This is the fourth Sunday for the month of July 2019 which means it is Parents Day. A number of web-sources (including National Day AKA ND) ) concur, "National Parents’ Day honors all parents on the fourth Sunday in July. No matter where our parents may be, this day serves to celebrate their important role in our lives.
ND (and other web-pages) also claim "President Bill Clinton established National Parents’ Day in 1994 when he signed Congressional Resolution (36 U.S.C. § 135) into law. The recognized the '…uplifting, and supporting the role of parents in the rearing of children.' Republican Senator Trent Lott introduced the bill. "
I am honoring the holiday by posting a copy (atop this entry) of a Peanuts Comic Strip which was published long before (8-1-1978) Clinton created a holiday for parents. The strip paints a picture of how a relationship between a parent and child can be.
But Parents Day is also for the birds, for when it comes to the avian community, both parents play a significant role in rearing their young,
A prime example of this can be seen in the next series of images featuring a Canadian Goose and Canadian Gander spending a summer evening (in Central Park) with their goslings.
A few of the photos that are posted directly above are featured with a back story that is included within volume two of my book series, Words In Our Beak.
You will find many instances of the parenting skills within all three volumes of my book series.
