National Columnists Day is observed on June 23, 2017. Columnists are honoured on National Columnists Day. The day was initiated by columnists as a remembrance for Ernie Pyle. Pyle was an American journalist who was killed during World War II, while working as a columnist. The claim of the day is to make people aware of the dangers columnists go through to keep the world informed all the time.
Columnists celebrate National Columnists Day by meeting each other, comparing notes, telling stories, and sharing experiences. The rest of the world should be thankful and value the columnists' work. Reading a good newspaper on National Columnists Day should definitely include some thoughts about the woman or man who wrote it and did the research.
