|Malia Grace: Fighter|
@kevinhunsperger & @my123cents on Twitter
A couple of weeks ago I was looking for unique "holidays" online to share on our morning newscast. I remember seeing February 18 as "International Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day." Regular readers here know that I'm in the midst of a health kick so I didn't click the link for the details of this sweet sounding day. Honestly, I didn't want (or really need) a temptation to eat ice cream anytime.
Then on the afternoon of February 18 I saw a post on Facebook about WHY the day is devoted to eating ice cream for breakfast. It's all in honor of a little girl named Malia Grace. She was born February 18, 2001, just a few months shy of my middle son's birthday. Sadly, in 2010 Malia died after a long battle with cancer. As a way of honoring the creative and energetic girl, friends and family members posted a few pictures of themselves eating ice cream at the start of their day. The idea quickly went viral.
