It happened on this day…

On this day in 551 BC Confucius is believed to have been born.  Confucius (551-479 BC) was a famous philosopher and teacher who lived in China nearly 2,500 years ago. His teachings were based on treating others in the same way as you treat yourself. He believed that peace and harmony are achieved by avoiding drastic action or wild thinking. He taught wisdom, love, courage, care, respect, and unselfishness. The Chinese and many other people have followed his doctrines for centuries. Confucius is the Latinized name of Kung-futzu. September 28 is still widely observed in East Asia as Confucius’ birthday. It is an official holiday, “Teachers’ Day,” in Taiwan.
