Today August twenty second is BE AN ANGEL DAY” to bring an awareness
Of this in all and make the society sacred and noble for peace and harmony

In many religions, angels are supernatural spirits that are thought to be
Responsible for protecting humans.The day reminds us that even though we
Can’t be actual angels, we can emulate the kindness they are known for.
Being kind and good to our fellow human beings is not hard or difficult.

All we need to do is to stop thinking about ourselves and think about
How we can make the world a nicer and kinder place and act in that spirit
Showing love and affection to all those whom we come across at least on this day
Let us enjoy the day in a manner befitting ! God shows compassion for all!
