MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) - If you were on Twitter this week, you more than likely saw that the hashtag #YouAintFromMemphis was trending worldwide and now there's a petition to have June 19 named as Memphis Appreciation Day!

The person who started the page says they want to preserve the history and the new development of Memphis, Tennessee.

They say they hope an appreciation day quote "will bring pride, to a city that has a great impact on America."

Right now the petition only has just over 500 signatures. It needs 100,000 by July 19.
