Roosevelt Island Explorers Leila Vujosevic reports:
Last Saturday Roosevelt Island Explorers invited the Island families for a fun holiday event - sending holiday wishes to our loved ones all around the world.Roosevelt Island Explorers Facebook Page is here.
The unusually warm weather helped turn the Blackwell Park lawn into a playground where children and adults
created beautiful holiday messages. The following countries and U.S. States were represented:
France, Italy, Russia, Georgia, Brazil, Australia, Equador, Serbia, China, Ukraine, Belgium, Israel, Turkey, and Alabama, Missouri, Kentucky, New York…
In addition to variety of holiday messages, a wish for PEACE
was included because "some people still have guns in the world"…
Something to think about: although children mentioned countries they come from, what mattered most was being with friends regardless of where they come from. Multiculturalism seems to be a grownups' construct.
We look forward to continue our Island explorations next year…
