We are all unique

Well the first day of autumn was Saturday, but based upon the weather we are having it feels more like the middle of summer! And according to the weather channel, it’s only going to get hotter; supposedly close to 100 degrees on Friday. So keep that bottle of water, or for me an extra large Diet Coke, to keep hydrated and I have to admit it is a shame that the quad won’t be open to take advantage of all the new shade and grass. What are your thoughts on the new design of the quad? There are still a few additions, such as benches in the circular area where the new trees are, but do you truly like the new look?

On another note, I would like to wish a happy Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) to all of those who celebrate and take part in this special day. I think this is one of the beauties and amazing part of, not just America, but Fullerton College; knowing there are students from all walks of life, backgrounds and beliefs, yet they socialize with one another without hesitation. I’m not a very religious person, yet I recognize and respect those who believe in their religion. That is what makes each one of us so unique and special, although similar to others we are each our own individual. No one else is like you, me, a friend or classmate, yet we learn and know how to interact with each other with respect.

Until next time!
