Karilea,

My friend, I am the one who is honored by your request. I will search your posts to today.

I would like to work on a poem regarding freedom speech.  I was just discussing this very topic with a an extremely intelligent student at the high school where I substitute teach. I wanted to get her opinion, while keeping my opinions on the topic to myself. But how do we teach young minds to critically think if they cannot ask and discuss openly some of the appropriate questions of our time?  As a teacher, you must be on your guard to steer them away from such topics because you don't know when boundaries will overstepped. So, you avoid so much.

Congratulations to you, Karilea.  I will get back to you on this, hopefully today and no later than tomorrow evening.

I thought I posted a reply to this here.  Gee, I can't find it. Oh no, it is going to be another one of those days.  LOL

As discussed via e-mail, I would love to participate in your special day.

That last poem, "Through the Classroom Door" is for you...for this.  I think we so infringe on the Christians' right to freedom of speech in the classroom.  I have seen this first hand.  One incident stands out it my mind.  I had a senior class of honor students who wanted to debate the existence of God.  Why couldn't they?  I spent the entire weekend pondering this question.  The poem was not exactly from experience, for I teach only at the high school level, but in a sense it was from that day...the day we couldn't speak or think at an institution of learning.  

Anyway, I hope you understand this submission.  But I owe you a big thanks for making me think about this again and express it in poetry.  I am not sure if I captured the essence of what you wanted here for your great honor.  For me, I thought it expressed my thoughts on freedom.

-Patricia

Thank you very much, Patricia!  I am sure that with your submission, as with so many of the others, we will be able to show just what Passions is made of...I am quite excited about this little project, and if others have continued to read this thread, I have had to increase the size of the brochure.  It is most certainly turning into a delightful labor of love!  Thank you!

Hi Karilea, 't was nice talking to you the other day through messenger, LOL small world it is. Here's my submission, I edited a bit, think it's better this way.


Within yourself

When freedom's born in our soul
And democracy rests in our mind
Then, is there someone who can tell me
Why both are often so hard to find


If you don't like the title, think one up yourself, my mind is blanc at the moment, spend the whole day getting my computer to work properly, so I'm out of titles right now.




Like scattered leaves...my words will flow

Sunshine

Does this “Celebration of the First Amendment” have a particular political/religious agenda attached to it?

Could you clarify exactly what the aim is?

Here is the verse that I chose among all of your beautiful writings for your honor,
"To Thee, I Sing."

This should be the link:

Talk to you soon, my friend.  If I can help you in any way, please let me know.

Phaedrus, I do not believe there is any governmental, political or religious attachment to Salina Access TV's "Celebration of the First Amendment."  According to the person I spoke to, we are merely being asked to come and share our writings, art, poetry, prose, etc., and will have five minutes "mic" time for our public tv to film [over a two hour period] which will later be shown on our local TV station.

While many think that this has to be a resource for a political or religious theme, I am taking some short poems from those of you who wish to submit same, in hopes to get out the word that poetry is long from dead; everyone will be asked for their full name and city/town/country of residence.  I hope to give PiP a small boost, along with our own group, Prairie Inkwells, in order to encourage membership.

I believe their only "aim" is to share the talents of Salina to other Salinans who cannot get out to discover such for themselves.

If I learn of a change in their agenda that would somehow speak against our Freedom of Speech, you'll be the first to know.  I hope this answers your question.

Patricia, that is one of my favorite poems.  I'll make sure that it's put among the contenders.  Thank you for taking time on YOUR day to make this selection!

Karilea, even though I don't have any poems I think should be included, I have been keeping up with your progress during this process. I'm glad to see that it's coming together very well.

This is really special for your group, as well as for PIP to get recognition. I'm proud of you, friend.
Hugs,
Ethel

Karilea, I like so many of your poems that it's been hard for me to pick just one. The one that Maree said "Silent Utterances" was special to me, though.

Also, I have written a new Tanka in case you don't have all you are going to include. I would love for you and Bridgette to consider it.
Thank you.
Hugs
Ethel

Thoughts

Let us always remember
that we, and only we, can
master our fates.
For we are the leaders
of our souls.
Then, and only then, will
our tomorrows bring
Interludes of Integrity?
To share briefly, is better
than not sharing at all.

I'm not sure if this is what your wanting but i posted it anyhow,

It matters not how you answer, It matters only that i hear you.
