According to http://nationalpandaday.blogspot.com/, today is National Panda Day. And that, friends, is just about all the website says.
(Apparently International Red Panda Day is in September. I think today must be about regular black and white pandas.)
In honor of National Panda Day, I am sharing with you photos I took of a bronze statue in Phoenix, AZ called Maternal Love. According to http://www.waymarking.com/waymarks/WMNDD5_Maternal_Love_Phoenix_AZ, the statue
was presented in September 1996 from Chendgu Municipal Government, P.R. China, and Mayor Wang Rong Xuan to the city of Phoenix, Arizona.
