Einstein discovered that our cells have too much space in between them to be considered solid, thus E=mc2. We are all energy; we are all connected. We believe differently because what we see is distinct: desk, chair, dog, car. Everything is separate, and we divide accordingly, republicans vs. democrats, gay vs. straight, black vs. white, etc.

But nothing can be achieved unless it is done collectively. Malcolm Gladwell talks about change that happens at a tipping point as a social epidemic. There needs to be enough people who work together to create collective change for change to happen. This month we look at unity and the impact it can have when we allow ourselves to look beyond the divisions we create.

In June celebrate: LGBT History Month, Kahmehameha Day (June 11th), Loving (vs. Virgina) Day & Philippine Independence Day (June 12th), Father’s Day (June 17th), Juneteenth (June 19th).
