Did you know that? In an early Roman calendar, April was the second month and turned the fourth month when Caesar established the Julian calendar in 46 b.c.e.. So here we are stepping into April into Springtime!

Spring makes nature blossom with new life, that was hidden in the cold of winter. may peaceful thoughts take root and blossom in our own lives too. Remember, “April showers bring May flowers….” let’s water our own thoughts of peace and goodwill to blossom into beautiful peace loving children.

(For a craft activity you can make a paper flower and stick it in your desk, sprinkle glitter to make it shine that you may grow to be beautiful flower, everybody would admire.)

Month of April – It is also cancer control month. let’s think of what we can do to help comfort a person battling with the disease, that he may forget and overcome the bad things about cancer. A lot of times, kind words, gestures and actions can help somebody afflicted and in pain overcome these.

April is also ” Keep America beautiful month,” Wow! What a lot you can do in a whole month. Come to think of it….

Hurrah…..! for America.
