I think this is a great idea! Although some may disagree with calling
attention to boys' issues in our society for only one day - it is still one
day - more than is called attention to now! I know there is a backlash
against "take our daughters to work" - some may think as John Meyer's does
that this is a glorified field trip - it still has validity! Unfortunately
days like these (as well as "black history month" or "women's history
month") are still needed since our society is still lacking so much in
cultural (as well as gender) appreciation!!! "Reclaim our Sons" should be
done every day - but so shouldn't "Black History" and "Women's History"!!!!
