The holidays are a special time for experiencing joy, family, sharing, renewing and caring. They are also a time for reliving those special memories and histories of our family and culture.
These holidays are a time to stimulate our children with beautiful stories, songs, and activities of the season. Most of all, the holidays are a time to immerse our children in love, and Christmas lights symbolize an even more important light the light of love for family and friends.
So, as we enter the month of December with its short days and clear, crisp weather, I suggest that we take a few moments to look both forward and back. As we look back at the year 2017, we can reflect upon a year of hard work, challenges, and accomplishments - a year of learning and growing. Please join me in wishing joy, peace, and health to our friends and families as we look forward to the promise of a new year.
For me, I am busier than ever after my retirement a year ago.
I am thankful for the opportunities for speaking invitations, travelling, learning, sharing and reading. I continue to share my 23-year experience as school principal, and my continuous learning. I have travelled to Russia, Australia, Japan and South Korea this past year alone.
On January 15, 2018, we will observe the birthday of an American leader who devoted his individual talent to the advancement of society. Martin Luther King, Jr. is remembered for championing the causes of the disadvantaged. However, I believe Dr. King influenced the more prosperous members just as significantly.
His crusade was to inform the “strong” links that their individual strength meant little if other links were close to collapsing. “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” These words reflect Dr. King’s belief in the “chain” of society. Thus, he believed that a person’s ultimate achievement was to contribute to one’s community, to needs other than one’s own. “An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”
