Worship of Tools Day

OutsetMarch 11 is Worship of Tools Day! If it weren’t for tools, how would we have built the world around us? Celebrate every tool in its glory today!

We can thank our Neanderthal ancestors for the invention of tools, who used tools made from stone, like hand axes and cleavers, to hunt, kill, and skin their food. They also used tools to carve pictures into stone. Though the origin of this strange holiday remains unknown, we can use this day to appreciate the tools we use regularly use (as well as the ones that are lonely in our toolbox) for all the things they have helped us create, build, and fix over the years.

You can celebrate today by carefully thinking about what needs to be repaired in your life, and showing your tools love by using them to complete these old projects. Even if you don’t have anything that needs to be fixed, you can get crafty and think of a new DIY project to use what tools you have at your disposal. Help others celebrate by buying your loved ones some new tools and helping them take on projects of their own.

Happy Worship of Tools Day!

Janet Reno Becomes First Female Attorney General

On March 11, 1993, Janet Reno was appointed as Attorney General of the United States of America.

This date was a monumental occasion for women’s history as it marked the first time a woman would serve at the Attorney General position. Reno was appointed by President Bill Clinton, and she remained in office until 2001, becoming the second longest serving Attorney General behind William Wirt.

During her tenure as Attorney General, Reno focused on the following issues: launching programs for alternative punishment for one-time offenders and harsher punishments for repeat offenders, keeping children away from gangs, drugs, and violence, and equal opportunity reform to ensure rights for all Americans.
