24 Nov We Are Grateful.
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” – John F. Kennedy, Thanksgiving Day proclamation, 1963
We at Sonia Shah Organization are grateful every day for the opportunities and accomplishments that surround us: young girls and boys learning to read and write; girls who stay in school and pursue their dreams; women learning skills to support their families; access to precious clean water, nutritious food and good health.
We at Sonia Shah Organization are grateful every day for the opportunities and accomplishments that surround us.
No one does this work alone. Deitrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945), a German Lutheran theologian who gave his life to fighting Nazism in Germany, once said: “It is so easy to overestimate the importance of our own achievements compared with what we owe to the help of others.”
We are grateful to you, for supporting Sonia’s mission to educate and empower girls and women.
Enjoy this Thanksgiving Day. Fill it with love, respect, tolerance, courage, gratitude, forgiveness, simplicity and peace. Make a difference in the world.
