World Down Syndrome Day is marked each year on March 21, beginning in 2006. The 21st day of March was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication of the 21st chromosome which causes Down Syndrome. The National Association for Down Syndrome can explain the relevance of colorful socks to mark this day.
It is my hope to get back into a little bit more of a routine as we move forward. In addition to all of the changes due to the coronavirus, I also had to engage in my own personal battle with Influenza A in the midst of all the chaos. That was certainly a reminder to not take good health for granted.
Reflection question for today:
Through the years you have probably given up a variety of things for Lent. Did you ever anticipate giving up going to church for Lent? Wow! These are strange times indeed.
Stay well my friends!
