ROSELLE, NJ - Harrison School celebrated their annual “International Day of Peace” event on Thursday morning, by placing pinwheels on the front lawn of the school.

This is the 9th year the students and staff have participated in the Pinwheels for Peace event. Students wrote their thoughts about war and peace, tolerance, living in harmony with others, anti-bullying, and anti-violence, on a slip of paper that was placed on the pinwheel. 

The students then placed their pinwheels on the school lawn where the words Love, Peace, a heart and peace symbols were chalked on the grass, for the whole community to see their messages of hope.

The students also performed a song called “Let’s Talk About Peace”. 

The pinwheels also serve as a visual statement from the youth to the community about the need for peace in the world.

Below are video highlights of the event.

Politics IS Government in Union County

April 22, 2018

After Bruce Paterson of Garwood was stopped from speaking at the Union County freeholder meeting of March 22 regarding the politics behind refusing to give the party line to a sitting freeholder I thought this brazen suppression of free speech could not go unanswered.

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo (Citadel Press, 1970)

 

How does a reviewer do justice to a book called “the great American novel”? I first read Johnny Got His Gun during the Viet Nam war, when young people, nationwide, were protesting fighting in a war that was a senseless waste of life; a war in which the United States had no business participating.

The Truth About My Reading

The Truth About My Reading

I didn't get my Composition and Literature teacher at Montclair State College at all. A crusty old man with a dour disposition, Mr. Smith always seemed angry and rude. He appropriately intimidated freshmen, even me, an English major, who found this common core course beneath my dignity. Frankly, as a graduate of Highland Park High School, and a survivor of Mrs.
