National Doctors’ Day is a day to recognize the contributions of physicians to our personal lives and communities. Winder, Georgia, observed the first Doctors Day on March 30, 1933. Dr. Charles B. Almond’s wife, Eudora Brown Almond, came up with the idea to have a day to honor doctors. It was originally celebrated by mailing cards and placing flowers on the graves of deceased doctors. Red carnations are often presented to doctors today because it represents representing love, charity, sacrifice, bravery, and courage. The red carnation is commonly used as the symbolic flower for National Doctors Day. On February 21, 1991, President George H.W. Bush proclaimed National Doctors Day to honor the Nation’s physicians for their dedication and leadership.
- National I am in Control Day
On March 30th in in 1981, the President was being rushed to surgery with a bullet lodged in his lung after an attempted assassination. His Secretary of State Alexander Haig said his famous quote, “As of now, I am in control here in the White House.” Haig later explained that he only meant that he was in charge until Vice President George Bush could be sworn in. Bush was en route at the time. That started this observance but over the years it has evolved to a day when people try to take control back in their lives. So whatever you feel is out of control, today is a good day to tackle it.
