Fulton Commission Chairman John Eaves Joins Efforts to Commemorate the Life of Nelson Mandela

ATLANTAFulton County Commission Chairman John Eaves will join efforts to celebrate the life of former South African President Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.  The Chairman will join the World Affairs Council of Atlanta, in partnership with the Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel, as part of a community-wide memorial service for this world renowned human rights advocate.  The service is scheduled for Wednesday, December 11, 2013 at the Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel on the Morehouse College campus.

While the former president was still alive, Chairman John Eaves visited the prison cell that Mandela once called home.  “That visit to Robben Island further drove home to me the struggle and sacrifice Mr. Mandela took on behalf of freedom for all people in his homeland,” Chairman Eaves said.  “I’m excited to be part of this effort to remember his life and legacy.”

The World Affairs Council’s effort to remember Mandela comes a day after world leaders paid their respects to the former president at a memorial service in South Africa.  The event at the King International Chapel begins at 7PM at the chapel at 830 Westview Drive SW.

Healthy Doses of Challenge: How Summer Camp Develops Essential Lifelong Antibodies @camprockmont

Guest Blog Post by Shawn at Camp Rockmont

I must share with you that I have been exposed to a number of illnesses and diseases in my lifetime. Chickenpox, Diphtheria, Hepatitis, the Flu, Measles, and Mumps, to name some of the big ones. Then there’s Tetanus, over and over again. These have all been in my body. And they have very likely been in yours, too!

After all, that’s exactly what you receive in a vaccination. Your body is introduced to a very small dose of the disease-causing antigen. This is good because it is small enough for your immune system to develop antibodies to overcome that small dose and continue to develop more antibodies for the day that you might encounter a larger amount of antigens. This process builds your immune system.

If you are like me, receiving shots – no matter how good they are for you – is nowhere on my list of things that I enjoy. They do hurt, after all!

And yet, many parents find it worthwhile to vaccinate their children. They even take their babies back to the doctor for a variety of immunizations until the child is 6 years old. The infant or preschooler cries out as the shot is delivered, but the parent allows it. Many believe the vaccination is good for the child. Even more, they are convinced it is necessary.

Summer camp is also a type of vaccination, according to American Camp Association Board member Steve Baskin. Mr. Baskin explains that campers receive one developmental shot after another when they are camp. This is good and necessary. Homesickness is the perfect example. When a camper wrestles with homesickness in the camp setting, our staff view this as an opportunity rather than some devastating condition. They move right toward the camper, not to eliminate the homesickness, but to help him learn to cope with the very real things that he is feeling. The camper is developing antibodies, so to speak.
