National Mark Foo Day sign now

On the day of December 13, 1994, a great man named Mark Foo was tragically killed by the forces of Mother Nature.

Mark Foo was a professional surfer for many years. Hailing from the island of Oahu, Hawai'i, Mark travelled from location to location, pushing himself to the limits.
One day, he found himself in the city of San Fransisco, California, at a newfound big wave surf spot nicknamed Mavericks. The spot had 25-foot waves, and a difficult rip curl that pulls you under the water and holds you for minutes at a time, and needless to say, freezing-cold water.

He surfed there for some time on that day, but at one point, he lost control of his surfboard and was pulled under the water. He did not surface.
When another man was surfing there minutes later, he too was pulled under, though was able to pull himself up out of the water, though before surfacing, he felt the grip of a human hand on his ankle.

Mark Foo's body was discovered later that day. The cause of death was drowning. He sacrificed his life in a belief, his belief in showing the world that you can do whatever you want to do, if only you set your mind to it. To this day, many who remember this man recognize his sacrifice on December 13, and the all the other days of the year, though I notice that there is no national time recognized for this courageous man. I petition the government to recognize December the 13th for this man.
