A Day Without Footwear

A Day Without Footwear

I've been too busy wallowing in my own self pity of getting older lately that I haven't noticed other socially needed events. Namely the Day Without Shoes cause on April 5th.
Millions of children grow up without shoes and at risk of infection and disease. One Day Without Shoes is the day we take off our shoes to raise awareness of the impact a pair of shoes can have on a child's life.

Well then, I'm glad that went the way it went. We can cross a problem off the list. That problem.... is solved! NEXT!

I'm pretty sure that for the vast majority of people a day without their Nike's would not be something they would like. No sir, I don't think so.

Besides, with the unemployment numbers in the high digits that they are, I'm pretty sure that a lot of people are surviving going bare footed trampling on the face of capitalism as it is.

You want to know what a cool thing to do is? Try walking around barefooted on a really cold day. It's really cool. Get it? But seriously, want to raise awareness of the impact of a pair of shoes can have? How about getting kicked in your ass some time. That will tell you how important a pair of shoes is.

I do have to wonder if this whole barefoot thing is a suppose to be some sort of health claim/concern. Or is it just an act of relatively harmless counterculture subversion? Oh no, those poor African kids don't have an Iphone?!! How would you like to live a day without your social media outlets and internet access in your finger tips!?!?
