Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

To All Dads & Moms ...


Without parents none of us would be here. For every newborn, teenager, young adult, adult and senior citizen there is/was a father and a mother. With either title comes a tremendous amount of responsibility accepted forthrightly by some, reluctantly by others. Yet, either is totally unavoidable. Even for those who may not be parents themselves, they had parents who had parents who had parents and so on. Each of us has friends or relatives that are parents. Even though with each subsequent year comes celebration of Mother's Day in May and Father's Day in June, the upcoming day of celebration is for parents collectively occurring on the fourth Sunday of July every year.

A bit of Parents' Day History...
In the United States, Parents' Day is held on the fourth Sunday of every July. This was established in 1994 when President Bill Clinton signed a Congressional Resolution into law (36 U.S.C. § 135) for "recognizing, uplifting, and supporting the role of parents in the rearing of children." The bill was introduced by Republican Senator Trent Lott. It was supported by members of the Unification Church which also celebrates a holiday called Parents' Day, although on a different date. Parents' Day is celebrated throughout the United States. United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has said: "Replacing Mother's Day and Father's Day with a Parents' Day should be considered as an observance more consistent with a policy of minimizing traditional sex-based differences in parental roles."
