Measuring Greatness from the Manger Up


far away from Rome, Italy,
there is a girl named Lily 
and she believes that intelligence is our way of joy
then at middle kingdom,
another girl named Stefanie is born from holly land,
her birth brings happiness to the mother Simone,
yet her dream is always shadowed by unknown figures,
during years of growth and education,
Lily and Stefanie meet,
they compete
and they resent 
themselves,
until a Kenyan lady Martha 
resides at USA,
through lots of visual and physical work,
ALL three women win fame
and many envy them
and they remain caLM,
although Linda, Julia, Rachel, Matt, Mimi, Frank, and Judy, etc.
all rise higher 
and win fame lots more,
yet maNY PEOPLE appreciate
Lily, Stefanie, and Martha,
because they ARE mostly attacked
and they are mostly considerate.
today when the windows to the world is wide open,
Many more challenges rise,
ann folks always have faith
aND they hope that Mary Fallin
and Jill Biden shall be able to reduce the conflicts
and promote Christina, Lucinda, Beryl, Sheryl, Kara, and Gloria
so that more ladies speak of witty language
and more peace is preserved 
through relaxing efforts.

we never know who is outthere
spying...

Written for Poets United's Midweek Motif: Animation


short story slam week 32: how about stories or experiences unexpected?

Sensitivity

Word Prompts:  
Present
Icy
Embers
Moonlight


Sentence prompts: 
Then it hit me like...
The breeze came through the window...
I love...
Into the puddle...




here is my entry:


past memories resolved
by present cold rain,
not to stir the embers,
not to punch on icy wall,
i let my sensitivity hide behind the door

a shadow under moonlight,
the flash from the gap through the window
all darkness shakes me hard and wide
I trust faith
yet seek love,

the way a foot steps into the puddle
reminds me of the ripples
and some say, stay quiet,
others say, remain calm,
I choose autumn air, free of Facebook follower fight

what the Oklahoma City Bombing means to us

 Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial

Posted: Sunday, April 19, 2015 10:18 pm
It’s not fair for us, a group of college students, to pretend to understand the pain of April 19, 1995. Even those of us who grew up in this state cannot act like we fully comprehend what it means. But maybe the beauty from these ashes, the sermon in this tragedy, is that not only do we all know of this event, we all know someone who knows better than us. We might not feel to the degree that others feel, but we know the emotion and the importance behind commemorating the 20th anniversary of Oklahoma’s darkest hour.
We might not completely grasp how the bombing has shaped and changed this state, but every day we live in a place that has rebuilt and grown and transformed into the home we do know so well.
This is what the Oklahoma City Bombing means to us:
“My dad was a couple blocks from the building, and it was terrifying. He told me when I got older that the entire building he was working in shook. When I think of the bombing, it saddens my heart. Even though I’m lucky that I didn’t lose a loved one, I remember the tragic event along with those who did.”
— Rachael Maltby, photo editor

"I visited the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial as a teenager on one of my first trips to Oklahoma with my family. When I began to fully understand what happened that day, I realized how strong the people of Oklahoma are. I have seen that proven time and time again, especially after the Moore Tornado in 2013. The people of Oklahoma are strong, caring and great."
— Paige Worley, digital editor

 “When the Oklahoma City bombing occurred on April 19, 1995, it shook both the state and the nation. At that time, it was the largest terrorist attack on U.S. soil. But what came from the horrifying experience continues to define Oklahomans today: Resiliency.”
— Tim Ahrens, sports editor

I didn’t grow up in Oklahoma, and I wasn’t even born by April 19, 1995. My mom was pregnant with me at the time and has told me how scared she was for the families of those inside the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. But that day, a different family came together as Oklahoman displayed strength, courage and love, unifying the state in a time of tragedy. I likely will never fully comprehend what happened that day, but I am honored to be a part of this Oklahoma family that continues to show those same traits 20 years later.”
— Nathan Ruiz, assistant sports editor
I never cease to be amazed by how strong Oklahomans are. As someone who grew up in Dallas, I had limited knowledge of the OKC bombing. My reaction to gathering knowledge of what happened and what followed was a familiar feeling. It’s the same way I felt when I saw Oklahoma come together following the second Moore tornado and when OSU united to honor a pair of fallen Cowboys. After tragedy, Oklahomans only know how to come together and help each other rebuild. As former President Bill Clinton said, “… we should all live by the Oklahoma Standard — service, honor, kindness.”
— Kieran Steckley, chief content editor
 “I was only 2 when a bomb went off near the Alfred P. Murrah building in Oklahoma City. I don’t remember where I was or what I was doing, but I do have memories of growing up with people who do.
“My earliest memory of the tragedy comes from when I was 8. Living in Edmond, my parents’ landlords told me how their house shook from the explosion. What I remember most from the story is how quickly they reached out to help victims and their families. They weren’t trained first responders, and they didn’t know anyone affected by the bombing. They were just average residents who wanted to help their neighbors. I’ve come to learn this kind of reaction is the norm, not the outlier.
“For all of our faults, we will always look after each other in times of need.”
— Kassie McClung, managing editor
“Growing up in Oklahoma, I’ve been reminded of the despicable tragedy that occurred on April 19, 1995, every year for as long as I can remember. The details still faze me. The photos are still jarring, and I am still unable to visit the memorial without tearing up. The tragedy still breaks my heart. Each year, the anniversary also serves as a humble reminder to cherish the moments I have with my family and friends and never take those moments for granted. It’s also an opportunity for me to reflect on the strength of my city as I’ve watched it grow and bounce back over the 20 years of my life.  I am proud to be from such a resilient community, and I will never forget.”
Kaelynn Knoernschild, news editor

“I was not even 2 years old and had no concept of what suffering was when 168 people died as a result of another man’s madness. I didn’t know much about the events of that day and what happened in the aftermath until I came to Oklahoma three years ago.
“Since, I’ve come to know incredible people whose lives have been impacted by that day. I’ve lived for a summer in Oklahoma City, seen and experienced the beautiful place that has risen from the rubble. Those 168 are not forgotten. They are everywhere. The memory of the bombing and those who died that day is omnipresent.”

A Song For Fathers Who Love and Care!

 


Fathers carry hearts of gold,
To make a family complete.
They brave the winter cold,
Enduring summer heat.
.
Fathers are busy, but
There's always time for us.
They face the uphill trials
And barely fuss.

Fathers are awesome friends
making the ends meet,
They bring home love and meat,
With a father, fun never ends.

education about moore

 

Higher education

The only post-secondary school physically within Moore is the Hillsdale Free Will Baptist College which has an enrollment of about 225. Moore's neighbor immediately to the south is Norman, Oklahoma, home of the University of Oklahoma. The Moore Norman Technology Center is a public career and technology education center. Its campuses however are outside of Moore in Norman and South Oklahoma City.

Primary and secondary schools

Moore Public Schools has three high schools: Moore, Southmoore, and Westmoore; six junior high schools: Brink, Central, Highland East, Highland West, Moore West, and Southridge; and 24 elementary schools: Apple Creek, Briarwood, Broadmoore, Bryant, Earlywine, Eastlake, Fairview, Fisher, Heritage Trails, Houchin, Kelley, Kingsgate, Northmoor, Oakridge, Plaza Towers, Red Oak, Santa Fe, Sky Ranch, Sooner, South Lake, Southgate-Rippetoe, Timber Creek, Wayland Anders Bonds and Winding Creek.
On May 20, 2013, while classes were in progress, several of Moore's schools were damaged or destroyed by the 2013 Moore Tornado, most notably Plaza Towers Elementary and Briarwood Elementary. However, these schools were rebuilt and reopened for the 2014-15 school year.

Libraries

Moore is served by the Moore Public Library, which is part of the Pioneer Library System.[30]

Media

Two media outlets focus on the Moore community. Moore Monthly publishes a free monthly print publication while its website provides daily stories and videos about Moore, Norman and south Oklahoma City. The other media outlet is the Moore American.

Moore Veterans Memorial

The City of Moore has funded the construction of a memorial to honor America's veterans and their families. The city renamed JD Estates Park to Veterans Memorial Park, and a memorial is being constructed at the park entrance.
The main feature of the memorial is a 15-foot (4.6 m) black granite obelisk that has the inscription, "May this hallowed ground honor the sacrifice of America's finest veterans, civilians, and their families- past, present, and future. We will never forget." Another major feature of the memorial are five black granite tablets with the seal of the five branches of the American armed forces. At the center of the memorial is a flag plaza with a 30-foot (9.1 m) pole for the American flag and two 25-foot (7.6 m) poles for the Oklahoma flag and the POW/MIA flag. The flag plaza is surrounded by a polished concrete walking area with a stained five-pointed star stretching the entire width and height of the walking area.
A committee was formed to plan the second phase of the Moore Veterans Memorial. A campaign to sell bricks to be placed in the memorial was completed in early 2009. Over 190 bricks were purchased by supporters from the community and surrounding areas. The bricks were placed in the Memorial Wall and Phase II was completed in May 2009.
The Soldiers' Memorial was dedicated on May 15, 2010. It consists of four carved wooden soldiers representing the four major wars since the end of World War I. They include World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and the Afghanistan/Iraq War.[31]
After being destroyed by the May 2013 tornado, the park won the title of "America's Favorite Park"[32] in an online competition sponsored by Coca-Cola, beating out numerous other parks from around the country. First prize was a $100,000 grant, which was combined with other funds to cover the estimated $200,000 in rebuilding expenses. The first steps toward rebuilding began in November 2013, during a groundbreaking ceremony and the awarding of the grant to Mayor Glenn Lewis.[33] The park's playgrounds were estimated to be open to the public in mid-May 2014.[34]

    Duan Fang and students
    In 1906, Qing Dynasty minister Duan Fang submitted a memorandum to the Guangxu Emperor, proposing that an overseas Chinese school be set up for the purpose of spreading far and wide the enlightening influence of education and strengthening the emotional ties with compatriots overseas.
