Today was created by Claudia A. Evalt after the loss of her brother and sister. It is supported by 22 governors and then President, Bill Clinton. Not everyone is lucky enough to have brothers and sisters, yes… I know we call everyone brother or sister but it’s not the same as an actual blood relation. In most cases we grow up with them, play with them, learn from them, teach them, and generally they are close in support when needed. Those that do not have brothers or sisters can’t really relate. That’s not saying anything against them, but how can they. A brother and a sister can be your best friend, or worst enemy, but they were there for your real learning stages and know what it means to share. I adore my sisters, they are key to my life and even though I don’t get to see them as often as I would like, they are there, and always have been (and hopefully always will be!)
How to celebrate – Take a sibling to lunch today. Get together with them on a regular basis even if its just to keep up. Remember they are blood relations; there are fewer things in life that mean more.
