On today you should celebrate those friends you have, remember those friends you’ve lost and try to make new friends. The day was created by the U.S. Congress in 1935, just prior to World War 2 starting. In 1997 the United Nations named Winnie the Pooh as their ambassador of friendship across the globe. (Some how it figures the UN would use a fictitious character to support friendship!) Anyway, friends are important, they enrich our lives and lend us support when we need it… and they are just cool to hang with when we don’t.
How to celebrate – Gather your friends around you today for a cook out or any meal you choose. Go out and try to make new friends. Remember those friends you’ve lost. (The best times, not the worse)
