“If teaching is reduced to mere data transmission, if there is no sharing or excitement and wonder, if teachers themselves are passive recipients of information and not creators of new ideas, what hope is there for their students?”
― Paul Lockhart
“I think it’s good to have a lot of projects going at once so you can bounce between them. When you get sick of one project, move over to another, and when you’re sick of that one, move back to the project you left. Practice productive procrastination.”

“Science, in all its greatness, is still subject to human creativity. It starts the first moment a child tries to reach up and grab at the clouds. Soon, the child learns that his own hands cannot reach the sky, but his hands are not the limit of his potential. For the human brain observes, considers, understands, and adapts. Locked within the mind is infinite possibility.”
― Yukito Kishiro

“American culture in particular has instilled in us the bizarre notion that to ask for help amounts to an admission of failure. But some of the most powerful, successful, admired people in the world seem, to me, to have something in common: they ask constantly, creatively, compassionately, and gracefully. And to be sure: when you ask, there’s always the possibility of a no on the other side of the request. If we don’t allow for that no, we’re not actually asking, we’re either begging or demanding. But it is the fear of the no that keeps so many of our mouths sewn tightly shut.”
― Amanda Palmer
“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.”

It’s time… to remember that tragedy nurtures the good in all of us.
The Chardon Living Memorial Park was conceived by a community of supporters that suffered a tragedy and wanted to give something back to the survivors and the community.
On February 27, 2012, a school shooting occurred which resulted in children that lost their lives, families that lost loved ones, friends that lost schoolmates. A tragedy that redefined what was normal for a small community.
Concerned citizens have bonded together to provide a historic record, honor the innocent victims and deliver a message of hope for generations to come. This park is designed to provide a place for reflection and create spiritual awareness. The effort is to upgrade a walking trail, create an outdoor fitness area and a children’s playground complete with commemoration plaques and a welcoming statue.

Merriam Webster defines success as: the correct or desired result of an attempt.
Never let others define success for you, set a goal and reach it.
If you reached the goal (attempt) that you set for yourself then you have achieved success. If not, then don’t give up until you have and you will never fail.
You only fail when you give up.
“To be creative you actually have to do something.”
