October 3, 2014 – World Smile Day
As is well known Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts created the smiley face in 1963. That image went on to become the most recognizable symbol of good will and good cheer on the planet.
Harvey also created World Smile Day because he thought that we should devote one day each year to smiles and kind acts. Since that first World Smile Day® in 1999, it continues every year in Smiley’s hometown of Worcester, MA and around the world.
On World Smile Day® the theme is “Do an act of kindness. Help one person smile!”. You can even make your OWN Smile posters and stickers: http://www.worldsmileday.com/index.php/article-index/item/378-coloring-pages#
You can download, print, and color you own personal World Smile Day® poster and stickers.
Help make EVERYDAY World Smile Day!!!
All we are saying is give peace a chance. — John Lennon
SEPTEMBER 21 – International Peace Day
International Peace Day seeks a global cessation of violence and war. Each year on this day, celebrations are held in hundreds of countries, all with the same goal in mind….to stop war and violence. Created and sponsored by the United Nations, this day seeks to end war, starting today.
The goal for this day is “a day of non-violence and cease fire”. Wouldn’t it be nice if this day succeeded and spread, country by country, day by day, until there is no more war or violence. Can this goal ever succeed? Imagine.
September 11 – Day of Remembrance.
It is doubtful that anyone will ever forget where they were on the morning of September 11, 2001, upon hearing of the attacks on the twin World Trade Towers in NYC, the Pentagon in Washington and the crash in Pennsylvania. This horrible and tragic day is etched forever in our memories.

Like the attack on Pearl Harbor that brought us into World War II, the 9/11 attacks led us into a new war… the war on terrorism. It also touched and changed forever, the lives of each and every American.

Total Victim: 2,977
Victims in the towers: 2,606
