What a joyful occasion it is for me to congratulate you on the coming Weed Appreciation Day. March 28 marks worldwide celebrations of this very important day. Do not be quick to assume that by “weed” I mean pot. Not at all.
World Weed Appreciation Day is the day on which, while working in your gardens, you stop and think of all the times you have spent removing the bad plants from it. A bad plant growing in a garden of beautiful flowers is a terrible thing.
I would like to take this occasion to remind you all that AUM is a lot like that too. It is a garden we all take care off by weeding the bad plants out. However, we must stop and think, on this very important day for every gardener. Would we be here without the weeds? We must thank and appreciate all these bad plants that were weeded out of AUM throughout the years and we must also strive to be good plants.
Much like a gardener cares about his garden, our new Provost will help us weed the new weeds so that we can achieve many new things and do a lot of different stuff forever and ever at AUM.
Head of Liberar Arts at AUM
