Celebrating Diversity

This Monday, October 12th is the federal holiday Columbus Day. Many states have changed the day to celebrate Indigenous People's day instead. Our school is diverse. Our community is diverse. Perhaps we can use this day to consider the Islamic proverb above and celebrate our diversity.
