Diwali, a holiday celebrated in late October or early November across the world, stretches back more than 2,500 years. In India, the five-day celebration traditionally is the biggest holiday of the year. This year, the “light” and “home” were brought to the community by our staff and students at Ace Acumen Academy with decorations, and savory and sweet traditional treats.
Students took pride in telling stories of their own celebrations and were excited to talk about their experiences back home with others. It was surely a joyful festival of lights for the whole community.
As a student said that day, when you look at the candle, think about how flames can flicker or burn brightly. As you go about your day, take opportunities to ensure your flame burns brightly and you are always ready to help others in difficulty. Through patience and perseverance, good will wins over evil.
Happy Diwali to everyone!
