Citizenship is the American ideal. There may be an army of actualities opposed to that ideal, but there is no ideal opposed to that ideal.” –G.K. Chesterton

From the Northeast Times:
“No pictures, just voices tell the story of the Holocaust — voices of Warren G. Harding Middle School students entwined with the haunting, heart-wrenching voices of the survivors themselves in an award-winning podcast. Eighth-graders Adriel Carrasco, Edward Foley, Lee Martin, Sarina McDuffy and Bria Waters volunteered to work on the podcast (a digital audio broadcast file played back on a computer or MP3 player) when reading teacher Victoria Monacelli told them about the Mordechai Anielewicz Creative Arts Competition.”
