International Day of the Disappeared

Monday, August 27th, 2012

dayIt seems as if with all of the available technology, finding someone would be easy. Doing a quick people search can help you find relatives, old classmates or friends. There are cases, however, when it seems as if loved ones fall off the face of the Earth and there is no hope of finding them.

What Is The International Day Of The Disappeared?

The International Day of the Disappeared was started with the hope of finding those lost in war, conflict, violence or no known cause. The hope is to bring together families and loved ones torn apart from life’s most unusual events. In many cases, those missing are military personnel, though they may also be civilian victims of the war as well. This annual day of remembrance held on August 30th highlights the struggles of loved ones, and recognizes the importance of finding and bringing home the missing. Volunteers and others devoted to the cause have made it a point to offer services in many countries of the world.

labor dayOn the first Monday in September people all across the United States enjoy a little extra time away from their jobs as we celebrate Labor Day. It’s a great holiday to share with friends and family as we start to say farewell to the summer.

The origin of Labor Day goes back to the time of the American Industrial Revolution. It was first celebrated in New York City on September 5th, 1882 by members of the Central Labor Union.

By 1894 it had gained so much attention that it was turned into a national holiday.
