Incredible India – Director's Cut (2018)

15 Dec

I only recently saw this ad and it’s nearly two years old. I remember seeing the original ad on CNN about eight years ago when I lived in Kuwait. What a magical place, and I am grateful that my family got to spend six years there. We certainly need to return some day to explore places we did not see.

What Americans Get Wrong About Africa (The Atlantic)

15 Dec

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is the author of books like Americanah and Half of a Yellow Sun. In this animated interview, the Nigerian-born author describes coming to America for college and being floored by how little her classmates knew about Africa. “I don’t think stereotypes are problematic because they’re false. That’s too simple,” she says. “Stereotypes are problematic because they’re incomplete.”

The official UN International Peace Day is September 21, but AISC will celebrate it on Friday, September 18. The UN created this day to strengthen the ideals of peace. This year’s theme for the day is “Partnerships for Peace – Dignity for All.” There will be a Graffiti Wall on the outside of the High School CIC facing the fountain courtyard. Students, parents, faculty – all community members – can share their thoughts, images, examples of what “Dignity for All” means to them. This wall will be up and ready starting on Tuesday, September 15. Envision a world of peace – what would it look like? How can we work toward achieving this?

“This year again, we saw the United Nations come together on armed conflict, human rights, the environment and many other issues. We continue to show what collective action can do. We can do even more. In a world that is more connected, we must be more united. On United Nations Day, let us pledge to live up to our founding ideals and work together for peace, development and human rights. ” – Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
