  • Today is Friday November 8th and it is Day 2 in our schedule.  Our character theme for November is Empathy and here is something to think about.  “Too often we underestimate the power of touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” – Leo Buscaglia
