Day Without Art 2006

 

AIDS RibbonOn December 1, the Austin Peay State University Gay-Straight Alliance will sponsor Day Without Art 2006. The event will be held in front of Trahern Gallery in the Trahern Building at Austin Peay State University. The community at large is welcome to attend. Day Without Art coincides with World AIDS Day and launches each year on the first day of December. Day Without Art culminates in an annual observance that publicly unites individuals and organizations around the world on the impact of HIV/AIDS, while simultaneously fostering AIDS awareness. 

A day without the art work that one is used to viewing on campus on a daily basis is a silent, yet poignant vigil to those who have died, or been infected from the disease. World AIDS Day bills itself as “one of the most successful international days with activities taking place in almost all countries at the national and local levels.” The theme for 2006, according to www.worldaidsday.org, will be: “Stop AIDS, Keep the Promise.” «Read the rest of this article»

Christmas Poetry

 

Christmas frog courtesy of http://www.animalden.com/Christ was born in a manger
He was sent from heaven
Rose from the grave on the third day
Instructed people on how they should live
Showed people how they should pray
The Son of God
Merciful to all
Ascended to His throne in heaven
Savior of all mankind

Three

Three magi searching for the Christ child
Bearing gifts of frankincense, and myrrh
Three in one – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
On a lonely hill, three wooden crosses
Three men, two thieves and one of innocence
A nail for each hand and a nail for the feet, a total of three
Three days later, Christ rising from the grave
Faith, hope, and love – the way it had to be

What are the forces that shape and propel American militarism? This award-winning film provides an inside look at the anatomy of the American war machine.

This is the next movie on my personal must purchase list! «Read the rest of this article»
