We are currently in the final stages of preparing a new Irish American Heritage Month Video. Last year our video proclaimed Irish American Heritage Month to thousands on social media and the web. This year we wish to better that. We ask each of you not only to watch it but to share it on Facebook, Twitter, etc. and encourage others to do the same. It takes less than 2 minutes, yet if every Hibernian took the opportunity to share this video, then we should have no less than tens of thousands of shares. Tens of thousands of shares will be noticed promoting not only IAHM but the Hibernians.
We will also be doing our “Irish American Profiles” series where the Order will highlight a famous Irish American each Monday, Wednesday and Friday throughout March, and again we ask you to do the same: “Read, Like, Share”; again, it takes minutes but the impact cannot be underestimated.
If we say we are proud to be Irish, then we should match our words with deeds while remembering the warning of Edmund Burke: “People will not look forward to posterity who never look backward to their ancestors.”
