I still like this story and article: my wonderful Aunt, Alma Reeck, thought my brother, Jerry, and I would benefit by a trip to Washington, D.C. to learn about our government in the capitol. So in May, 1961, she and Jerry flew from Seattle to New York City, where I was living. There, she picked up a new car at a Nash garage on the Upper West Side and we were off to Washington, D.C. to meet our representatives and to see the monuments.
MY PROPOSAL FOR IMMEDIATE ACTION? I suggest that on each March and September equinox, we all shake hands intentionally. With whom? Your classroom. The grocery clerk. Your boss. Your employees. Your family. Your dog. The GOAL; every human being and many other animals in the world receives and RETURNS A HANDSHAKE. Simple, but elegant. "GLOBAL HANDSHAKE DAY."
The Equinox adds more meaning to the global handshake: an acknowledgement that the warm sun shines equally on north and south. TUESDAY, MARCH 20, 2017: GLOBAL HANDSHAKE DAY. Agreed?
I THANK YOU for helping to launch this worldwide ritual. Click below on a "share" tab. Let it go viral, globally. Watch for the next GLOBAL HANDSHAKE DAY.
P.S. Hand shakes spread germs. Wash your hands for 20 seconds.
