Of all the isms, the ones I proudly embrace are being able to speak a couple of languages and multiculturalism.

The two primary theories of multiculturalism integrated into a single society are commonly used to describe them as the “melting pot” and the “salad bowl”.

The old Line about how you play the game went out the window with the new win at all costs attitude. That expression “it’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you play the game” has now been updated.

Happy Women's Herstory Month to all the ladies on earth and elsewhere, in case there are also intelligent beings on other planets.

Love yourself and be grateful for all you have in life. Learn to laugh at the mistakes you make along the way. Each day, feel the enthusiasm for your vision as if it has already happened. Stay open for the remarkable to occur. Young children may teach us something. As adults, we can be persistent in going for what we value.
