1) Malala Accepts Nobel Peace Prize
2014 Nobel Peace Prize recipient Malala has started a new movement called #TheLast child denied an education.
I have joined, and I’m asking you to stand with me.
Here’s what Malala said that inspired me to act. I hope it inspires you as well:
“I had two options, one was to remain silent and wait to be killed, the second was to speak up … and wait to be killed.”
“I chose the second one. I decided to speak up … so it becomes the last time that we see a child deprived of education”
“Let this end with us. And let us begin this ending … together … today … right here, right now.”
The video of her amazing speech is now featured on the homepage http://poweroften.us/
2) East Ramapo Underground Radio Today
The next East Ramapo Underground Radio Show is this Friday, December 12 at 10am on WRCR-1300AM. Many things have happened since the last show. Most importantly is the Fiscal Monitors’ Report about the school district. We will discuss what we like and don’t like about his report.
Who will be the Heroes and Zeroes of the month? Who gets coal in their stocking this year?
The number to the show is 845-362-0013
