Reflections of a Baby Boomer

Throughout the Bible, God encourages us to help our neighbor with whatever resources we have. For Baby Boomers, we were more than encouraged to be involved in our communities In fact, if we weren’t, it was hard to advance. Personally, I helped not because I had to, but because I enjoyed being involved, and being of service to my neighbors and communities.

Understanding Educational Entertainment

Summer Slide! It sounds like a fun and entertaining game children play during the summer. However, this term refers to the academic loss and regression that many children experience during the 8-10 weeks of summer vacation. Even though Summer break is here, that does not mean that children cannot continue learning. “According to National Summer Learning Association, all students experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer months, and most lose about two months of grade-level equivalency in mathematical computation skills” (Fleming, 2017).

Gilly Brewing Co.

Martin Luther King Jr. once said he had a dream “…that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.” Brotherhood is another name for community and it is a need at the core of every human being.

Coffee and Camping

As day breaks, I realize that I am not the first to have awakened by far. The birds have risen hours before me, along with many other woodland creatures beginning their morning routine with loud and vigorous gusto. The loud morning cries outside my tent are the most peaceful noises I’ve heard in months. There are no beeping alarm clocks or email notifications greeting me as I reluctantly enter a lucid state of mind and begin my daily rituals. No, this is camping, and it is full of its own beautiful routines: pancakes and eggs over the fire, hiking until you drop, scarfing down dinner, and collapsing beside the campfire before bed.

3 Little Things Campaign Kickoff

I am using this little space in this friendly little newspaper to try and do something that hopefully will have a not-so-little impact. A community is not only made great by natural beauty, proximity to desirable areas and existing capital base. A community is made enjoyable by the people who live there. It is how they approach their daily lives. Do they know and love their neighbors, despite the flaws?
