I pledge to send...
On May 1, 2021
MAY DAY has two meanings.
#1 - Since the 1920's MAYDAY, MAYDAY has been distress call used by pilots to signal an emergency situation.
#2 - MAY DAY is also celebration of the ancient festival of Spring - a time of hope and renewal.
The events of the past year, to include the pandemic and its attendant social and economic upheaval, as well as racial tension, civil unrest, natural disasters, and more - have led to distress in one form or another for all of us. We're certainly in need of much hope, renewal, and a load of happiness!
Hence the idea for #MAYDAYMESSAGES
Let's share some HOPE and RENEWAL and deliver as much HAPPINESS as we can through simple, kind text messages.
#MAYDAYMESAGES - May 1, 2021
