Torture Awareness Month


Jewish communities are marking this as Torture Awareness Month, suggesting congregation members examine if they're comfortable taking a public stand against torture, what they're afraid of and what can realistically be done to effect a solution.

This adds to an already crowded month. Without any official declarations, June is also proving to be:

-9.4% Unemployment Rate Awareness Month
-Health Care Reform Awareness Month
-Higher Gasoline Prices Awareness Month
-Federal Intervention in the Economy Awareness Month
-Iran Disputed Election Awareness Month
-North Korea Nuclear Weapons Awareness Month
-Zicam Endangers Sense of Smell Awareness Month
-Nevada's Senator John Ensign's Extramarital Affair Awareness Month
-and, of course, David Letterman/Sarah Palin Feud Awareness Month
