Father’s Day celebrates the contribution that fathers and father figures make for their children’s lives. I’ve never really researched how Father’s day came about so I searched and found this little tidbit.
A woman named Sonora Smart Dodd was an influential figure in the establishment of Father’s Day. Her father, American Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart, raised six children by himself after the death of their mother. This was uncommon at that time, as many widowers placed their children in the care of others or quickly married again.
Sonora was inspired by the work of Anna Jarvis, who had pushed for Mother’s Day celebrations. Sonora felt that her father deserved recognition for what he had done. The first time Father’s Day was held in June was in 1910. Father’s Day was officially recognized as a holiday in 1972 by President Nixon.

I ran across this story on Upworthy.com and thought it was incredible. Not just the idea but that the idea and passion for saving the planet is coming from someone so young. I found it very inspiring.
