Over the years we have been fortunate to have received proclamations for Siblings Day from the governors of 49 states, with only California as the exception. In 2014, new first time proclamations were received from Minnesota issued by Governor Mark Dayton; North Dakota issued by Jack Dalrymple and South Dakota issued by Governor Dennis Gaugaard. This past year during our annual campaign 20 governorshave renewed their support by issuing a 2014 proclamation in support of a Siblings Day surpassing all previous years. They include proclamations from the states of: AL, CO, FL, IL, KS, MI, MO, MN, ND, NV, OK, PA, RI, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, WA and VW.
I could speak about the importance of the sibling relationship, but I could not do a better job than that done by the 49 some Governors of our states who have issued proclamations declaring Siblings Day in their states, posted below. Please read the beautiful language in those proclamations. Our brothers and sisters are a permanent part of our mental life. Also see the “Published Articles” page for some discussion about the importance of our siblings throughout our adult lives.
