Did you ever think about how a cause, special day or topic gets assigned? How do they decide to assign National Grandparents Day, Fall Hat Month (yes this is real), or Black History Month officially? Well, until January 1995, Congress had the task of seeing that special observances were commemorated. The Senate or the House would introduce legislation to whatever they thought was worthy of National recognition. The task became too much for Congress to handle, time wise, so they decided to discontinue this process.
So who does it now? The president of course can declare any commemorative event but it is rare. In some states the legislatures and governor may proclaim days and so may Mayors. Most of the time these special days, weeks, months come from National Organizations wanting to promote visibility of their cause. But we too as individuals can petition a cause and color selection to go with it.
Awareness Ribbons have become such a huge association for any given cause. Why not? Many of us relate very strongly to color. Color often helps us identify certain things in our life. Green = Go, Red = Stop, Pink = Breast Cancer Awareness, etc. Color can be used to create an awareness of a condition, disease, or a cause. It so important these days to increase awareness any way we can. Awareness can save lives!
