What my son taught me about peacekeeping

BY THIJS CREMERS
@ VOL 33 ON MAY 22, 2017

How do we experience the world around us? We see things the way we’re taught and we judge things in a way our environment has taught us. We live our life the way we are used to, but should we? What can change our perspective?

Thijs Cremers reflects on his time on a UN mission through the eyes of his children and explains how his son triggered his awareness about how to change our perspective.

Lessons Shakespeare Taught Me

BY KATE HECKNER ULREY
@ VOL 9 ON MAY 19, 2017

"My love affair with William Shakespeare began early. I was born in 1961. He was born in 1564. It was a May-December relationship."  

Kate Heckner Ulrey started life wanting to be Juliet, realized at one point that she had grown closer to Lady Macbeth’s age and now hopes to play Hamlet’s mother. She started teaching Shakespeare to children other than her own when her five daughters (Tess, Nora, Claire, Jane, Gwen) were young. What began as a one-time summer week of Shakespeare in 2001 shared with 6 other homeschoolers became The Backyard Shakespearean Players, a camp of 30 children aged 7 to 18, performing on a stage in a production that included dancing, stage combat, singing and dedicated adults and graduates of the program. We performed over 12 plays during that time.  In 2011, with the youngest two girls in high school, Kate went back to teaching English and directing Shakespeare at the high school level. Currently retired, Kate and her husband Joe, are fixing up a house in St. Joe.

How Hongkong movies shaped my life

BY TRAN DUY NGUYEN
@ VOL 10 ON DEC 11, 2016

What makes you who you are today? Is it your family, your friends, what you have done or the places you have been to?

For Trần Duy Nguyễn, the answer lies in the 90s Hong Kong movies. To sit around the TV, watching Hong Kong films being played by a VHS player is the kind of memories many 8x and 9x Vietnamese share. It is common, but also very personal since such movies are the main and almost only form of entertainment there used to be.
