National I Am In Control Day
Every year on March 30th, people can take the time to celebrate National I Am In Control Day. What is this holiday about? It’s a holiday on which people are encouraged to take control of their lives.
It’s a holiday that started after an assassination attempt on a U.S President but has since grown into a holiday on which people assess the situation around them and take control of their lives. It’s also a good day for people to take control of their health by starting a new exercise regimen or diet, or by visiting their doctor.
The History Of National I Am In Control Day
The origins of this holiday can be traced back to the attempted assassination of U.S President Ronald Reagan on March 30, 1981. The President had just suffered a wound in the attack, and then-Secretary of State Alexander Haig proclaimed that he was in control here. Although this phrase was part of a larger proclamation that attempted to instill confidence in the American people but was taken out of context. This would eventually create such an uproar that he had to resign.
While Alexander Haig’s statement and resulting backlash is now long forgotten, this holiday has persisted through all of these years-in a more positive context now. It’s a day on which people are encouraged to take control of their lives and move forward in a confident manner.
