A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove…but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.
I know we are all busy with our careers becoming successful. But if you have children, what drives you to succeed? Is it not them? Who inspires you? Is it not your children? So why let work drive you away from them.
So, today, leave work at a reasonable hour. Turn off your blackberry. Go home and have dinner with you kids and enjoy some quality time we don’t all take advantage of because The National Center on Addictions and Substance Abuse (CASA) has declared the fourth Monday of September as Family Day, a day to eat dinner with your kids!
In 1986, American Business Women’s Day became a national holiday in order to recognize the female population in the work force. As they save, behind every powerful man is a woman. Same goes with business and organizations. Take this day to honor the women who make the organization what it is everyday.
By the President Ronald Reagan:
American business women have made significant and increasing contributions to our economy and to the competitiveness of the United States internationally. The need continues for American working women to expand their horizons, diversify their skills, and set high personal and career goals. The American Business Women’s Association, a national educational association, has greatly assisted in this effort. The Association awarded $2,900,000 in scholarships to over 6,000 women in 1984, and more than $18,000,000 in scholarships since 1949. The Association has more than 110,000 members and 2,100 chapters, throughout the United States. This organization has encouraged the many important contributions of American business women to our Nation’s continuing vitality.
The Congress, by Senate Joint Resolution 196, has designated September 22, 1986, as “American Business Women’s Day” and authorized and requested the President to issue a proclamation in observance of this event.
Now, Therefore, I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim September 22, 1986, as American Business Women’s Day
