He excelled at math and science classes in high school and served 62 hours leading the CAST tutoring program at Ocee.

Gratitude

“You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might pray also in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance.”
Kahill Gibran, The Prophet, 1923

Being grateful all the time isn’t easy. But it’s when you feel least thankful that you are most in need of what gratitude can give you: perspective. Gratitude can transform any situation. It alters your vibration, moving you from negative energy to positive. It’s the quickest, easiest, most powerful way to effect change in your life—this I know for sure.”
Oprah Winfrey, What I Know for Sure, 2014

“In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it’s wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything, 2006

Black FUR Day

What One Word?

'Imagine you and an intelligent robot are both before a judge who cannot see you. The judge will guess which of you is the human, and so will live, while the other will die. The judge is fair and smart. The judge says: “You must each give me one word from an English dictionary. Based on this word, I will guess who is the human.”'

What one word do you choose? Learn more at the BBC.

Love & Thanks to Libraries!

"My library gives me a free place to take the kids and feel like part of the community. "Being a stay-at-home mom can be very isolating."

"I’m dyslexic and needed extra help learning to read, but the library was my saving grace."

"I've begun to talk with the other parents/caregivers as well and begin friendships."

"Growing up my family couldn’t afford a home computer and internet service so the library is where I would go to research colleges and eventually apply for them.

"My parents could never afford to buy me all the books I wanted to read."

"It's a simple but meaningful way for me to honor my late father's memory."

"Books helped me feel a little less lonely."

"The library provides so many resources for me to practice a new language."

2018 National Book Award Winners

Secrets

George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four, 1949
“If you want to keep a secret, you must also hide it from yourself.”

Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin, 2000
“The best way of keeping a secret is to pretend there isn’t one.”

Joyce Carol Oates, Man Crazy, 1997
“Secrets have always been easy for me, it’s the opposite of secrets that is hard.”

Kazuo Ishiguro, Never Let Me Go, 2005
“Maybe all of us at Hailsam had little secrets like that — little private nooks created out of thin air where we could go off alone without fears and longing.”

Oxford Word of the Year

“In 2018, toxic added many strings to its poisoned bow becoming an intoxicating descriptor for the year’s most talked about topics,” the publisher said in a statement online Thursday. “It is the sheer scope of its application, as found by our research, that made toxic the stand-out choice for the Word of the Year title.” Other words on the short list include:

Gaslighting: The action of manipulating someone by psychological means into accepting a false depiction of reality or doubting their own sanity.

Incel: An incel is a member of an online community of young men who consider themselves unable to attract women sexually. Typically, they hold views that are hostile towards men and women who are sexually active.

Orbiting: Orbiting is the action of abruptly withdrawing from direct communication with someone while still monitoring, and sometimes responding to, their activity on social media.

Overtourism: An excessive number of tourist visits to a popular destination or attraction, resulting in damage to the local environment and historical sites and in poorer quality of life for residents.

Techlash: A strong and widespread negative reaction to the growing power and influence of large technology companies, particularly those based in Silicon Valley.

Why Elections Are Held On Tuesdays

Between 1788 and 1845, states decided their own voting dates. In 2012, then-Historian of the Senate Don Ritchie told NPR that strategy resulted in chaos, a "crazy quilt of elections" held all across the country at different times to pick the electors—the white, male property owners who would cast their votes for president on the first Wednesday of December. In 1792, a law was passed mandating that state elections be held within a 34-day period before that day, so most elections took place in November. (Society was mostly agrarian; in November, the harvest was finished but winter hadn’t yet hit, making it the perfect time to vote.)

With the advent of the railroad and telegraph, Congress decided it was time to standardize a date. Monday was out, because it would require people to travel to the polls by buggy on the Sunday Sabbath. Wednesday was also not an option, because it was market day, and farmers wouldn’t be able to make it to the polls. So it was decided that Tuesday would be the day that Americans would vote in elections, and in 1845, Congress passed a law that presidential elections would be held on the Tuesday after the first Monday in November.

Roswell Branch Renovations

Fulton County Board of Commissioners voted to make more adjustments to the ongoing renovations to the Fulton County library branch at 115 Norcross Street, Roswell, Georgia 30075. The Board approved an option that would remove and replace the building’s main roof along Norcross Street and raise the roof’s height as a new vestibule and entry doors would be constructed on that side.

“Roswell community leaders have made clear that they believe renovations to their library, which rests in the historic district, could transform the building into a welcoming community center and enhance the entire downtown area,” says Fulton County District 1 Commissioner Liz Hausmann. “I’m pleased the Fulton County Commission seized this opportunity to work with municipal leaders to ensure the library reaches its full potential in serving the community for many years to come.”

Early Voting Info

This is the final week to take advantage of Early Voting in Fulton County. Eligible voters in Fulton County have this weekend through next Friday, November 2, 2018, to cast an early ballot for the November General and Special Election. During early voting, any voter may cast their ballot at any early voting locationFor residents who chose to vote on Election Day 6 November, they must vote at their assigned precinct.

America's Best Loved Book

LOS ANGELES (AP) — “To Kill a Mockingbird,” a coming-of-age story about racism and injustice, overpowered wizards and time travelers to be voted America’s best-loved novel by readers nationwide.

The 1960 book by Harper Lee emerged as No. 1 in PBS’ “The Great American Read” survey, whose results were announced Tuesday on the show’s finale. More than 4 million votes were cast in the six-month-long contest that put 100 titles to the test.

The other top-five finishers in order of votes were Diana Gabaldon’s “Outlander” series about a time-spanning love; J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter” boy wizard tales; Jane Austen’s romance “Pride and Prejudice”; and J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings” fantasy saga.
