Reflection of yearly hours: FEDEX Time: NEXT YEAR's YAC

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

YAC Meeting April 19-Oklahoma City Bombing Remembered

Attendance: Zainab and Mrs. Clay. Shiva came after the meeting was adjurned to state that he will be attending food bank volunteer opportunity this weekend. Mrs. Clay stated that the service opportunity this weekend starts with a collaboration with the Environmental Club in the morning and service at the Food Bank in the afternoon. We will not be going to Habitat anymore.

Item # 1: Respectful viewing of April 19



Item # 2: Zainab provided a cleaver idea for special Presidential awards to be delivered partly at Chapel and partly at an ice cream social only for this year's presidential award winners.

Item # 3: Because CDC did not attend meeting, we will not have a class meeting. We will simply offer the opportunity for anyone interested in creative movement linked to service. Mrs. Clay will contact dance teacher to warn her of possible poor attendance. The Creative Movement linked to service opportunity will take place at the amphitheater.

All other items were tabled due to lack of participation.


Yearly reflection, what did we do, learn, how can it be improved, what was the kodak moment

Parole de La Chanson Des Restos:

Moi je file un rancard
A ceux qui n' ont plus rien
Sans idéologie discours ou baratin
On vous promettra pas
Les toujours du grand soir
Mais juste pour l' hiver
A manger et à boire

A tous les recalés de l' âge et du chômage
Les privés du gâteau les exclus du partage
Si nous pensons à vous c' est en fait égoïste
Demain nos noms peut-être grossiront la liste

Refrain
Aujourd' hui on n' a plus le droit
Ni d' avoir faim ni d' avoir froid
Dépassé le chacun pour soi
Quand je pense à toi je pense à moi
Je te promets pas le grand soir
Mais juste à manger et à boire
Un peu de pain et de chaleur
Dans les restos les restos du cœur
Aujourd' hui on n' a plus le droit
Ni d' avoir faim ni d' avoir froid

Autrefois on gardait toujours une place à table
Une chaise, une soupe, un coin dans l' étable
Aujourd' hui nos paupières et nos portes sont closes
Les autres sont toujours, toujours en overdose

J' ai pas mauvaise conscience, ça m' empêche pas d' dormir
Mais pour tout dire ça gâche un peu l' goût d' mes plaisirs
C' est pas vraiment ma faute si y' en a qui ont faim
Mais ça le deviendrait si on n' y change rien

Refrain
Aujourd' hui on n' a plus le droit
Ni d' avoir faim ni d' avoir froid
Dépassé le chacun pour soi
Quand je pense à toi je pense à moi
Je te promets pas le grand soir
Mais juste à manger et à boire
Un peu de pain et de chaleur
Dans les restos les restos du cœur
Aujourd' hui on n' a plus le droit
Ni d' avoir faim ni d' avoir froid

J' ai pas de solution pour te changer la vie
Mais si je peux t' aider quelques heures allons-y
Y' a bien d' autres misères trop pour un inventaire
Mais ça se passe ici, ici et aujourd' hui

Write your name and your path to peace (through kindness and/or service to others and/or yourselves)

"My experience with Shinneyo--en has reminded me that peace is a choice that each of us must choose each day inspite of the hustle, bustle, and chaos of daily life--choosing peace is a way to reconnect us to one another" Mrs. Crossno

Sample Paths to Peace:
Primary: Hugging
Lower Division: Sharing my video games with my brother
Middle School: Helping a friend learn, not just giving answers to homework
High School:
Teachers, Administrators, and other adults:
Mrs. Warden: My path to peace is the family God has blessed me with.
Mrs. Miano: "My path to peace both personal and universal can be summed up by my career choice of teaching young people. In their hands lie the solutions to the future. A willingness to grapple with tough mathematics problems extends into the resolving of life issues that can forge a pathway to peace."
Mrs. Clay: My path to peace is "TRUST Peace @ the Heart of Service"
Mrs. Clay's Husband: I do not know.
