NATIONAL REACH AS HIGH AS YOU CAN DAY
National Reach as High as You Can Day is observed annually on April 14th.
We can define “reach” many ways. Search Guinness World Records for “highest reach” and Guinness gives us 322 results. We can reach for our dreams or our goals. Reach for the stars or the sky. We can even reach for the balloon floating away from us much like the one that carried the Wizard of Oz away from Dorothy.
Of course, records can be set for the oldest or the youngest to reach a particular location, age, height or status.
While this day may not be about setting records, it is certainly about reaching high; higher than we think we can. We often become complacent. National Reach as High as You Can Day is just a reminder on the calendar not to let your dreams go adrift. Reach for them. Reach as high as you can!
