Although February is the shortest month, it is mighty. We have Valentine’s Day, a bright red reminder to celebrate those whom we love. President’s Day is not far behind, honoring the legacies of honesty and character exemplified by presidents such as Lincoln and Washington. Black History month, during which we celebrate the accomplishments of black leaders throughout history, is also this month. The Olympics, now on the world stage, remind us of the Greek roots of both the Olympics and philanthropy. The first ancient Olympic games can be traced to 776 BCE at Olympia, on the northwestern corner of the Peloponnese in Greece. Although decidedly more modern it its etymology (ca. 1600 AD), the word “philanthropy” derives from the Greek philanthropia, translated roughly as kindliness, humanity, benevolence, and love to mankind. In short, February stands for giving and striving to be the best version of ourselves.
