I was scrolling down my FB timeline when I ran across this video:
Ronald Moon lives in Evanston, one of the toughest/roughest neighborhoods in Cincinnati. To see that he is trying to make a change in the community only to be thwarted by some of those who are imprisoned in a broken spirituality is heartbreaking.
But then he just forgives them and wants to keep on doing his work.
Please help Ronald Moon by giving to his fund. If you can’t help them pass along the word so those who can help will know about it.
Be strong, Ronald. There are so many of us out there that care.

Counting down the days until this event.
I want to see this film.
I probably will eventually find it on Netflix or have to request it as an Interlibrary Loan book before it makes its way to me. But I am going to see it.

I really do read them.
I totally agree.

The informal theme for this year is more about reading and learning at the library with a focus on S.T.E.A.M programs,i.e., Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics programs. These programs are ways to help kids not forget everything they learned during the school year while having fun over the summer.
When I was younger, I can remember the multiple camps and day workshops my mother had me in during the summer. My mumbled complaints would be silenced with a statement that I would thank her when I got older. She wanted to make sure that I wouldn’t forget how to write a paper or figure…
