St. Pat’s Fact: The Irish flag is green, white and orange. The green symbolizes the people of the south, and orange, the people of the north. White represents the peace that brings them together as a nation.
Good morning, dear friends. Today’s card has a very special meaning to me. This morning, instead of going to work, I will stand with all the teachers of my city and province during a 3 day strike against our government who is trying to take away many professional rights of teachers as well as educational rights of students in the process. I don’t usually get political at all on my little blog, but I am beyond upset at what is happening with our public schools right now. B.C. used to be a leader in education and I am so proud of its history as that. I work with amazing teachers who always go above and beyond what is required of them. This morning as we gather together, I will give one of those special teachers this card. She is so very passionate about her job and has spoken so eloquently about what it means to her. I have thought about her all weekend and was inspired to make this card just for her. I purposely picked out this paper so that the little saying at the bottom could also be included. Let’s hope our voices stop falling on the deaf ears of our government. Please keep us in your prayers. Thanks :)
