Good morning! May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month in the United States. The month of May was chosen because of the first Japanese immigrant to the U.S. on May 7, 1843, and to honor the Chinese immigrant workers who labored to finish the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869. May also is Older Americans Month and Jewish American Heritage month. Here is a quotation from famous Jewish American scientist, Albert Einstein: "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” Don't forget Memorial Day, on May 28th, established to honor military veterans who died in wars fought by American forces.
