We believe that the essential elements of true brotherhood are love, charity, and esteem; love, that binds our hearts with the sturdy chords of fraternal affection; charity, that is impulsive to see virtues in a brother and slow to reprove his faults; esteem, that is respectful to the honest convictions of others and that refrains from treading upon that which is sacred to spirit and conscience; these are the triple obligations of every brother in the bond.
If you don’t snooze, you lose. Skimping on sleep can wreak havoc from head to toe. In fact, one study published last year showed that just one week of sleeping fewer than six hours a night resulted in changes to more than 700 genes. That’s alarming news, considering nearly half of Americans don’t bank the recommended seven or more hours of shut-eye a night, according to a recent survey. Read on for the nightmare-inducing truth about what could be happening to your body when you don’t get enough sleep, starting the very first night.
Well… I’m happy I barely sleep and work an Overnight shift…
I’ve seen incidents like this from all over the country where a school, most likely in the South, couldn’t do “Grease” because of “obscene content”
This is Connecticut we are talking about people. This also happens to be the high school I went to. The High School where I got my varsity letter and jacket in football, sang in Chambers Singers and won a few national championships with our choir. I also performed in the school musical all 4 years.
Seeing this story all over the NY Times and Playbill breaks my heart.
From the Times:
The principal of Trumbull High School in Trumbull, Conn., has become the latest administrator to cancel a drama club production of the musical “Rent,” which deals frankly with sexuality, drug use, HIV and love in the lives of straight and gay characters.
This isn’t the full blown Broadway show… this is the Student version that varies from the original Jonathan Larson production. There are a lot of changes that you can see here. I went and saw the Broadway version of Rent twice while on a field trip for school.
I wish there was a way these kids could put on the production outside of the schools walls. Maybe Ellen will swoop in and rent out a local theater for them to perform in. Maybe Carrie Underwood can come by and do a live version of the show from a warehouse on Long Island!
What I do know is that the show must go on. If you agree LIKE the Facebook page!
