Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

The Youngest Headmaster in the World.

For some reason Sophie Sensuryia's blog reminded me of a story of another hero. I came across some months back on the BBC website.
Barbar Ali was one of the few children of his village who were able to afford the bus fare, clothes and costs to go the local school some miles away and so from the age of nine he took notes diligently in class and at the end of the day in his own village he set up a school where there children of the village after their chores were able to go and learn. He now runs a school of 800 children and at the age of 16 he is a very young head master. Through his vision and dedication hundreds of children have an education where otherwise some would not even have had the opportunity to learn to read and write.

It is a fantastic story and can be found here.

It makes me ask how much money does it take to run a school?

Have you ever read the children's book 'The Silver Sword' by the late Ian Serrailer? It is about three siblings who are separated from their parents in Poland during WW2. The elder girl sets up a school for the local children using pencils, paper and other items she begged from the Allied soldiers. It's fiction but I find it inspiring nonetheless. Your post reminded me of it so strongly.

Hello Riko Kamachi,
I haven't read this book but I do actually read quite a lot of childrens literature and this sounds like a story I will like. Thank you.
Best wishes PJE

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
