There's a lot of power running through these lines and with hurricane season in its peak, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it continues to flow uninterrupted by tropical storms. This time of year always reminds me as to how susceptible we are to nature's wrath, as well as how dependent we are for basic survival. With Ana, Bill, and Claudette in today's weather radar, I'm double-checking emergency preparations!

Though this image coincides with our need for electric power, it also conjures up the concept of empowerment...and that is another desired entity! Wikipedia defines empowerment as "increasing the spiritual, political, social or economic strength of individuals and communities." Imagine the impact on our students if we could empower them (ALL of them!) with the love for learning - bet our educational systems would look very different! Goodlette Frank & Rosemary, Naples, FL
