RALLY 4 PEACEMany of our Northeast students created pavers for the International Day of Peace. We haven’t forgotten to select some saying to have engraved on real pavers. Our Rally 4 Peace participants are busy creating their presentations and will be part of the selection committee once their work is completed. Our plan is to announce the selected slogans in January, during the Week of Peace. We apologize for not clarifying this earlier.

THOUGHT OF THE DAYSome people say: Love is the glue that holds the universe together. We know that glue binds things together, right? And if you think about it, so does love. Think of the person you love most in the world. Don’t you feel very bonded to that person… connected? 

So, if love is like a glue that connects and binds, what do you think hate does? Hate separates. It nation from nation, people from people. It can even separate you into tiny pieces. You can’t be a whole and healthy person and be filled with hate. 

But wait! You don’t have to go to pieces! You can let go of those hateful feelings. Find someone you love and trust, and talk about it. We have great counselors (teachers) who can help. Maybe together you can find a way to glue things back together.
