To live factionless Is not just to live in poverty and discomfort; it is to live divorced from society, separated from the most important thing in life: community. My mother once told me that we can't survive alone,but even if we could, we wouldn't want to. Without a faction, we have no purpose and no reason to live.
The realization that I'd have nothing to take home had finally sunk in. My knees buckled and I slid down the tree trunk to its roots. It was too much. I was too sick and weak and tired, oh, so tired. Let them call the Peacekeepers and take us to the community home, I thought. Or better yet, let me die right here in the rain.
Who gets to be best-liked in any community? Who is the most trusted? Why, the man who does the dirty job, of course, and does it with a smile. The man who does the job you couldn't bring yourself to do.
Every person is defined by the communities she belongs to.
Have you found someone to share your heart with? Are you giving to your community? Are you at peace with yourself? Are you trying to be as human as you can be?
Invest in the human family. Invest in people. Build a little community of those you love and who love you.
Language is a bountiful gift and its usage, an elaboration of community and society, is a sacred work. Language and usage evolve over time: elements change, are reborn or forgotten, and while there are instances where transgression can become the source of an even greater wealth, this does not alter the fact that to become entitled to the liberties of playfulness or enlightened misuse of language, one must first and foremost have sworn one's total allegiance.
Dear Friends: As one who has experimented extensively with life in the home and community, using real people in true-life situations, I doubt that any playthings could prepare a child for one millionth of what is going to hit him in the teeth, ready or not.
In a school community, someone who reads a book for some secretive purpose, other than discussing it, is strange. What was she reading for?
Some people tried to hurt us to protect themselves, their family and communities...This was one of the consequences of civil war. People stopped trusting each other, and every stranger became an enemy. Even people who knew you became extremely careful about how they related or spoke to you.
I am twenty years old. To a world-wise adult, I am little more than a child. To any child, however, I am old enough to be distrusted, to be excluded forever from the magical community of the short and beardless.
I have amazing news for you. Man is not alone on this planet. He is part of a community, upon which he depends absolutely.
This law … defines the limits of competition in the community of life. You may compete to the full extent of your capabilities, but you may not hunt down your competitors or destroy their food or deny them access to food. In other words, you may compete but you may not wage war.
We set off towards the square, where a knot of old folks hovered around the local pigeon community, their lives reduced to a ritual of spreading crumbs and waiting.
Without the help of community leaders and residents, we can't help Point Breeze Avenue, ... We can't get the funding. We can't make it work. We need to bring the avenue alive again.
We need to engage local businesses and organizations throughout the community.
We've talked as a staff how important it is to do this one well. And I think it's real important for Grand Forks to show it supports high school basketball. Hopefully the people in the community will come out and support the tournament. Devils Lake losing in the boys regional didn't help our attendance. They were by far the best-followed team in the East Region tournament.
It is an honor to get it (the designation) and we hope it will instill a historic pride in our community.
showed the cracks we have as a community and that we need to be prepared at all times.
I've been involved in this community ever since I was old enough to know there was a community,
To think that there are four suites to be used as one is just fuzzy math. It wasn't in the spirit of the deal and it isn't what the community wanted.
High spending is not always bad and low spending is not always good. It depends on the make-up of the community . . . What are the goals of the district What types of students does the district have And what's going on in the community
The evidence base is showing you need to raise taxes, you need to pass laws and enforce laws on exposure to second-hand smoke. You also need to pass laws and enforce the laws on regulating media exposure and advertising regarding pro-tobacco, you need to develop a youth-focused cessation program as a community and probably at the school level, you need to develop public education campaigns in the communities and schools that are reaching the young people, and those campaigns need to not be focused on just boys.
The community was heavily involved in the process of identifying what our Loudoun brand is. North Star met personally with a selection of key business stakeholders, including members of the Board of Supervisors, the Chamber of Commerce, our Economic Development Commission, Loudoun County staff, and business leaders that play a key role in the county.
It's an incredible opportunity for the community and an incredible opportunity for young people. There are a lot of things to learn while implementing a radio station.
We want to complement development in the region. The University's designation as one of the country's most entrepreneurial campuses suggests to us a portion of the additional property should be considered for business and research innovation opportunities that involve interactions between the University and the local community.
We expect to have a great crowd to help us proclaim the glory of God and thank Him for allowing us to see His vision fulfilled. We hope everyone will come out - the entire community is invited to share this day with us.
The council knew there are things missing in the community for teens to do. So money is being put aside for a teen center. Jill Rogers is putting it together.
I don't worship Catholicism for Catholicism's own sake. I have felt the need to experience a sense of belonging with a religious community, because my parents were convinced atheists.
Climate change is also clearly a matter of huge interest and concern for the scientific community.
