Dear readers, happy holidays. Especially at such a tough time, celebrating holidays may be helpful. At least, it’s a break to come back stronger with a fresh mind. No matter what, we always have another choice. There is always something we can do to make things a bit better. Even counterintuitive, thanksgiving can be a powerful force. The choice is yours if & how to use that force 😉.

From Code Next — Winter 2022, I was lucky to work with coach Li, the founder of 1 Thing Against Racism ( It’s a non-profit in response to the rise of anti-Asian hate crimes. I like they are raising awareness by making the news & stats universally available because nothing speaks louder than data. The call to action is also inspiring because anyone may find 1 of their own thing to help. So, what could be the 1 thing for you?
