What does Peace means to you? 

By Newark Tech and Bloomfield Tech Students 

Fall 2013

Remember Nelson Mandela 

One Bloomfield Tech Student commented:

Peace?  Trust no one

 

I can understand how you feel

There was disappointment and trouble in my younger life

But I never lost hope

 

At least I trusted myself

And behaved in such a way that others could trust me

If I want to trust others

I have to show others are able to trust me

 

We all go through life

Knowing some bad and good people

We learn and change

If we show kindness to others

There is a chance to receive kindness in return

 

I was sad about some of my troubles in life

But when I study about Nelson Mandela

Who passed away this month at the age of 95

I feel that I am a lucky person

 

He was jailed for twenty seven years

But was able to walk tall when he was freed

He overcame his bitterness

Trusted people and people trusted him

 

Mr. Mandela became the first black president of South Africa

People all over the world praised his good deeds

He is honored and admired

Just as Gandhi and Dr. King were admired

 

By being only a one term president

Mr. Mandela showed he was not greedy to hold on to power

He could have been President of South Africa as long as he wished

He prevented civil war between black and white South Africans

He helped to raise funds to educate poor African children

And encouraged the fight against Aids

 

He led very meaningful life

An example for others to follow

 

 Mr. Mandela said his 27 years in prison gave him time to think

He educated other prisoners and cultivated a little garden

 Growing tomatoes and other vegetables

His conduct earned him the respect of his jailers

 

President Barack Obama commented that

When you are with Nelson Mandela

You want to be a better person

 

I too want to be a better person

 After studying the life of Nelson Mandela

 

Please reconsider your comment

Peace? Trust no one

 

If you help others to the best of your ability

You will find others you can trust

Who in turn will trust you

And give help when it is needed

 

Then you will achieve a successful life

With happiness and peace in your heart

Thanks to Mr. Jonathan who helped to organize all the comments from Newark and Bloomfield Tech students.  Good teachers show concern and do more to advance their students both mentally and physically by preparing the students for future challenges.
