Every week can be Golden Week

In a Golden Week the days of the week represent the seven pillars of our society.

 

THE FIRST day of Golden week is Victory Day, a day for all artists. All people are artists and all people deserve to show leadership and to celebrate the victories of man through art and the ideas embedded within it.

 

THE SECOND day of Golden week is Labor Day, a day for all working men and for all working mothers.

 

THE THIRD day of Golden Week is for the family and the things that bind the family, namely the love and patience that comes from prayer and meditation.

 

THE FOURTH day of Golden Week is for the people whose devotion to political activity and organization forms the center of our civilization. Without political activity and organization there would be no order.

 

THE FIFTH day of Golden Week is for the earth and the universe that shelters it and the plants that grow on it and the scientists who study it all.

 

THE SIXTH day of Golden Week is for the children and the educators whose tireless effort passes our culture on to the next generation.

 

THE SEVENTH and final day of Golden week is for the brave people whose strength we all depend on for survival. Strength is within us all but the strongest among us are especially called to be strong for others and to protect those whose strength is not yet tempered enough to ensure the survival of our freedom. We can all become stronger with the help of Golden Week. We all deserve a week off. We all deserve time to think. We all deserve time to celebrate together.

What do gold bars, goldfish, golden retriever puppies, the golden temple, the golden eagle, the golden ratio, golden girls, a gold star and your golden ticket all have in common? They remind me of Golden Week. Count your gold, feed your goldfish, pet your golden retriever puppies, go visit the golden temple, admire a golden eagle or the golden ratio with a group of golden girls. Give yourself a gold star. You've got a golden ticket to celebrate the biggest bestest chunk of the universal holiday, Golden Week. Every week could be somebody's golden week. The universal holiday isn't about shutting down the world. It's about guaranteeing everyone the time we all need to think and to listen. We need to listen to ourselves and to each other, not just to our golden retriever puppies. We need to feed ourselves and each other, not just our goldfish. We need to visit each other, not just the golden temple. We need to admire ourselves and each other, not just the golden eagle or the golden ratio. Give yourselves a golden ticket to a better world. Help make every week a Golden week. Support calendar reform. If you support golden retriever puppies, support golden week. If you support goldfish, support golden week. If you support the golden eagle, support golden week. If you invest in gold, invest in golden week. If you admire the golden ratio, admire golden week. If you ever got a gold star in life, give golden week a try. A better world is within our reach.

Make your golden retriever puppies mascots for Golden week.
