Night in Boston MA, December 31st
For decades, Boston MA has celebrated the day of New Years Eve
citywide celebration and participation of its cultural and artistic
Noticing what a wonderful event this has become for Boston’s
citizens of all ages, and tourists, many other cities across
the USA have
copied this event, which is called First Night.
For December 31, 2005 the KindredCOLORS Exhibit was invited to join the very
important and effective groups PlanUSA, WorldBoston, and the United Nations
Association of Greater Boston in a special room called
Global Youth Connections.
KindredCOLORS was the first exhibit encountered as First
Nighters entered the room. We served as a warm-up or
mood-setter for the other
wonderful displays and activities in the room: marvelous
what-peace-would-look-like by youth from all over the world,
for all ages to make peace flags, a live student panel
world problems and possibilities, and the chance to send
emails to the
leaders of our state and nation — with hopes and ideas
are a few photos of some of the people of all ages and backgrounds
who experienced KindredCOLORS. They were taken by Rosemary

Women’s Day at Simmons College,
Boston MA, March 8th
Since 1911 the global observance of International Women’s
Day (IWD) on
March 8th has enabled solidarity and support that has motivated
political, and economic progress of women locally and globally
— in their
homes, workplaces, and communities.
On that day throughout the globe and at the United Nations, men
and women attend conferences, rallies, parades, and even send
candy to acknowledge those who have made significant contributions to
the advancement of women’s lives (and therefore the betterment of all
society), and to mobilize and activate collective determination to work for
a fairer future with peace and well-being for everyone.
The IWD was mostly unknown in the USA until 2017. But meaning, power, camaraderie, and fun of IWD were stated, promoted, and celebrated nationwide that year with such enthusiasm and conviction that IWD will probably become an annual day of honor and reckoning in the USA too.
Additional activities have included or will include the following:
- The use of KindredCOLORS materials in a college English as a Second Language (ESL) course.
