It’s too perfect that the term “pirate” actually came up today. Historical fact: St. Patrick’s day would NOT exist without pirates. St. Patrick was not originally Irish. Take a look at the Smithsonian website for more… http://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/celebrating-st-patrick-149563584/?no-ist
I’m not a religious kind of pirate (but they DID exist in big ways): Still, maybe I should consider this as a way that St. Patrick was said to work through the island, and perhaps it could be a reminder that we can work this way, too.
