Ralph Ellison was the African-American novelist who wrote the book Invisible Man. Listen to his words: America is woven of many strands . . . Our fate is to become one and yet many. That's an interesting phrase: "one and yet many." Let's think about that. We live in one nation, yet we have many states. We have one student body here at school, yet we have many different kinds of students. The Yugoslavians once said: Even the fingers on one's hands are not alike. Today, focus on what we have in common while honoring what's different! With something to think about, this is Mr. Martin Make it a great day . . . or not. The choice is yours.
