March 21 – understanding

☆  understanding  思いやりのある


Today is “Harmony Day” in Australia, and so my kids have added a “splash of orange” to their school. I bought them orange shoelaces to use today! Orange is the color chosen to represent Harmony Day because it signifies social communication and meaningful conversations. The color orange also relates to the freedom of ideas and mutual respect.

Harmony Day is a day to celebrate multiculturalism in Australia, and the idea is to celebrate inclusiveness, respect, understanding and belonging for all Australians regardless of their culture or language background.

The day was chosen as it coincides with the UN International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, which is another way of promoting inclusiveness and understanding around the world.
