We know that most places will NOT be close today. Besides for federal offices and schools at most places this day is business as usual. In fact, event though it is a holiday a lot of places will be promoting. This is the day they use to drive up their sales. President Day is one of first things we honored as a nation. Little by little the things we use to value are going away.
To most of us, who have this extra day off it is an opportunity to get in some things around the house; most will not take this day off to rest.
This holiday was started in recognition of the first President of the USA, George Washington. Now is the day chosen to recognize President Washington and Lincoln both. They both contributed a lot to the country, which is why this day was chosen.
Can you be recognized for your contribution to the world? The work you are doing today, who will benefit many? Will others remember you for what you have done? President Washington and President Lincoln are being honored for their work in the building of this country. You don’t have to lead a country to follow their example, just contribute and make a change by the thing we do in life. Think about it.
