National Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Day

  
National Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day is recognized on the fourth Thursday in April each year. This annual event is an educational program in the United States and Canada where parents take their children to work with them for one day. It is the successor of Take Our Daughters to Work Day which, in 2003, was expanded to include boys. Most companies allowed both girls and boys to participate since the beginning, renaming the day “Take Our Children to Work Day.”

National Titanic Remembrance Day

image

Each year on April 15th, National Titanic Remembrance Day is observed. This day is dedicated to the memory of when the Titanic sank into the icy waters of the North Atlantic Ocean in April, 1912. We remember the more than 1,500 people who died that day.

Known as the “the unsinkable ship”, the Titanic hit an iceberg at 11:40 pm April 14, 1912, on her maiden voyage from England to New York City. Later, in the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean, on April 15, 1912 the Titanic sank, along with those passengers still aboard that had been unable to escape, due to the insufficient amount of lifeboats on-board the ship.

There have been a few movies made about this subject. Most recently Titanic starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.

Purple Up!

April is Month of the Military Child, and this Friday is Purple Up! day. This initiative provides an opportunity for Americans to show their support for military families by wearing purple. The goal of ‘Purple Up!’ is for military youth to actually see the support in their school, youth groups and the community. The color purple was chosen as the signature color as it symbolizes all branches of the military.
