One of this month’s theme stories.

     A group of people called Shakers came to America long ago looking for religious freedom. They believed that every minute is a gift from God and is needed for doing your best.   


I LOVE PEOPLE whose lives are rich in experience. I love people who are wiser than me. They have such interesting stories to share. They have so much life to tell you about. They understand life and know how to value each moment. They have such confidence. I love to watch them. I love their smiles. They are always looking for new adventures. They have strong relationships with others and add a lot to society.  — Elena
