The Advocate and Area Bluegrass Festival that was held last year was a great success. In order to have another one this year we need volunteers to help get it together and to help work that weekend.

If you would like to help give me a call at 392-2599 or e-mail me at t.gulliver@ns.sympatico.ca. If we dont get any volunteers we wont be able to hold another one this year.

Well, thats it for this week. I hope you all have a wonderful week and Ill leave you all with this thought that I found.

The poet e.e. cummings once said that in a world that is doing its best night and day to make you into everybody else, trying to be nobody but yourself means to fight the hardest battle that any human being can fightand the battle never ends.

Psychiatrists tell us that the refusal to be oneself is a commonplace problem and a major cause of inferiority complexes, feelings of insecurity, personal frustrations and even anti-social behavior. In the words of one prominent practioner, The greatest tragedy in life is that while we were born originals, we die carbon copies.

It seems that while God works to bring out our uniqueness, we work to be like everybody else.

Organizations: Advocate District School Safe Grad, Advocate District Schools Student Council, Chignecto ATV Club Advocate Baptist Church
