July Recognitions

It is July and we are exactly halfway through 2022. July 1 is the 182nd day of the year. We are also in the heart of summer, the busiest summer vacation month of the year.

July 4, Independence Day, is the anniversary of the United States Declaration of Independence. In 1776, Thomas Jefferson drafted the declaration of Independence, and it was approved by all 13 colonies on July 4, 1776. Did you know both John Adams, our 2nd president, and Thomas Jefferson, our 3rd president, died in 1826 on July 4th, 5 hours apart from one another?

July 8 is Liberty Bell Day, which rang signaling the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence.

July 9, Martyrdom of the BÁB, is of the Baha’ faith and is in observance of the execution in 1850 of Siyyid ‘Alí-Muhammad, the Báb, the prophet-herald of the Bahá’í Faith.

July 9 until July 10th is Eid al-Adha, a Muslim holy festival celebrated with family time, exchanging gifts, and marks the end of the annual pilgrimage to Mecca, and honors Ibrahims’ sacrifice of his son.

July 13 is Dharma Day, where Buddhists commemorate the Buddha’s first teaching, the “turning of the wheel of the Dharma” teaching the Four Nobel Truths.

July 14, Bastille Day, is a national holiday in France, and a celebration in America by French Americans for their rights and freedom. Americans honor France being the first country to support the US in the American Revolutionary War.

July 18 is Nelson Mandela International Day. Mandela was the first black president of South Africa and worked to stop apartheid, institutional racism and worked to bring people together. “Do what you can, with what you have, wherever you are.” https://www.mandeladay.com/

July 27 is National Korean War Veterans Armistice Day, where we recognize and pay tribute to Korean War veterans of the Korean War. In 1950 North Korea invaded South Korea and in 1953, the war ended with the signing of the Korean Armistice Agreement.

July 26, ADA Day, commemorates the signing into law of the Americans with Disabilities Act in 1990, which guarantees equal opportunity for people with disabilities. This day is meant to bring attention to the importance of promoting equal opportunity.

July 30, National Support Public Education Day, is a day to acknowledge education as a basic human right, helping to prepare children and unifying diverse populations while promoting equity. Public schools mirror our values, and deserve all our support.

We hope your July is good to you and it gives you time to enjoy a bit of the summer, connecting with one another in the simple ways that bring us all together.
