April 8 We Celebrate Democracy/Civil Rights For All banner raising
On the morning of Sunday April 8th at 8 am to 9 am the Brattleboro fire department will hang the We Celebrate Democracy/Civil Rights For All main street banner over Main St. at High St. in downtown Brattleboro.
I’m going down to watch!
It makes me feel good to look up and see those words “Civil Rights For All” on the banner up above Main Street, so I go down to watch the fire company put the banner up. I feel like being there is a way I can make a public statement that Democracy and Civil Rights For All people are very important to me. The Works will be open. In order to stand up to the bullies in our society, we say at all our events: All people who attend this event agree to be nonviolent in word and in deed.
Check out the Gematria of “Baseball” check it out at http://gematrinator.com/calculator/index.php
baseball=54 (English Ordinal) 54 outs in a 9 inning baseball game between both teams
baseball=18 (Reduction) 18 players on both teams without the DH
baseball=27 (reduction w/S exception) 27 outs for one team in a 9 inning game
Gematria is the practice of coding numbers into words. In the beginning, according to the Book of Formation, God merged the letter with the number. Gematria is from the Kabbalah.
There are many different ways or ciphers to figure out the Gematria of a word or phrase. The English ordinal method a=1, b=2,c=3, z=26..etc The English Reduction method: z=26..2+6=8 The Reverse English ordinal method: a=26, b=25…y=2,z=1 and the Reverse Reduction method: a=8, b=7..etc..These follow the rules of numerology. The letter “S” is the 19th letter in the alphabet. In reduction “s” can also be 10 and 1.
On Saturday, April 7, 2018 @5:00 pm WWAC joins HOST, Haiti Orphanage Sponsorship Trust, in presenting a special event “An Introduction to Haiti Today.” The talk, screening and dinner by donation will be held at Centre Congregational Church, Memorial Hall,193 Main St, Brattleboro, VT
HOST is a small, grassroots non-profit based in Vermont that has been partnering with Foyer Evangelique Orphanage in Haiti since 2010 to provide food, education, medical attention and other essentials to the children at the orphanage.The speaker is Rose Albert, a motivated and dynamic young woman who was born and raised in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The film is “Serenade for Haiti,” a documentary feature which finds a story of transcendence and great humanity as the children and faculty of the Sainte Trinité Music School turn to music after a devastating earthquake.
Anyone able to imagine one’s own child in a pool of its own blood would have to be against a society that writes off millions of dead children as collateral damage. US military action in Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Iraq alone, brought death to 5 million dead kids! If one is a normal human being and loves all children as one’s own, being anti the Americans doing, or in agreement with, the killing, is a loving attitude.
Just a straight up submission, no drafting or saving. Needs a minimum of 100 characters so I’ll type a bit more. The error box is bright red, which is a bit harsh. Am I up to 100 characters. I must be getting close. Okay, submit again. Agh, still wants 100. Is it 100 words. That might be. In that case, we should change the error to say 100 words, instead of just 100. I wonder how many words this is. Not fair to have to count them myself! ha! Okay submitting again on the hope that i have 100. Ugh. still says I need to get to 100 words. How do I do this. Maybe it isn’t 100 words. Maybe it is 100 something elses. If that’s true, I’m lost. One hundred cats? One hundred blocks of cheese? Oh, please let me have a successful submission!
