Portugal Day National Holiday

Officially Day of Portugal, Camões, and the Portuguese Communities, is the National Day of Portugal celebrated annually on the 10th June. It is one of the public holidays in Portugal and celebrated by Portuguese people throughout the world. It commemorates the death of Luís de Camões, a poet and national literary icon. Camões wrote Os Lusíadas (usually translated as The Lusiads), Portugal's national epic poem celebrating Portuguese history and achievements. The poem focuses mainly on the 15th-century Portuguese explorations, which brought fame and fortune to the country. The poem, considered one of the finest and most important works in Portuguese literature, became a symbol for the great feats of the Portuguese Empire. This day is also celebrated in Canada, where June is also know as Portuguese Heritage month as of 2017. Celebrations also occur in American and British portuguese communities, like Little Portugal in Southeast London.

This is a big one for me. This dude's family is old southern money, got lots of connections in government, business, and the judicial system. They're also BFFFs with the family that owns the company that I work for. Their son got 2 people killed in 2 separate events and had a DUI incident after this girl died in a boating accident near where I live. When this whole thing started it was strongly suggested that we were not to post anything negative about this Paul guy on social media. His family pulled every string they could to get the case against him dismissed and smear the victim's family for the past 2+ years. Finally someone got tired of the Murdaugh family's shit and decided to take the law into their own hands. I love America. #vigilante https://www.yahoo.com/news/fatal-sc-boat-crash-double-201421559.html
