The Golden Rule: Revisiting Norman Rockwell on April 1  

Since the formation of Community Health Center of Southeast Kansas in 2003, a print of The Golden Rule has traditionally graced the lobbies of each clinic.    

The Golden Rule  depicts people of every race, creed, and color, with dignity and respect and touches on the theme of human rights. It was “adopted” by the clinic as it succinctly represents the values of the CHC/SEK. Rockwell’s painting serves as not only a call to action, a directive, but also a reminder of what we deeply desire regardless of our differences: Kindness. 

The Golden Rule painting originally appeared on April 1, 1961, on the cover of the popular news magazine, The Saturday Evening Post. Its creator, Norman Rockwell (1894-1978) was an American painter and illustrator who was passionate about civil rights.
