Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Today is a Christian holiday (though not necessarily observed by all Christians), celebrated on the 40th day after Easter Sunday. It marks the day when Jesus Christ ascended up into Heaven, 40 days after His resurrection from the dead. I think that this is only our second observance of it here together as the big Typhoon family that we are.
