A day for teen moms and scholars

For 25 years, eligible high school and college students from Manatee and Sarasota counties have received scholarships from the Longboat Island Chapel on Mother’s Day. Also, this is the third year the congregation has collected items for teen moms who attend Riverview High School in Sarasota.

Who gets to stay in the picture? Everyone should

There is a portrait hanging on a wall in my home of me, as an infant, my mother, my grandmother, and my great-grandmother. Next to it is a portrait of my daughter, as an infant, me, my mother and my grandmother. One day, I hope that there might be a picture of my grandchild, my daughters, my mother and I.

We should offer asylum to those needing it

Picture this, today, somewhere in Greece or Sweden, or the United States: Seven hundred people crammed into a camp of loosely arranged, narrowly separated plywood-patched and canvas-covered huts next to a mud-shored pond of fetid water. Living off donated date-expired food prepared over coffee-can sized kerosene stoves that double as space heaters. The children are being taught in loosely organized groups by volunteer camp residents, while adults gather in small clusters for discreet conversations and gossip that serve as community forums, with no one allowed to leave the razor-wired perimeter and handfuls of escapees returning daily. All of them sharing the same less than private bathing, toilet and suspect sanitation facilities, everyone — even the returning escapees — considering themselves lucky to be there.
