It’s Global Handwashing Day. You might think of this as, well, an obvious thing to do, but when you have areas like Puerto Rico where currently 30 to 40% has no running water, handwashing is a premium. How incredibly sad that one of the easiest and most effective ways to prevent disease is unable to be done in places like Puerto Rico without potentially exposing yourself to contaminated waters.
On a side note, aren’t the mascots cute?

For those of us in the U.S., most of us know today as Columbus Day. But pizza wins every time. Yum, yum!

Misaki is known as the man-hating Demon President of Seika High. But this “demon” has a secret: she works at a maid café! What will happen to her now that the only person who can match — and surpass — Misaki’s brains and brawn discovers her secret? (more…)
This was supposed to be dedicated to the victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and elsewhere, and I hope we don’t let the latest news make us neglect that almost the entire island is without power and over 50% of people don’t have drinking water. It’s National Child Health Day, and, unfortunately, children and adults are suffering. It’s also World Habitat Day, and many people are without homes.
But… I can’t even… 50+ dead, 400+ injured in a mass shooting in Las Vegas? Today is supposed to be the International Day of Non-Violence, and now we have the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
Just go hug someone today. Your parents, your friends, your pets, someone. If you can read this, remember your blessings.
