Today we celebrate diversity. Today we celebrate our one human family. Today, with millions of Australians, we celebrate Harmony Day.
This is one of our favourite days in the year for a number of reasons. To begin with, few initiatives are developed with their purpose and aim so clearly communicated. The goal of Harmony Day is to spread a message of welcome, to remind all that they belong and feeling this sense of togetherness is their right as a member of our human family. Secondly, diversity is an asset to communities that many politicians struggle to celebrate within Western societies in this day and age. We love Harmony Day for celebrating diversity as being one of the key ingredients to positive, thriving communities. Above all things however, we appreciate this day for reminding us of our duty to welcome each other, regardless of our ethnic or cultural background, on the basis of us all belonging to the same human race.
We hope you have had the chance to acknowledge the importance of this movement today in your workplace, school, or even through social media. If you would like to find out more about this significant initiative, why not visit the campaign’s website? You can find it here.
Thank you for supporting this phenomenal movement, and remember: we all belong to the one human family, in which everyone belongs.
