“MR. BROWNE'S SEPTEMBER PRECEPT:
WHEN GIVEN THE CHOICE BETWEEN BEING
RIGHT OR BEING KIND, CHOOSE KIND.”
― R.J. Palacio,
“If every person in this room made it a rule that wherever you are, whenever you can, you will try to act a little kinder than is necessary - the world really would be a better place. And if you do this, if you act just a little kinder than is necessary, someone else, somewhere, someday, may recognize in you, in every single one of you, the face of God.”
― R.J. Palacio,
BEST WISHES TO ALL OF YOU 5W FOR A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR! ENJOY YOUR TIME OFF TOGETHER. BE SAFE AND HAVE FUN!
