Today we are supposed to celebrate our friends all over the world. The first country in the world to suggest this was the US who began practicing it in 1919. The UN made it an international day in 2011, nearly 100 years later. When people suggest that the US is not friendly towards other countries they ought to look at history, though I know that’s not very popular today because everyone thinks the media tells the only history we need to know. The truth of the matter is, we are repeating history even now we are just too stupid to know it. So as you celebrate the International Day of Friendship just remember where it began.
How to celebrate – Contact a friend in another country. Make a friend in another country. Learn from history so you don’t make the same mistakes that were made before.
