Taking part each September, Respect Day has been created to encourage people to focus more on ways in which they can be respectful to others.  For many the day involves being more attentive to loved ones, but it can really be used as a catalyst for treating any people with a more polite approach.  There are no rules surrounding ways in which you could celebrate this year, it’s really down to you. You could take your wife or husband out for a romantic meal, you could visit an elderly relative or you could endeavour to be more encouraging to others.

We are constantly juggling a menu of responsibilities: home, school, kids, meals, work, community and more. We know this because we see it piling up on their calendars, shopping lists and to do lists every day. With life this hectic, it’s impossible to stay on top of everything all the time, but it IS possible to get the mission-critical stuff under control. I’m On Top Of It Day is all about celebrating one thing that you feel good about getting on top of.

Traditionally, Labor Day consists of parades, followed by gatherings of workers with their families and friends. Labor Day also marks the unofficial end of summer, and it is around this time that students go back to school, and fall sports begin. It honors the American labor movement, and the contributions that workers have made to the country. Starting in 1882, labor days first began being organized and celebrated by labor unions, and Oregon became the first state to make Labor Day an official public holiday in 1887.

On August 28, 1963, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., Martin Luther King Jr. gave what would come to be known as his "I Have A Dream" speech. King's speech was a call to America to live up to the words of its founding documents, a longing for a dream of racial harmony, and an appeal for freedom to ring out from every part of the country.

In Navajo culture, the passing of the moon over the sun is an intimate moment in which the sun is reborn and tribal members take time out for themselves. No talking. No eating or drinking. No lying down. No fussing. It's a time of renewal. Kind of like pressing the alt, control, delete button on your computer, resetting everything.

The WIFFLE ball was designed to take the place of baseball, stickball and softball for boys and girls in back yards and city streets. It is made of a tough rubbery plastic – is light in weight and cannot be thrown or hit any great distance. The WIFFLE ball is also an excellent indoor ball. WIFFLE ball was designed for use in congested areas. Because the ball will not travel far when solidly hit, ball chasing and base running have been eliminated. An ordinary broom handle can be used if a WIFFLE bat is not available

The fishing tribes are given credit for the naming of this Moon, since sturgeon, a large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water, were most readily caught during this month. A few tribes knew it as the Full Red Moon because, as the Moon rises, it appears reddish through any sultry haze. It was also called the Green Corn Moon or Grain Moon.
