October, Cancer, Violence, Popcorn and Dogs

Did you know that October has been celebrated as National Popcorn Poppin’ Month since Secretary of Agriculture Dan Glickman proclaimed it in 1999. October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Domestic Violence Awareness Month and National Adopt a Dog Month. What is the purpose of awareness months?

Do you think that months such as these really raise the awareness of breast cancer and domestic violence? Two members of my family are currently fighting cancer so I hope it does. Yet is it possible that people really eat more popcorn and adopt more dogs because of months like this? Color me perplexed? Maybe I am simply immune to stuff like this?

What do you think? Does awareness months educate you or motivate you to action?
