Ike in Memphis pt. 2

As you read on Monday, last Thursday I was in Memphis, Tennessee organizing around our Student Conference on the Death Penalty (October 6th, MTSU campus).

Dinner time had rolled around and the Memphis heat continued to resonate. In fact, I recall the sun setting around 8 p.m. (maybe later?) and I reminisced the long summers I grew up with in the woodlands of Northern Virginia. At this point, I was eager to change out of my sweaty polo and khaki combination (the organizer combo as I like to call it); solace awaited me at the Emmanuel House Community. Here is their mission statement:

“Emmanuel House Community is a residential community in the Catholic Worker tradition. We seek to give each other mutual support in a life of discipleship and service. We share a life given to simplicity, reflection, prayer, nonviolence, and work that supports human dignity. Current activities include: Prayerful reflection four times a week, Weekly demonstrations for peace and the abolition of the death penalty volunteer work with ministries for the homeless, Maintenance of the Liberation Closet, a collection of clothing and shoes for use by indigent defendants appearing in court, Hospitality for visiting activists, people in need and peace and justice groups, Preaching and teaching at local churches and organic gardening on a small scale.”

The mission statement should also include: “You will live with two very cool people in one of the neatest houses (apartment on apartment technically) in Memphis.” Pete Gathje and Jenny Case of the Memphis TCASK Chapter reside in and run the house and are seriously, two of the coolest people I have ever met. Besides the fact that they are intellectual giants, they are warm and kind and exude what I can only describe as grace.

We had dinner at a local Vietnamese restaurant with some other Memphis TCASK activists. Conversation wavered between the city of Memphis, travel, relatives, soccer, Asian beers, and one of my favorite topic matters—geography. Because I won my 5th, 6th, and 7th geography bees (I lost my 8th grade one to my younger sister) I have a bank of geography knowledge. The primary utility of this knowledge is to show how awesomely smart I am—or to show that I would do well on a game show. After dinner, Pete and I discussed some of the schools that I could conduct outreach for the student conference and my excitement grew at the prospect of bringing even more young activists to Murfreesboro in October. I still have much unfinished business in Memphis, TCASK and non-TCASK related and I eagerly look forward to my next visit to the Bluff City.

Fairly, there are numerous aspects you would like to think about medications. All discount medicaments save money, but few online drugstores offer better deals than other online drugstores. There isn’t anything you can’t order online anymore. Remedies like Deltasone ordinarily is used to treat diseases such as eye problems. Glucocorticoids naturally occurring steroids, which are easily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. There are varied drugs for every conditions. Cialis is a remedy prescribed to treat many illnesses. What do you already know about long term side effects of cialis? What consumers talk about how long does it take for cialis to take effect? A general sexual complaint among men is the erectile disfunction. Sexual problems mostly signal deeper problems: low libido or erectile malfunction can be the symptom a strong health problem such as heart trouble. Albeit the erectile dysfunction itself isn’t necessarily dangerous, erectile dysfunction is sometimes one of the early warning symptoms of other underlying health conditions that can be highly dangerous. Unfortunately nearly all over-the-counter medicines have sometimes dangerous aftereffects, from muscle aches to death. If you buy any erectile disfunction medicaments like Cialis, check with a physician that they are sure to take with your other drugs. Do not take unwanted medications. Take Cialis to your local chemist’s shop which will dispose of them for you.
