Banned Books Week

"Banned Books Week" is een fenomeen, dat we hier in Nederland voor zover ik weet niet kennen. Ik stuitte hier toevallig op, toen ik wat aan het surfen was. Banned Books Week is een evenement, dat elk jaar in de Verenigde Staten zo rond deze tijd gehouden wordt. Citaat: "Banned Books Week exists as a reminder to Americans that we cannot take our cherished rights to read, to think, and to express ourselves for granted. In our nation’s recent history, many works of literature have been removed from public library, bookstore, or school shelves in the name of protecting Americans from dangerous or scurrilous ideas." Het is dan ook een evenement om de vrijheid om te lezen wat je wilt te vieren. Die vrijheid was er lang niet altijd en moet nog steeds bevochten worden. Wat gebeurt er tijdens zo'n week? Er wordt o.a. voorgelezen uit boeken. Boeken, die ooit te maken kregen met censuur, of waar dat mee dreigde te gebeuren. "The books featured during Banned Books Week have been targets of attempted bannings. Fortunately, while some books were banned or restricted, in a majority of cases the books were not banned, all thanks to the efforts of librarians, teachers, booksellers, and members of the community to retain the books in the library collections." Het is goed om hier zo af en toe bij stil te staan en deze vrijheid niet als vanzelfsprekend te beschouwen. Ook hier in Nederland gebeurt er wel eens iets op dit vlak.

Once again, citing Gladwell's work, he concludes 'Who
we are cannot be separated from where we're from'and when
we ignore that fact, planes crash'', cultures clash, and individuals have difficulty
adapting and adopting, surviving and thriving in a society that pits their maternal culture against
that of the country they live in. These goons needed something to belong to'something that couldn't tell them they couldn't belong to it'so they felt some sense of identity
though their souls were mostly voids with cancer stick

There is one main stat that you'll need to know about, which is the maximum wattage that your power supply can handle. Look within and ask from your heart what role you played in creating a specific experience. Is it a way for you to feel superior or 'better than' them.
