We should have a National Lifeguard Day

Summer is almost over and I think it’s ridiculous that lifeguards don’t have a national day. Every day in the summer, they save us from either drowning or being eaten by a shark. They do so much for us. I think that there should be a day just to celebrate lifeguards for all they do for us in the summer. If we all do decide on a national lifeguard day, it shouldn’t just be put in some random day of the year. It should be some day in the summer because that’s when they do their job best — some time in July or August during the height of the swimming season, or even the day before Labor Day when the summer unofficially ends. That’s why we should have a national lifeguard day to celebrate our summer police on the beach.
