see the pure light in their eyes. At the same time, those lovely animals can also feel your love toward them.
When an animal rests their little head on your hands, arms or shoulders, you can certainly find that life is worth living.
Today not only makes us love our own animals, but also allows us to care for the balance of our ecosystems.
Each year on the first Wednesday in October, it is International Walk To School Day.
This annual holiday was first launched in Britain in the early 1990s. In 1997, a business called a Walkable America started to promote this event in North America.
October has the best cool weather, which offers students around the globe an opportunity to walk to school and get some exercises.
The mission of this celebration is to create a better environment and community, enjoy physical activity to stay healthy, and solve the traffic congestion issue.
Therefore, use today to take a walk with your friends and breathe in some fresh air on a beautiful morning.
Sports are a crucial part for each person’s growth and development, both physically and mentally.
By participating in different sports teams, you will not only meet some life-long relationships with your teammates, but you will also gain a wide variety of skills and experiences.
However, all the extraordinary achievements in our athletic career cannot be reached without supportive and enthusiastic coaches standing behind us.
October 6 is National Coaches Day.
Take advantage of today to express gratitude for all your amazing coaches. You can give them a bouquet of flowers, write an appreciation letter, get them a FrontPage Story or just easily stop by their office and say “thank you.”
Forgiving someone does not mean that you are weak. On the contrary, it turned out to be the best way to heal a fractured relationship.
October 7, which is National Forgiveness & Happiness Day, reminds us to let all the negativities go away and embrace happiness.
Robert Moyers and the Worldwide Forgiveness Alliance created this religiously related holiday, with the purpose of “to do the will of God each day and to love one another as God loves us”.
Moreover, the organization also came up with the idea of asking God to provide us the courage and strength to forgive other people.
If you do not believe in God, that is okay, but today is very important to you as well.
Forgiveness might become one of the hardest things for many people, but only if we let things go, will we obtain more energy to meet eternal joy.
