I was just wondering because today is Pioneer day celebrated by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
It marks the day the Mormon pioneers first entered the Salt Lake Valley after being forced out of state after state by mobs. We honor their sacrifice they went through in crossing the plains.
It's also a state holiday in Utah, but they take a secular approach to it, and take the day to recognize people in the community who have blazed trails and helped others in their own way- modern pioneers; which I think is a pretty nice touch.
Now it's time to share yours - and happy pioneer day, I'm off to a pancake breakfast :)
Everyone be nice okay.
