There is a special day on the calendar on April 25 that is called "East meets West Day". On this day many sports teams do an east / west competition to celebrate unity.
It originated in WW2 when the eastern front met the western front at an important point that helped in ending the war.
This might be a good day to think about how different we are, but how much the same we are.
It also might be a good day to think about the Bible verse that talks about east and west. Can you think of what it is? It is found in Psalm 103:12. The Bible says, "As far as the east is from the west, so far has [God] removed our transgressions from us.
That's a long way because if you go east, you never start going west. Think about that. If you go north, pretty soon (at north pole) you start going south. That doesn't happen with east and west. God has thrown away your sins so far that He doesn't even remember them. That's great news!
