WOOSTER — Emergency management officials from Wayne County will be part of efforts monitoring activities during the Republican National Convention in Cleveland next month. EMA Director Joe Villegas and planner Barb Pittard will be among those who will work with the Cuyahoga County Emergency Operations Center. The convention will be July 18-21 in the Quicken Loans Arena, and because it is in Cleveland, the Cleveland City Emergency Operations Center will be the primary center. The RNC is expected to attract 50,000 people, and Cleveland is reaching out to other law enforcement agencies within and without Ohio to help provide security during the event.
Then, in March of 1797, Washington finally got to go home for good. There were no more wars to fight, and John Adams was going to be President. Washington had been a good President, but he was tired of it. Even his granddaughter noticed how happy he was to be home.
Furthermore, I am now inspired to help my fellow students and veterans to find a direction in their education. Every time I meet a fellow veteran, a deep connection forms. The comradery of the military, allows us to share stories of our service and the struggles to reintegrate back into society. These moments of sharing with others, has helped me and them realize that we are not alone. On the same hand, the community at Front Range has helped me to realize that I am not alone as well.
It was stage four bone cancer. The patient, Father Peter Pham, was from Vietnam but came to the United States in hopes of receiving free cancer treatment from a New York hospital. To his disappointment, the hospital had already given its monthly pro bono case to another patient. So, while waiting for the next available opening, he journeyed to Georgia where he had acquaintances. Father Peter visit marred with pain.
This happened all within the first twenty minutes of the meeting. Then the meeting consisted of having a few presenters make an appearance, discussing UW Extension Community Resources, UWEX 4H, base wage adjustment compensation plan for county employees, life insurance, eliminating/creating positions, rezoning and annual reports. Some of these topics including land rezoning may relate to environmental justice, depending on how the zoning effected communities in the area. If the zoning does negatively affect a population, the meeting is where the public can come to bring that to the board’s attention. Some annual reports covered base wage adjustment for county employees, which may affect economic justice of workers.
Then in 1831, the Black Hawk War began. The governor called out the militia, and Lincoln volunteered for service. Lincoln’s term of service ended after 30 days, but he re-enlisted, then a month later, he re-enlisted again. He served a total of 90 days, but saw no fighting. He later recalled that he had “a good many bloody struggles with the mosquitoes.”
I volunteered at Lenoir Memorial Hospital the Summer of 2015. I received about 58 hours of community service. Ms. Ann Durusky is the Director of Volunteer Services at the hospital. Volunteering at the hospital entails admitting and discharging patients from their rooms, escorting patients or guests to where they need to be, delivering emails, flowers, and gift baskets. At first, I was sent with the lead volunteer of our group and a partner, until I was able to remember what procedures to take in different situations.
Some places I have in mind to help me complete the hours are volunteering at the children’s hospital, animal clinic, and going to the library and help out there. In conclusion, I’d be honor to be able to be in NJHS because I love to help people out and I think it would be a great opportunity for me because it can teach me new things and get me more interact with the world. It would show me why it is so important to do community service and know that you are making an impact in someones and my
My motivation for pursuing a membership in National Honor Society is very simple. I want to help the community with a great group of people who agree that helping the community is a great way to spend time. I would love to be able to expand my resumé of community service skills. Volunteering for something I wouldn’t necessarily do would help add to my set of skills and experiences. Membership to the National Honors Society would mean a lot to me.
According to the New York Times in 2013 less than .5 percent of the U.S population serves in the armed forces. Thats all 6 branches: the Navy, the Army, the Marines, the Air Force, the Coast Guard, and the National Guard combined. It surprised me when I found this information last year because the military was, and still is, such a big part of my life. Just about everyone in my family is in or has been in the military. When I was still in elementary school my aunts and uncle were still active duty so I remember sending them care packages and waiting for them to come home.
Whenever there is a chance to assist, I gladly joined in on the event. So far, I worked with children with disabilities, the elderly, and also homeless people. I worked in a way so that the children and adults can acquire a break from reality, forget the disparity they may be encountering, and appreciate their time. Going out to comfort society brings me joy because they all have different stories and experiences, which are truly nice to hear. They truly do make a valuable impact on the community since they are striving for resolutions.
In my junior year, I began spending more intimate time with my biological father’s family. During this time, I grew close to my grandfather. Right as our relationship was blossoming, he succumbed to leukemia and died eleven days before my birthday. This event challenged who I thought I was and questioned what was important to me.
Veterans are an important part of society because they are the people who have served their country and have protected peoples rights and freedoms. Veterans are constantly struggling with illnesses, pains, and overall stress on the body and mind; they need a to be provided with free checkups and other surgeries that might be needed, they need to have round the clock support as most veterans have PTSD, and they should also be allowed to take their immediate family under their medicare plan. Veterans are the retired military personnel who have fought for the nation's freedom and the rights of people, during this fight sometimes they go through tragic events that could haunt them when they get out, also known as PTSD, so their medicare plan should cover PTSD support. Retired troops have witnessed a multitude of negative and traumatic events, whether that's losing a brother or sister of arms, getting wounded, or having to take a shot at someone else. These things could cause PTSD, a disorder where a person could undergo nightmares, heat sweats, public fears, or even thoughts and completion of suicide.
Physical and mental injuries affect a veteran's chance of getting a job drastically. These veterans have serious injuries that they suffered from defending and fighting for our country. Now when they return, they find that their injuries are causing them to be put at a disadvantage in the job market. The National Coalition for Homeless Veterans says that “47,725 veterans are homeless on any given night”. That is around 9% of all homeless people and more than half of that 9% is between 18 and 30(Faq About Homeless Veterans).
