I would be 70-347 exam dumps in Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controllers here Tpexam forever and I just had so much to do. Chirsmas was beginning Tpexam to become 300-085 Dumps such a drag. I CISM exam questions kinda wished that 70-347 exam dumps I could Prokeyshop just sleep through Chirsmas. But I hurried the 300-085 Dumps best I could through all the people to the toy department. Once again I kind 300-085 Dumps of mumbled3 to myself at the Prokeyshop prices of all these toys, and wondered if the grandkids would even play whit4 them. I 70-347 exam dumps found myself in the doll aisle5. Out of the corner of my eye I saw a little 70-347 exam dumps boy about 5 holding a lovely doll.He Tpexam kept touching6 her hair and he held her so Prokeyshop gently. I could not seem to help myself. 70-347 exam dumps I just kept loking over at Catalyst 9800 Controllers the little boy and wondered who the doll CISM exam questions was for. Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controllers I watched him turn to a woman and he called his aunt by name and said, Prokeyshop “Are Tpexam you sure I CISM exam questions don’t Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controllers have enough Catalyst 9800 Controllers money?” She replied a bit impatiently, “You know that you don’t have enough money for it.” The aunt told the little boy not to go Catalyst 9800 Controllers anywhere that she had to 300-085 Dumps go and get some other things and would be back in a few minutes. And then she left the aisle. The boy Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controllers continued to Catalyst 9800 Controllers hold the doll. Tpexam After a bit CISM exam questions I asked the boy who the doll was for. He said, “It is the doll my sister wanted so badly for Chirsmas. She just knew that Santa would bring it. “I told him that maybe Santa was going to bring it . Catalyst 9800 Controllers He said, “No, Santa can’t go where my sister is…. I have to give the Catalyst 9800 Controllers doll to my Mama to take to Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controllers her. “I asked Prokeyshop him Prokeyshop where Catalyst 9800 Controllers his siter was. He looked at me with the saddest eyes and said, “She 300-085 Dumps was gone to 70-347 exam dumps Catalyst 9800 Controllers be with Jesus.

My CISM exam questions Daddy CISM exam questions says that Mamma is going to have to Prokeyshop go be with her.” My Prokeyshop heart nearly stopped beating. Then the boy looked at me again and said, “I told my Daddy to tell my Mama not to go yet. I told him to tell her to CISM exam questions wait till I got back Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controllers from the store.” Then he asked me if i wanted to see his picture. I told him I’d love Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controllers to. He pulled out some picture he’d had taken at the front of the store. He said, “I want my Mama to take this with her Tpexam so the dosen’t ever forget me. I love my Mama so very much and I wish she dind not have to leave me.But Daddy says she will Tpexam need to be with my sister.” I saw that the little boy had 70-347 exam dumps lowered CISM exam questions his head and had grown so qiuet. While he was Tpexam CISM exam questions not looking I reached into my purse Tpexam and pilled out a handful Tpexam of bills. I asked the little boy, “Shall we CISM exam questions count that miney one more time?” Prokeyshop He grew excited and said, “Yes,I just know it has to be enough.” So I slipped my CISM exam questions money in 70-347 exam dumps with 300-085 Dumps his and we 70-347 exam dumps began to count it . Of course it was plenty CISM exam questions for the doll. He softly said, “Thank Prokeyshop you Jesus for giving me Tpexam enough money.” Then the boy said, “I just asked Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controllers 300-085 Dumps Jesus to give me Catalyst 9800 Controllers enough money to buy this doll so Mama Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controllers can take it with her Tpexam to give my sister. Catalyst 9800 Controllers And Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controllers he heard my Prokeyshop prayer. I CISM exam questions wanted to ask him Prokeyshop give 70-347 exam dumps for enough to buy my Catalyst 9800 Controllers Mama a white rose, but I Tpexam Catalyst 9800 Controllers didn’t ask him, but he gave me enough to Prokeyshop buy Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controllers the doll and a Tpexam rose for my Mama. Catalyst 9800 Controllers She loves white rose so much. 300-085 Dumps “In a Catalyst 9800 Controllers few minutes the aunt came back and I wheeled my cart away. I Catalyst 9800 Controllers could 70-347 exam dumps not keep from thinking about the little boy as I finished my Tpexam shoppong in Tpexam a Prokeyshop ttally different spirit than when I had started. And I kept remembering a story Catalyst 9800 Controllers I had seen in the newspaper several days earlier about a drunk 70-347 exam dumps driver hitting a car 300-085 Dumps and killing7 a little girl and the Mother was in serious CISM exam questions condition. The family was deciding on whether to remove Prokeyshop the life 300-085 Dumps support. Now surely this little boy CISM exam questions 300-085 Dumps did Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controllers not belong with that story.Two days later I read in the paper where the family had 70-347 exam dumps disconnected Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controllers the life support 70-347 exam dumps and the young woman 300-085 Dumps had died. I could not forget the little 70-347 exam dumps 70-347 exam dumps boy and just kept wondering 300-085 Dumps if the two 300-085 Dumps were somehow connected. Later that day, I could not help myself and I went Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controllers out and bought aome white roses Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controllers 300-085 Dumps and took them to the funeral home where the yough woman was .And there she was holding a lovely white rose, the beautiful doll, and the picture 300-085 Dumps of the little boy in the store. I left there in tears, thier life changed forever. The love that little boy had for his little sisiter and his mother was overwhel. And in a split8 second a drunk driver had ripped9 the life of that little boy to pieces.

Unity Week was the brain-child of the Multicultural Advisory Committee. 

“The main reason for this week was to remind the campus about the need for unity,” sophomore committee member Danielle Craig said.

The first event took place on Nov. 2. It was a game called “Archie Bunker’s Neighborhood.” The concept was taken from the show “All in the Family” and the main character, Archie Bunker, an infamous racist bigot. 

People at the event were broken into several groups and the room represented a neighborhood. When the groups moved around the neighborhood, they were treated according to the stereotype they fit and many students felt slighted at times.

It was an effective way to start the week that would address disunity and create harmony.
During lunch on Nov. 3, Mix-It-Up Day allowed people of different social circles to sit together. 

A discussion, “Real Talk: Women in the body of Christ,” took place on later that evening. The theme was reiterated in prayer committee member Angeley Crawford’s prayer: “Bind us together, Father.” 

The panel talked about the importance of a woman understanding her role in the body of Christ.

The Reconciliation service on Nov. 4 was truly blessed.  After an arousing preliminary service featuring Precious Movements, Resident Director Theresa Noye spoke on “Unification through the Love of Christ.” 

The Jammin’ Java was on fire on Nov. 5 with the Unity Jam.  It featured many faces from around campus including “Lady Rose” Brown, Crawford and junior Stephanie Ciner among others.

The last events of the week were the Privilege Walk and the Unity Dinner. 

The former was a game intended to show that we can never judge someone based on who they seem to be.  Everyone was told to stand in a straight line.  Then, according to each question, each individual person would take a step forward or backward. 

“Every time I play this game, I’m always at the front,” The game leader, junior Jen Kane, said. “It made me aware of who I was, and taught me how not to be judgmental of others whom I don’t know.”

Unity Week ended with a great dinner made by Jackie Irving,  director of the Multicultural Advisory Board.

Unity Week truly accomplished what it set out to do.  It made others aware of the need for unity and everyone that was touched by the events of the week was set on a path to make a change towards unity.
