Today we celebrate just a couple of things, one of them is, in my opinion, far more important than the other:

National Caviar Day – This is a very expensive, seafood delicacy. Caviar is the fancy word for fish eggs. It is true that, caviar is not just any fish's eggs, but only comes from sturgeon captured in the Caspian or Black Sea. It is so expensive because there are bans on fishing for this type of fish because of a dwindling supply. I say let the fish keep their eggs and live their lives. I can think of a whole lot of things that are more appetizing to eat.

Nelson Mandela International Day – This is Nelson Mandela's birthday and was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2009 for the purpose of calling people all over the world to take 67 minutes of time to help others in their community.  If enough people take the time to help others we will succeed in changing the world, one community at a time. The 67 minutes comes from the 67 years that Nelson Mandela spent devoting his life to helping people  “as a human rights lawyer, a prisoner of conscience, an international peacemaker and the first democratically elected president of a free South Africa.”

To celebrate today, have some caviar while you tell your kids about Nelson Mandela’s amazing life.
