It turns out Father’s Day was invented by a young, female entrepreneur. In 1910, 27-year old Sonora Dodd from Spokane, Washington, helped to create the first Father’s Day. Sonora drummed-up support for the idea, going to churches, the YMCA, shopkeepers, and government officials because she wanted to honor her father who raised her and her five siblings after her mother died in childbirth.
Thanks to Sonora’s advocacy and pioneering spirit, Father’s Day has become a celebration of the influence that fathers have on society. President Calvin Coolidge stated in 1924 that Father’s Day would “establish more intimate relations between fathers and their children” and “impress upon fathers the full measure of their obligations.”
“On July 2nd, World Heritage Species Day and the anniversary or Cecil's death, I am going to take a quiet minute and dedicate that 60 seconds to Cecil. I'm going to use that time to reflect on what this individual's death has meant for the world and its sentient beings. I urge you to do the same and reflect on what this has meant to you so we can summon up even more energy and honour this lion with actual change."
Please join us in remembering Cecil, tomorrow, July 2nd, at 18:00 (6pm) local time in Hwange, Zimbabwe. #CecilTheLion
