The NYC DOE launched the citywide Respect For All program in 2007 in an effort to address bullying and harassment. According to the DOE:
"The NYC DOE is committed to maintaining a safe and supportive learning environment that is free from harassment, intimidation and/or bullying and from discrimination based on actual or perceived race, color, citizen-ship/immigration status, religion, creed, national origin, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, or weight."
Is it effective? More importantly, does it serve all students, or just those identified as a protected class? Weigh in!

Redemptorist preacher and reformer. He was born on December 26,1751, at Taswitz, Moravia, the ninth child of a butcher and his wife and was baptized John. His family name was originally Dvorak, but was changed to the German Hofbauer. He was apprenticed as a baker in his youth, and later became a hermit near Bruck, Austria. As part of his so-called Josephinist policies, Austrian Emperor Joseph II abolished hermitages, and Clement went to Vienna, where he and a friend, Peter Kunzmann, received permission from Bishop Chiaramonti of Tivoli, Italy, to live in a hermitage. Bishop Chiaramonti later became Pope Pius VII. After studying at the university of Vienna, Austria, and in Rome, Clement and another friend, Thaddeus HubI, entered the Redemptorist Order and were ordained in 1785. They were stationed in Vienna, but Emperor Joseph II closed religious foundations, so they were sent to Courtland. Peter Kunzmann joined Clement as a lay brother, and the three were sent to St. Benno's Church in Warsaw, Poland, to begin two decades of missionary labors. Clement preached, built orphanages and schools, and established a vast Redemptorist presence in the city. Napoleon suppressed all religious institutions, and Clement and the Redemptorists were imprisoned in 1808, each one then exiled to his own native land. Clement went to Vienna, where he became the chaplain of the Ursulines and pastor of the adjoining parish. He became known for his holiness and zeal. Clement died in Vienna on March 15. He was canonized in 1909.

Our intentions are pure...
SImply Grace honors diversity in faith and experience by providing a sacred space of kindness, compassion, love and hope for humanity. The Blessing Circle is a divine interruption, a gentle reminder of the abundant grace present in our lives. Faith is when we close our eyes and open our hearts...to be vulnerable, to surrender, to trust as we lean back into the arms of grace and God.
Joining Nancy Feth this morning is a dear friend and colleague Vera Cornish, Publisher of the Urban Connection, Harrisburg, PA who knows the power of hitting the pause button to allow space for rejuvenation and restoration ~ mind, body and spirit... This is a shout out to all the social entrepreneurs who have a heart for blending community work with business and are hungry for quiet spaces to renew the soul.
Life in the 21st century is accelerating... Change has become the new normal. What sustains us? A simple pause out of the ordinary routine can be life changing. Taking time to pause, breathe and connect to ourselves, one another and God in quiet reflection and gratitude is a gift that keeps on giving.
The moment faith becomes a reality in our vision, we begin to see the invisible, believe the impossible, and do the incredible...breathing grace into our hearts and our very being. Grace is the light, the love, the hope, the faith that fills each of our souls with peace. Moment by moment notice the extraordinary, life is a beautiful wonder...feel its divine miracle. This is Simply Grace...

Power and authority can be experienced from many different chanels, most of them coming from what the world has to offer. Can we list them? Well, there is "Self-power" which is the preferred choice for most; there are any number of sources that people will offer you (or sell to you), most of them coming from the world; and, then there is God. I wonder why I listed God last; one of the things that make you go, "Hmmmmm". How many have you chosen and used in your life time?
I see Christianity as being, well, simple! It's people that make it complicated and lessens the impact that Jesus would have us experience. Jesus left planet earth, an environment in which He could be in one place at one time in, order to send the Holy Spirit who could continue to be at many, even all places at once. The result is the beginning of a great mystery namely, that He, Jesus, would dwell in His discipes-always-forever! What a mystery the truth is, to be lived out from all who receive Him and believe Him and the Words He spoke. Difficult to understand perhaps, but wonderful when experienced.
It is precisely this promise from Jesus Christ that empowers us to experience an incredible life of meaning and purpose. Experiencing what this means is where we are heading in this and succeeding programs as we discover how we can answer the question, "Is Trust really all I need?" and, "Where and How do I get the power to live such a life?"
Good morning friends and BTR family! Welcome back to another episode of "Fuck Yo Feelings" Friday. In this episode, we re-visit the original "Give Him Free" case.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could simply lose our emotional baggage the same way our luggage gets lost by airline companies? If only we could turn off our emotions and memories that easily.
Even the most “perfect” upbringing has its baggage. It doesn’t require a traumatic event or abuse to have emotional baggage. Perhaps you grew up in what most would consider an ideal family environment. You mother was a stay-at-home mom and your dad went off to work every day. You had siblings and the family went to church at least three times a week. By all accounts, you had a great childhood … and you did. But that perfection may have spilled over into you adult life and you have discovered that your expectations for relationships are far too high. Why? You parents never allowed you and your siblings to see any conflict between them, so you grew up with an ideal that in a perfect relationship, there shouldn’t be any conflicts or disagreements. Not so.
You would be hard pressed to not know someone in your life that has experienced some emotional or even physical trauma during their formative years. Whether it involved the death of parent, a nasty divorce, physical abuse or severe emotional abuse, someone that we work with, go to school with or even live with has lived through something traumatic. The difference is how these individuals have dealt with the emotional baggage that comes along with the trauma.

Ali Wong: Baby Cobra - Premieres Friday, May 6, 2016
Unapologetic and nasty mom-to-be Ali Wong desperately wanted a conventional life. Baby Cobra is Wong's hilarious journey of how hard she worked to find Mr. Perfect, get married, buy a house and have a baby. But it all didn't exactly turn out how she planned. And while Wong complains that feminism is the worst thing that's ever happened to women, what's more empowering than being the first and only comic to film a 1-hour stand up special 7-months pregnant?
