Just in case you haven't noticed, the political climate in the United States is front-and-center in the news with a big election right around the corner. Nov. 4 is Use Your Common Sense Day, a trait many of our elected and wanna-be public officials seem to lack these days!
This annual "holiday" was created by motivational speaker and author, Bud Bilanich, in an effort to encourage folks to use their common sense in all walks of life. Touted as "The Common Sense Guy," Bilanich selected Nov. 4 because it commemorates a birthday of one of America's most famous humorist and sensible guy, Will Rogers.
Common sense is something most of us have although we don't always use. Merriam-Webster defines it as "the ability to think and behave in a reasonable way and to make good decisions." Common sense not only helps us in our personal life and careers, it also helps keep us safe.
Nov. 4 is also National Candy Day! Sweet!
