I was blessed with wonderful parents. This photo is of my husband and I on our wedding day with my parents December 31, 1975. Please visit my small but notable page dedicated to my parents.  Thank you. Marleen Marino - Publisher.

Sunday is Parent's Day. In 1994 President Bill Clinton signed into law the resolution unanimously adopted by the U. S. Congress establishing the 4th Sunday of every July. Parents' Day, a perennial day of commemoration similar to Mother's Day and Father's Day. According to the Congressional Resolution, Parents’ Day is established for "recognizing, uplifting, and supporting the role of parents in the rearing of children."  The establishment of Parents’ Day was the result of a bipartisan, multiracial and interfaith coalition of religious, civic and elected leaders who recognized the need to promote responsible parenting in our society and to uplift ideal parental role models, especially for our nation's children.
