May 6th is Childhood Depression Awareness Day

Millions of American children experience persistent sadness and hopelessness. They may withdraw from friends and family, perform poorly in school, act out in anger or stop participating in activities they once enjoyed. The National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI) is trying to get the word out that these children may be suffering from a serious illness called depression.

Childhood Depression Awareness Day (also known as Green Ribbon Day) which will be supported in communities throughout the country. Promoted around the theme "What's the Matter?" Childhood Depression Awareness Day is designed to educate parents, teachers and other caregivers about the widespread occurrence of depression among American youth.

"Children can and do get depressed," said Laurie Flynn, NAMI executive director. "But by intervening early and providing appropriate education and support, we literally can save lives."

As many as one in 33 children and one in eight adolescents may suffer from depression, according to statistics released by the U.S. Center for Mental Health Services. Moreover, if left untreated, the results of depression can be fatal, including suicide-the leading cause of death among adolescents.

Supported by the leading national mental health and advocacy organizations, national Childhood Depression Awareness Day seeks to increase public awareness of depression in youth and serve as a call to action to help eradicate this highly treatable illness.

May 6th is No Diet Day

A day dedicated to raising awareness of how unhealthy dieting can be harmful, or respecting and accepting body types, and promoting healthy eating rather than dieting. No Diet Day aims to help to teach people to have a healthy relationship with food, and to ditch restrictive diets and the harmful results they often have, such as anorexia and body-type perceptions in the media.

May 6th is Buddah Day

Buddha Day is also known as Vesak Day, or Teacher’s Day. Buddhists celebrate today as the Buddha’s (Shakyamuni) Birthday. It is considered by most to be the most important day in Buddhism and most Buddhists spend the day in contemplation of the Buddha’s life and enlightenment. Celebrations outside the temples often involve ceremonial bird releases and some local traditions or culture into the festivities.

Celebrations at the temples often involve guest speakers as well as chanting and praying and offerings to the Buddha statue (usually vegetarian in line with Buddhist beliefs) in respect for his life and teachings.

There are various regional variations in the dates upon which Buddha Day is observed (varying in the Gregorian calendar between April and May) – for simplicity we have focused on the most commonly celebrated date in all east Asian countries (excluding Japan), which occurs on the 8th day of the 4th month in the Chinese lunar calendar.

May 6th is National Teacher Day

It’s National Teacher Day! Have you ever had a teacher who inspired you, challenged you, or even changed the course of your life? Today is the day to show your appreciation for all the remarkable individuals who have dedicated their lives to teaching. 

In 1944, an Arkansas teacher named Mattye Whyte Woodridge began a campaign to establish a national day that would honor teachers. Woodridge wrote letters to politicians, education leaders, and eventually the first lady, Eleanor Roosevelt. In 1953, Mrs. Roosevelt convinced Congress to proclaim the first National Teacher Day.

Today, the National Education Association sponsors an entire Teacher Appreciation Week, which is full of events and activities. Learn more about the campaign on the official website.

To celebrate National Teacher Day, participate in one of the projects and take a moment to honor the remarkable individuals who have taught you or your children over the years!

Favorite Birthday Boy for May 6th

 George Clooney
From: Favorite Hunks & Other Things
 I have to be honest, George Clooney the movie star is not a favorite of mine. I have always wondered whether he appeals more to women than men. Although I must admit I have not seen George's award winning Michael Clayton, I have yet to see a movie he has made since leaving ER that I have enjoyed. That being said I did LOVE the television star George Clooney. Doug Ross on ER was one of the most complex, flawed well written characters on television. Clooney played him to perfection. I am not sure he has played as complicated a character since he left the show. I also enjoyed the Clooney on The Facts Of Life, Roseanne and Sisters. So this post is wishing the television star George Clooney a happy 53rd!

 George Timothy Clooney (born May 6, 1961) is an American actor, film director, producer, and screenwriter. He has received three Golden Globe Awards for his work as an actor and two Academy Awards—one for acting and the other for producing. Clooney is also noted for his political activism and has served as one of the United Nations Messengers of Peace since January 31, 2008.

 Clooney made his acting debut on television in 1978, and later gained wide recognition in his role as Dr. Douglas "Doug" Ross on the long-running medical drama ER from 1994 to 1999, for which he received two Emmy Award nominations. While working on ER, he began attracting a variety of leading roles in films, including Batman & Robin (1997) and Out of Sight (1998), in which he first worked with long-term collaborator Steven Soderbergh. In 1999 Clooney took the lead role in Three Kings, a well-received war satire set during the Gulf War. In 2001, Clooney's fame widened with the release of his biggest commercial success, Ocean's Eleven, the first of a profitable film trilogy, a remake of the 1960 film which starred members of the Rat Pack with Frank Sinatra as Danny Ocean. He made his directorial debut a year later with the 2002 biographical thriller Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, and has since directed Good Night, and Good Luck (2005), Leatherheads (2008), and The Ides of March (2011). He won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the Middle East thriller Syriana (2005) and subsequently gained Best Actor nominations for such films as Michael Clayton (2007), Up in the Air (2009) and The Descendants (2011). In 2013, he received the Academy Award for Best Picture for producing the film Argo, alongside Ben Affleck and Grant Heslov. He is the only person ever to be nominated for Academy Awards in six different categories.

 In 2005, TV Guide ranked Clooney #1 on its "50 Sexiest Stars of All Time" lists.

 Clooney's humanitarian work includes his advocacy of finding a resolution for the Darfur conflict, raising funds for the 2010 Haiti earthquake, 2004 Tsunami, and 9/11 victims, and creating documentaries such as Sand and Sorrow to raise awareness about international crises. He is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

 Clooney was born in Lexington, Kentucky, in 1961. His mother, Nina Bruce (nΓ©e Warren, 1939–), is a former beauty pageant queen. His father, Nick Clooney, is a former anchorman, as well as a game show and American Movie Classics host. Clooney's ancestry includes Irish, German, English, and more distant Scottish and Dutch roots. His patrilineal line traces back to Nicholas Clooney (of County Kilkenny) and Bridget Byron, his great-great-grandparents, who emigrated to the United States from Ireland. His maternal four times great-grandmother, Mary Ann Sparrow, was the half-sister of Nancy Hanks (Nancy Hanks was the mother of President Abraham Lincoln). Clooney has an older sister, Adelia (commonly known as Ada); his cousins include actors Miguel and Rafael Ferrer, who are the sons of his aunt, singer Rosemary Clooney, and actor JosΓ© Ferrer. He is also related to another singer, Debby Boone, who married his cousin Gabriel Ferrer (son of JosΓ© Ferrer and Rosemary Clooney).

 Clooney was raised a strict Roman Catholic. He began his education at the Blessed Sacrament School in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky. Spending part of his childhood in Ohio, he attended St. Michael's School in Columbus, then between 1968 and 1974 Western Row Elementary School (a public school) in Mason, Ohio and St. Susanna School in Mason, where he also served as an altar boy, before the Clooneys moved to Kentucky when George was midway through the seventh grade. “George and his sister were always very conscious of social issues, and his parents were strong influences on the person he is today,” said John Romer, who served as a St. Susanna altar boy alongside George. “George would strongly defend his positions and argue logically and passionately . . . But George was never combative. He was the person you wanted to be with and laugh with.

In middle school, Clooney developed Bell's palsy, a debilitating condition that partially paralyzes the face. The malady went away within a year. "That was the worst time of my life," he told the Daily Mirror in 2003. "You know how cruel kids can be. I was mocked and taunted, but the experience made me stronger."

After his parents moved to Augusta, Kentucky, Clooney attended Augusta High School. He has stated that he earned all As and a B in school, and was an enthusiastic baseball and basketball player. He tried out to play professional baseball with the Cincinnati Reds organization in 1977, but was not offered a contract. He did not pass the first round of player cuts. He attended Northern Kentucky University from 1979 to 1981, majoring in Broadcast Journalism, and very briefly attended the University of Cincinnati, but did not graduate from either. He had odd jobs such as selling women's shoes, selling insurance door-to-door and cutting tobacco.
