There are actually several dates for Reconciliation Day in different places. In 1989, Ann Landers responded to a letter about broken relationships and the need for a special day of reconciliation. Then, in 1992, another reader asked that it be made into an annual event. Landers, and her readers, thought it was a great idea, and so it continues (read both letters here).
Obviously, today is the day to mend your bridges and reconnect with those who you’ve “fallen out” with (I’ve always thought it should be “I had a falling out from so-and-so,” not “with so-and-so,” but it seems I’m wrong!). The point is not to figure out who’s to blame, but just to apologize, and try again. In other words, it’s one of the simplest, easiest, and yet most complicated and most difficult actions in the world. Good luck!
“The Lord said to me, ‘Go, show your love to your wife again, though she is loved by another man and is an adulteress. Love her as the Lord loves the Israelites, though they turn to other gods and love the sacred raisin cakes.'”
P.S. April 2 is also National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day as well as International Children’s Book Day. I suppose if you can reconcile with someone over a couple of PB&J’s and a good kid’s book, you’d have this made!
