We have days for honoring military heroes, but why not a holiday to honor other people who risked their lives to protect and save their fellow man? Police. Fire fighters. Transplant donors. Rescuers from accidents and disasters. Extend gratitude to doctors, teachers, parents, too. If as a society we’re not going to pay these people as well as entertainers or athletes, shouldn’t we at least for a day honor them like celebrities and say thanks? Have it during the school year, not for the day off, but so kids in the days before can reflect on who’s truly important in our lives.
