In celebration of families, Vicki Tollman reflects on the importance of loved ones during this uncertain time.
Dear traveler and treasured guest,
Wherever you are, I hope you and your family are safe and in good health. This May is certainly different from ones we have known in the past, but one thing that remains the same is that numerous countries around the world will be celebrating Mother’s Day this month. Especially significant this year is the United Nations International Day of Families on Friday 15th May.
For this reason, we decided to dedicate this post to the importance of family, as we navigate this perilous time in our world. Just as our families can be the source of our greatest joy during good times, so too do they provide strength and comfort through challenging times. As Alex Haley, author of Roots, wrote so beautifully, 'In every conceivable manner, our family is a link to our past, a bridge to our future.'
