If you knew that was this week, hurrah! If you didn’t – well, then you’re not alone.
A proclaimed “day” doesn’t fix anything. It doesn’t guarantee a moment in the press. It provides an opportunity to create awareness, education and discussion.
Too often, we wait for others to organize that awareness. Too often we wait to only do it on the proclaimed day. While mint Girl Guide cookies are a time-limited option each year, the chance to further discussion comes with every coffee break.
It’s ok to miss a date in the calendar. It’s never ok to wait another year to further a cause (which ever part of it appeals to you).
