“Already, we have made an historic investment in education through the economic recovery plan. We have dramatically expanded early childhood education and will continue to improve its quality, because we know that the most formative learning comes in those first years of life. We have made college affordable for nearly seven million more students. And we have provided the resources necessary to prevent painful cuts and teacher layoffs that would set back our children’s progress.
But we… Continue

Today, a story on the new Apple device came out on the 12noon news that already has ¼ of my friends on facebook geeked and excited about being a future owner. Apple recently announced the new ipad which will be released this April. To sum up the device, an ipad looks like a Kindle, yet functions like a netbook, with its makers already bragging about the new “simple, closed internet device” as the “future of computing” while also launching an advertising campaign declaring the PC to be… Continue

an overwhelming amount did not know where Haiti was or had they ever heard of the country. Haiti is… Continue

The only adjective that adequately describes my current feeling toward my new internship is overwhelming. I searched through a thesaurus hoping to find a better word but alas it is the best one I found. The reason I hesitate to write "overwhelming" is because the word is typically associated with negative thoughts and feelings. However, I
prefer to put a positive twist on it. Thus, I am positively overwhelmed with my new internship.
Why so overwhelmed? Because everything is so… Continue

Below is a letter from Mike Fedele , founder and president of Life For the World.
This is my fourth update since the terrible earthquake shook the ground Southwest of Port Au Prince and stole tens of thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands of lives, and ruined millions of others.
We founded and built Maranatha Orphanage and School in Source Matelas, Haiti eight years ago after finding unwanted and abandoned children on the streets of Port au Prince. The number of… Continue

Today, millions of children return to an empty home after school. When the school bell rings, the anxiety for parents often just begins. They worry about whether their children are safe, whether they are susceptible to drugs and crime. In response to this pressing concern, many communities have created after-school programs to keep children and youth out of trouble and engaged in activities that help them learn. Recent polls have found overwhelming adult support to personally ensure access to… Continue

Martin Luther King Jr. was one of America’s most committed social activist in history. He fought for equality, freedom, and justice for all by organizing communities to apply principles of non-violence in order to achieve civil rights domestically. Dr. King devoted his life to social justice and taught us that through service, America’s issues of prejudice, discrimination, and poverty could be overcome. Monday, January 18th will commemorate another day of service in order to address our… Continue

“The true power of the internet is that it gives us the chance to do something different - focus on ourselves for a change. That indeed, would be visionary”.
I’m still in the process of understanding “the connection”, a new moniker that I have dubbed the whole social networking process of Cabrini Connections. Today, I was successful at explaining the connection to two of our new additions to Cabrini, Eunsoo Lee and Jawon Koo. Both have currently joined the… Continue

Trying to get people involved in nonprofit organizations such as Cabrini Connections can be difficult but I am impressed at what I have seen thus far. It has come to my knowledge that through networking and social media Cabrini Connections has become more well known, which gives me hope that as a result profits and volunteers will start to increase even more.
We all come from different backgrounds. And from our different experiences we became who we are today. I… Continue
