International Day of Friendship

30 Jul


 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!


Of all of the important holidays I can tell you about, today seems to be the most important in my book.  It is International Day of Friendship.  The world is filled with too much hate, too many wars, too much prejudice and way too many disagreements.  Today, we should put all of that aside and reach out to each other and say, “Hello friend happy friendship day!”

This is just not a backyard problem or a school playground problem.  This is a worldwide problem.  A problem that needs to come to an end.  Everyone has differences – we wouldn’t be individuals if we didn’t.  But when you look down to it, we all want to be happy and what better way than to get along.

Today let’s make friends with different people, different cultures and different countries.  Extend your hand – or an olive branch – and say hello friend.  Say hello to your neighbor, to the stranger at the market and say hello to a person that you see everyday but you don’t even know their name.  Today is the day to make a friend near and far.

To all of our friends, we at the Hotel Thompson would like to say thank you for being our friend – happy friendship day.  And to those that don’t know us yet, Happy Friendship Day.  May we get to know you better today and in the future!

 Who will YOU say hello friend to today?

    This is an Important Post! The world is so full of hate and most terrible thinks happen every day, so many innocents die because of hate. Everything starts from one person, so just say “Hello friend!”.

    Happy Friend Day friend! I was at Sears today and rode down to the basement in a freight elevator…very slow. A lady joined me in the elevator. We had a lovely chat…what a nice woman. When the elevator finally hit the basement we both said our goodbyes, she went right and I went left. A fun diversion from my schedule.
