ANZAC Day :: April 25th

This is one of Australia's and New Zealand's most important holidays. They celebrate it like we celebrate Remembrance or Veteran's Day. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. ANZAC soldiers fought for their countries and won, but even more significant than this event is that they were all volunteers, including the 8,000 who died in battle.

Arbor Day :: Last Friday of April (In Most States)

Arbor means tree, which makes Arbor Day a fitting name for a holiday about trees. Arbor Day is on the last Friday in April in most US states, but some places celebrate this holiday at different times of the year. Over a hundred years ago, one guy, J. Sterling Morton, changed the Nebraska prairie into the tree-covered state it is today. He used his position as the editor of Nebraska's first newspaper to encourage others to keep planting trees. On the first Arbor Day, the people of Nebraska planted over one million trees.

i think the problem is just lack of understanding, and that we need to be taught to some extent about mental illnesses at school. depression - because its so common, but also the other mental illnesses that we don't hear about as often. a year ago, i confronted a friend about the possibility of me being depressed. i told this particular friend because we had a similar conversation the year before that. after i told her, she immediately responded with statements such as "you can't be because you seem so happy" and "try not to be". i think this stopped me from talking about it to any of my other friends since then, especially since some of them would make jokes about depression every once and a while.  i don't think any of my friends mean to be hurtful, its just they don't understand that depression is a serious illness that can't just go away. it effects you mentally, and physically. but people who treat and talk about depression in these ways only make it harder to seek help.
