In 1961, President John F. Kennedy addressed the Canadian Parliament and provided a rallying cry that is just as relevant today as it was in 1961.  President Kennedy said, “Geography has made us neighbors. History has made us friends. Economics has made us partners. Necessity has made us allies. What unites us is far greater than what divides us.”  In recent years, there has been a growing divisiveness on many issues both globally and domestic.  The theme “Who Are We and What Unites Us” explores not what divides us but what unites us, what we have in common, and what hopes and dreams we all share. We believe this theme will inspire students to examine and discover who we are as an individual, a group, a nation, and as a global society.  Through this exploration, students will discover that what unites us is much greater than our differences and how embracing our differences can in fact bring us closer together.
