Today is Parent's Day

This is Parents’ Day — an annual public observance similar to Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, but not an official holiday. Its goal is to pay tribute to the men and women whose devotion to children strengthens families and society in general, whether they are actual parents or parental figures.
Among the many activities of the day, “Parents of the Year” will be honored at local, state and national levels.
As America changes demographically, the role of parents remains the same — to nurture children.
Indicative of those changes is the fact that just over half of the nation’s children younger than one year are minorities.
