Re: “VT All-Day Sacred Harp Singing [304]

Eva! Here is a long overdue thank you for this well-told story. You hit the nail on the head about this tradition in Vermont. We use this as a regular example when we go to explain the music to folks who haven't experienced it before. You are amazing.

Re: “An Epic Holiday Light Show [SIV472]

I don't know which I love more... the lights, or that bus load of seniors! Thanks for another great story, Eva!

Re: “Muslim Girls Making Change [SIV471]

These young ladies, and others like them, are indeed the future. I hope they continue writing, performing, speaking out, and mentoring. Many in older generations could learn a thing or 2 from them. I have no doubt they will go far.
At times, I'm concerned for those who wear hijab not because they want to, but because they are pressured (you can substitute many other representations of religious belief here, where young people are concerned-yarmulke, other headscarves and coverings, kuffi, bonnets and other "plain" clothing and coverings, attendance at religious schools, etc). I have no such concerns here. These are strong, educated young women who are embracing American culture, while retaining that of their ancestors and immediate families. Bravo MGMC

Re: “A 'Witch-In' Targets Trump [SIV465]

I bet not ONE of these women is a Wiccan. We. Do. Not. HEX. If we did, I'd hex these hags for defaming my religion. I resent this, and not just a little bit - and shame on you, Seven Days, for promoting this bigoted crap.

Re: “Teen Bards in the Borderlands [SIV463]

I'm 58 and wish I could go to a Bard Camp! I'd love to better my harp playing, tell musical tales, and learn the bardic arts. Plus going to Ireland .....all dreams I wish had been available when I was a teen.

Re: “Suicide Prevention Awareness Month [SIV457]

Thank you so much Cathleen. I'm so very sorry to hear about your son. It is heartbreaking how many people have been affected by suicide and depression. I hope that by talking about this more openly, perhaps more people will feel confident enough to come forward and ask for help when they are struggling. Thanks so much, wish you the best, Eva

Re: “Suicide Prevention Awareness Month [SIV457]

Eva,
This story is so well done; thank you! My heart goes out to each of these families and all those who are suffering silently. I too lost a son to suicide 6 1/2 years ago. He was 19 and held all of the amazing characteristics that are described about of those who die by suicide. He had a great sense of humor, loved and cared for people, and masked his disease as well. My hope for people is that they DO talk about their loved ones, get educated about signs of suicide and then talk with your friends about it. It may save a life.
Blessings to you Eva (and to all of us that are left behind)
Cathleen
