Special Days Falling on November 6thLet’s look at the present and the future as well as the vivid and extraordinary past! Here are some of the biggest events taking place today.
International Day for Preventing the Exploitation of the Environment in War and Armed Conflict
As you probably know, habitats and the environment at large are at grave risk of mass damage through conflict and war. From rivers and plains to forests and oceans, can all be deeply affected by the consequences of war. Therefore, this occasion was created to encourage the protection of the environment – not just in the name of protecting the beautiful world around us, but in an attempt to encourage people to look beyond physical conflict, too. Maybe some day we can claw back the damage we’ve done through unnecessary wars.
Marooned Without a Compass Day
Marooned Without a Compass Day is celebrated on November 6th every year to shed a light on the direction we’re all going in. Or, in some cases, our lack of direction. Everyone is encouraged to take the time today to assess where they are in their lives, whether or not they are happy, and what they can do to move forward with their plans, projects, hopes, and dreams in the quest of achieving all they want.
