We start our February with a focus on Black History Month and our Virtue of JUSTICE. Justice towards others respects, promotes, and preserves the other’s right to live and flourish in peace and harmony. If we had more true Justice in our past 400 years of history, what would we be celebrating differently in our Black History Month today?
