Back from Break – United we stand

United Nations Day

One of the most important aspects of ASW is our unique diversity. With 50+ countries represented in our mix, we have a uniquely complicated recipe that leads to a community of significant flavor and complexity. Winston Churchill is quoted as saying:

“Diversity is the one true thing we all have in common… Celebrate it every day.”

Winston Churchill

In the accomplishment of our mission of “changing the world for the better,” there is no better core value to live by than embracing that we are all in this together and that no one should be left behind. Working together is about accepting the diversity of thinking that comes from our inherent diversity, the uniqueness of each human spirit bringing their hopes and dreams in to a community tapestry of aspiration. I look forward each year to our opportunities on United Nations Day to embrace this spirit and give opportunity to each voice of home and culture. Valuing that identity and sharing it with others gives it life and meaning – an important part of growing and becoming. While we can’t be totally back to normal just yet, we are hopeful that this year’s UN Day will bring some measure of embracing what makes us special! Thank you to PTO and all who will make it a special day for our students on Friday. More details in eNotes further down in this message.
