There are so many holidays happening in February – President’s Day, Chinese New Year which coincides with Valentine’s day on February 14th and yesterday was the first day of Black History Month. I know that I don’t need to tell you why it’s important to celebrate the differences and likenesses of all people who have made this country, and world great. Tell me I don’t. Ok I won’t but I’ll quote Irish novelist George Moore, “After all, there is but one race: humanity.” Well said George.
Some more eloquent passages to help inspire you this month:
