Our Lady of Mercy School: 90 Years of Following in the Footsteps of Jesus Christ - the Greatest Teacher of all time.
As we honor the Constitution this week, let us remember the writers and those who immigrated to what became the Colonies before them. May we be so bold in our lives to educate ourselves and then sacrifice our comforts for the bettering of the lives of others. Most of those who were involved in the writing of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution suffered abuse and sometimes death for their efforts. We are their posterity and must be eternally grateful for the gift they left us.

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered; Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you win some false friends and some true enemies; Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.
