Eastern’s coffeehouse “puts a little love in it”

I Examguideview hurried into the local department store AWS-SYSOPS questions & answers to grab1 some last minute Catalyst 3850 Configuration Chirsmas gifts. I looked at all the people Examdumpsview and grumbled2 70-533 exam question to Exampdfview myself. I would be in here Examdumpsview forever and Cisco Catalyst 3850 NetFlow configuration I just had so much to do. Chirsmas was beginning Cisco Catalyst 3850 NetFlow configuration to Cisco Catalyst 3850 NetFlow configuration become such a drag. I kinda wished that I could just sleep Examguideview through Chirsmas. But I hurried the best I could through Catalyst 3850 Configuration all the people to the toy Examguideview department. Once again I kind of mumbled3 to myself at the prices of Catalyst 3850 Configuration all these toys, and wondered if the grandkids would even play Exampdfview AWS-SYSOPS questions & answers whit4 them. I found myself in Examguideview the doll aisle5. Out of the corner 70-533 exam question of my eye I saw a little Cisco Catalyst 3850 NetFlow configuration Catalyst 3850 Configuration boy about 5 holding a lovely doll.He kept touching6 her hair and Examdumpsview he held her so AWS-SYSOPS questions & answers gently. I could not seem to help myself. AWS-SYSOPS questions & answers I just kept loking over at the little boy and wondered who Examguideview the Exampdfview doll was for. I watched him turn to 70-533 exam question a woman and he called Cisco Catalyst 3850 NetFlow configuration his Catalyst 3850 Configuration aunt by name and Examdumpsview said, “Are Examdumpsview AWS-SYSOPS questions & answers you sure Examguideview I don’t have enough money?” She replied a bit impatiently, “You know that you don’t Catalyst 3850 Configuration have Examdumpsview enough money for it.” The aunt told the AWS-SYSOPS questions & answers Exampdfview little boy not 70-533 exam question to go Catalyst 3850 Configuration anywhere that she had to Examdumpsview go and get some other things and would be back in a few minutes. And then she left the aisle. The 70-533 exam question boy continued to hold the doll. After Examguideview a Exampdfview bit I asked Examdumpsview the boy who the doll was for. He said, “It Examguideview is the doll my sister 70-533 exam question 70-533 exam question wanted so badly for Chirsmas. She just Exampdfview knew that Santa would bring Catalyst 3850 Configuration it. “I told him that maybe Santa Exampdfview was going to bring it . He said, “No, Santa can’t Examguideview go where my 70-533 exam question sister is…. I have to give Examdumpsview the doll to my Mama to take to her. “I asked him where his siter was. He looked at Exampdfview me with the saddest Catalyst 3850 Configuration eyes 70-533 exam question and Examguideview said, “She Exampdfview was gone to be with Jesus.

My Daddy says that Mamma is going to have to go be with Exampdfview her.” My heart nearly stopped beating. Then the Catalyst 3850 Configuration boy looked at me again and said, “I told my Daddy to tell my Mama not Catalyst 3850 Configuration to go yet. I Cisco Catalyst 3850 NetFlow configuration told him to tell her 70-533 exam question to wait till I got back from the store.” Then he asked me if i wanted to Cisco Catalyst 3850 NetFlow configuration see his picture. I AWS-SYSOPS questions & answers told him I’d love to. He pulled out some picture he’d 70-533 exam question had taken at the front of the store. He said, “I want my Mama to take this with her so the dosen’t ever forget me. I love my Mama so AWS-SYSOPS questions & answers very much and I Cisco Catalyst 3850 NetFlow configuration wish she Examdumpsview dind not have to leave me.But Daddy Cisco Catalyst 3850 NetFlow configuration says she will need to be with my Exampdfview AWS-SYSOPS questions & answers sister.” I saw that the little boy had lowered his head and had grown so qiuet. While he Cisco Catalyst 3850 NetFlow configuration was not Cisco Catalyst 3850 NetFlow configuration looking I reached into my purse and pilled out a handful of bills. I asked the little boy, “Shall we Examguideview Examdumpsview count that miney one more time?” He grew excited and said, “Yes,I just know it has to be enough.” So I slipped my money in with his and we AWS-SYSOPS questions & answers Cisco Catalyst 3850 NetFlow configuration Exampdfview began to count it . Of course it was plenty for the doll. He Exampdfview softly said, “Thank you Jesus for giving me 70-533 exam question enough money.” Then the boy said, “I Exampdfview just asked Jesus to Examguideview give me enough money to buy this doll so Mama 70-533 exam question can take it with AWS-SYSOPS questions & answers her to give my sister. And Examdumpsview he AWS-SYSOPS questions & answers heard my prayer. I wanted to ask him give for enough to buy my Mama a white rose, Catalyst 3850 Configuration but I didn’t ask him, but AWS-SYSOPS questions & answers he gave me AWS-SYSOPS questions & answers enough to buy the doll and a rose for my Mama. She loves Cisco Catalyst 3850 NetFlow configuration white rose so much. “In a Examdumpsview few minutes the aunt came back 70-533 exam question and Examguideview I wheeled my cart away. I could not keep from thinking about Examdumpsview the Catalyst 3850 Configuration Examdumpsview little boy as I finished my shoppong in a ttally different spirit than when I had started. And I Exampdfview Examguideview Cisco Catalyst 3850 NetFlow configuration kept remembering Cisco Catalyst 3850 NetFlow configuration a story I had seen in the newspaper several days earlier about a drunk driver hitting a car and killing7 a little girl and the Mother was Catalyst 3850 Configuration in serious condition. The family was Catalyst 3850 Configuration deciding on whether 70-533 exam question to remove the life support. Now surely this little boy did not AWS-SYSOPS questions & answers belong with that story.Two days later I read in the paper where the family had disconnected AWS-SYSOPS questions & answers Catalyst 3850 Configuration the life support and Examguideview the young woman 70-533 exam question had died. I could not forget the little boy and just kept wondering if the two were somehow connected. Later that day, I could not help myself and I went out and bought aome white roses Exampdfview and took Examdumpsview them to the funeral home where the yough woman was Cisco Catalyst 3850 NetFlow configuration .And there she was holding a lovely white rose, the beautiful doll, and the picture 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 Examguideview of that little boy to pieces.

Beautiful white lights, candy hearts, candles and pillows decorated the Jammin’ Java, creating the perfect atmosphere for the Student Activities’ second annual coffeehouse. As the event was held on February 10th, just a stone’s throw from Valentine’s Day, the theme this year was “Put a Little Love in It.”

The Jammin’ Java was even more full than usual, as crowds of Easterners dropped in to enjoy delicious treats and $1 off drinks. As if that weren’t enough, those in attendance were also blessed with the opportunity to hear a number of extremely talented students perform.

The night began at 8 PM. Each artist had ten minutes to take the stage—and take it they did. Audience members had the chance to enjoy the musical genius of sophomore Jared Gallagher, Audrey Gallagher, Steve Chandy, Megan Sherrill, Chelsea Davis, Michael Fuehrer, Josh Zimmerman, David Speak, sophomore Jenna Walthour, first year Corbin Payne, Justin Holdefer and sophomore Tevin Sharkey.

Jared Gallagher, who performed at last semester’s coffeehouse, gave excellent guitar and vocal performances of “Forever and a Day” by Far Less, “I Felt Free” by Circa Survive and “Drink In My Hand” by the Classic Crime.

Before and after the scheduled performances, the stage was open to anyone interested in taking the mic. For Paine, this was the highlight of the evening. Although he performed three songs during his 10 minutes (two originals—”Patience” and “Forget What I Said”—and one cover—”I Will Follow You Into The Dark” by Death Cab for Cutie), he also took advantage of the open mic time. When someone asked him to play “You’ve Got A Friend In Me,” he pulled off a phenomenal impromptu performance that got the crowd singing along. Payne had a great night and will “absolutely” be performing at future coffeehouses on campus.

Sharkey saw the advertisement for the “Put A Little Love In It” coffeehouse on the window of Jammin’ Java. He had never performed at an open mic or sang in front of people before, but he decided to give it a try. Sharkey and his friend sophomore Justin Holdefer played guitar, tambourine and African drum as they performed “Now That I Am With You,” a song that they had written for their girlfriends. Overall, Sharkey said, the night went well: “Everything looked very nice and homey … All the performers were amazing.”

Every last one of the musicians at the coffeehouse put on a great set, though many agreed that Walthour’s was their favorite. Providing both guitar and vocals, Walthour played “Tambourine Woman,” “The Water” and an untitled song.

“I love to share my music, and everyone [was] so supportive,” Walthour said. For this Valentine’s Day event, she dedicated her songs to Marcus Mumford: the man who she says is “forever in my heart.”
