Blossoms become fruit
By Asst. Supt. Logan Toone
Each year in early April, thousands of people flock to our nation’s capital to see the cherry blossoms on the National Mall in Washington, DC, (a park in the heart of the city where national memorials and monuments surround a beautiful reflective lake).
The cherry blossom tradition began in 1912, when Tokyo’s mayor Yukio Ozaki gifted more than 3,000 Yoshihito cherry trees to President William Howard Taft. Since then, the cherry blossoms at the National Mall have provided a sense of awe and wonder, a frame of natural beauty on our nation’s heritage, and a welcome call to spring.
The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character — that is the goal of true education.Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
