CELEBRATING AMERICA: Festival of faiths
At this point in history, we are going through difficult times. Whether you are on the right, left or the center, you are concerned about the liberties and freedoms of Americans. The divisiveness, even though temporary, has caused us to lose trust in each other to function effectively as a nation.
So what can we do?
Our President John Kennedy had famously urged us, “Ask not what the country can do - ask what you can do for your country.” and Professor William James had written that our actions can change the moods.
Here is what we can to do to restore America where no Americans feels left out, but feels included in nation building.
Let’s close 2016 on a positive note, let’s come together as Americans, and celebrate our collective Festivals of Hanukkah, Christmas, Milad, Kwanza, Janamashtami, Gurpurab and the festivities of Native Americans, and other traditions including Atheist/Humanist. Each group will get to sing honoring their faith tradition.
Here is the program; it is a small step but a giant leap of faith for Americans.
