Find Your Way in Life

by Willie White

One thing that I've learned over the years is that you have to find your way in life. I'm beginning to find my way. We take so much for granted in our daily lives. People are hurting and we are to busy complaining about the small things.

I was shopping this morning at Price Chopper. A lady came in the Market and told one of the worker that a man had passed out on the sidewalk. When I got outside, I went over to him and said that everything was going to be ok. I told him to hang in there, the ambulance was on the way. He started to cry. I asked him what was wrong. he said that they shouldn't have called the ambulance. I told him that he had bumped his head and that he should go and get checked out.

I was drinking a nice hot cup of coffee that I had just got from dunkin donut. He looked at my coffee and said, "I wish I had one of those." That coffee was so good but I gave it to him. You would think that that coffee was gold. he really appreciated it and I'm so glad I gave it to him.

I waited until the ambulance arrived and explained to the EMT what had happen, then I was on my way home. When I was driving away, I couldn't help from crying myself. I thought about how much people are hurting and how we, as a society takes so much for granted, I believe I'm finding my way in life. In order to find your way, you must first get your self out of the way, if you know what I mean.

Our communities should never depend on Politicians.  We should do it ourselves. Now if you are trying to get a political dig in, that's not my style.  I look to the People!


2012 Summer A+Plus Program

AVillage and Wmht are collaborating this summer with the A+Plus Program, formerly known as the summer youth employment program. We are working with teens to show them how to be reporters. We had our first orientation on Monday. It was very exciting! we look forward to our second session, which will happen today at 10:30am. This is promised to be a great experience for our Youth! Just to see the stars in their eyes and the joy that our children have in their heart, is all I need.

I know that this will be a big success for our children and the community as a whole. I spoke at the common council last night and told them about the program. I also asked them if our students could interview them. They were all happy to accommodate our request. God put me in the right place when he allowed me to be able to interact with our children. I have very little to offer but what I have to offer is better than nothing. Our children are amazing!

We are also very proud to have the opportunity to work with Amanda J. Lester andKatherine Pasquini Jetter of Wmht. These young ladies are totally amazing. Just to take out of their busy schedule and come down to our neighborhood and work with our children is really something to be commended. I'm very happy to have known them. Our children will go into the community and interview members of their families, neighbors, elected officials and many more. Our intentions are to interview people like Dr. Alice Green, Ms. Clara Phillips, The Mayor, Judges, police officers, like Ben Sturges and others.

Please Stay Tuned....Much More To Come...AVillage/Wmht
