Happy St. Pat's!

It's already St. Patrick's Day on the east coast, where most of my darling readers live. So, happy St. Pat's, darling readers!

I wanted to share this article from the New York Times in honor of the day. Make sure to watch the video -- it's delightful.

It tells the story of Caroline Duggan, a young Irishwoman living in New York and teaching in a public school in the Bronx. She introduced traditional Irish dancing to her mostly African-American and Latino/a students a couple of years ago, and not only have they become terrific dancers, but the cross-cultural experience has taught them much more about how big their world is. They have worked hard, and have every reason to be proud of their achievements.
