A petition has gained traction online, saying a national holiday should be made in honor of the late Reverend Billy Graham.
The petition was posted last week on change.org, and in just a matter of days it had more than 80,000 signatures.
It asks President Trump and Congress to consider naming a holiday for the Reverend, who died February 21 at 99-years old.
