“Power is a poison well known for thousands of years. If only no one were ever to acquire material power over others! But to the human being who has faith in some force that holds dominion over all of us, and who is therefore conscious of his own limitations, power is not necessarily fatal. For those,
however, who are unaware of any higher sphere, it is a deadly poison. For them there is no antidote.”

–Alexander Solzhenitsyn, from “The Gulag Archipelago,” vol. 1 (1974).

Nov. 7: The Flagler Education Foundation leads one of its bi-monthly free tours of the school district's Classroom to Careers Flagship Programs. Each public school offers a unique Flagship Program, which allows students unique opportunities to discover paths that lead them from the classroom to career success. The tours visit one or two schools at a time, with student ambassadors that take the group on a guided tour of their programs. Community members are able to interact with the students, the Education Foundation, and school staff to ask questions about the programs. The goal is to inform the public of the programs students participate in from Kindergarten through high school. There are currently 23 programs spread over all nine traditional public schools. Anyone interested in participating may contact the Education Foundation's Shelley Wheeler at wheelers@flaglerschools.com or 386-437-8929 x1123, for the time and location to meet. Per school safety guidelines everyone will need to bring a picture ID to enter the schools.

Palm Coast Construction and Development Progress Reports

Updates of ongoing permitting, construction and development projects in Palm Coast usually run here, along with a link to the city’s Week in Review. But the Week in Review, under the guise of being modernized, has become flashier and power-point like while becoming less substantive and dumbed down. We may or may not link to it in future. Here’s a summary of the latest developments as of Oct. 6

    @Today’s quote reminded of other wisdom

    Recessional
    By Rudyard Kipling

    1897

    God of our fathers, known of old,
    Lord of our far-flung battle-line,
    Beneath whose awful Hand we hold
    Dominion over palm and pine—
    Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
    Lest we forget—lest we forget!

    The tumult and the shouting dies;
    The Captains and the Kings depart:
    Still stands Thine ancient sacrifice,
    An humble and a contrite heart.
    Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
    Lest we forget—lest we forget!

    Far-called, our navies melt away;
    On dune and headland sinks the fire:
    Lo, all our pomp of yesterday
    Is one with Nineveh and Tyre!
    Judge of the Nations, spare us yet,
    Lest we forget—lest we forget!

    If, drunk with sight of power, we loose
    Wild tongues that have not Thee in awe,
    Such boastings as the Gentiles use,
    Or lesser breeds without the Law—
    Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
    Lest we forget—lest we forget!

    For heathen heart that puts her trust
    In reeking tube and iron shard,
    All valiant dust that builds on dust,
    And guarding, calls not Thee to guard,
    For frantic boast and foolish word—
    Thy mercy on Thy People, Lord!

    Source: A Choice of Kipling’s Verse (1943)
