Compassionate 7-Eleven Owner Who Fed Thief, Is Probably More Than An Indian, He Is Likely A Sikh.

This was a GREAT story. It made my day. So good to see that we still have decent, compassionate, charitable folks like he.

Mr. Jay Singh, please take a bow. You have done all of us Asians proud. Good on YOU.

This is from the story:

“He said, ‘I’m hungry. I’m stealing it for myself and my younger brother.’ I said you need food? I’ll give you food. That’s not a problem,” Singh said.

Mr. Singh, modestly, attributed this compassion and charity to ‘Indian culture’. That is true.

But, I have a hunch that it goes beyond that.

I cannot, alas, be 100% sure, but I suspect that Mr. Jay Singh is a sikh — despite the lack of a hat on his head, or a bracelet on his arm.

Jay Singh can very well be a Sikh name.

All ‘Singhs’ are NOT Sikhs, BUT ALL Sikh men are ‘Singhs’. Get that. Having a last name Singh is the norm for a Sikh man.

So, why am I making a big deal that he might be a Sikh.

Sikhs have a deeply ingrained tradition when it comes to charity and giving — especially food to the needy.

I know quite a few Sikhs. Most are AMAZING folk. Generous to a fault.

That bracelet they are supposed to wear bears testament to that. They wear it to remind them that that is the hand with which they do good.

Sikhs, because some wear turbans and have beards, are often mistaken for Muslims. They are not Muslims.

Get to know a Sikh.

This just happens to be a great time to talk about Sikhs. They have a major holiday, ‘Vaisakhi‘, that always coincides with the Sinhala New Year, coming up this Sunday, April 14.

Seems like such a brilliant idea. Based on Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) — a technology that I am very fond of. I even suggested that they use it in Keene for their famed Pumpkin Festival to accurately and instantaneously count the jack o’lanterns.

Yes, there will be a cost. But, McDonald’s and other fast food joints should really look into this to avoid what we encountered at the Alton McDonald’s earlier this month.

I saw this in a magazine earlier today and knew that I had to share it. Check it out.

Maybe we should use this with ‘Common Core’ rather than the infamous biometric bracelet. I am sure they can be made in lots of cool colors.

I Request That The Alton Central School Board Do A Joint ‘Common Core Curriculum’ With Alton State Rep. Jane Cormier.

As I have been championing for the last week, we all need to get educated on the ‘Common Core Curriculum’ before we start debating the pros and cons. So, I brought it up at the May 13, 2013 School Board meeting — as a request, after I was told by them what I can or cannot do in ‘Public Input’. That was fine. All I required was to make a request. That was duly noted. I want Jane Cormier to also do a presentation at that same meeting so that the school administration and her can sort out where they stand relative to each other. Jane’s husband, who is a School Board member, was very much in support. So this is all good.

Since the supposed ‘fact’ that the ‘Common Core Curriculum’ mandates that students wear a federally-monitored biometric bracelet was brought up at Jane Cormier’s Saturday meeting, I demanded that Devanee, who is being homeschooled, be provided with one — since I do not want her to be the only kid in Alton that was left behind. The Principal and Superintendent ‘deny’ any knowledge of such bracelets. How can that be? Is it possible that the biometric bracelet is a red herring? We will find out, though the meeting might not happen till July or August when most parents are enjoying the vacation. But, I will get to the bottom of this biometric bracelet issue.

As I said at the meeting, I am surprised that they are talking about a bracelet. Why don’t they just implant a chip? Kids will not be able to tamper with it.

Again Lets Get The Facts Right About The ‘Common Core Curriculum’ Biometric Bracelet.

Deanna took particular notice of all the concerns raised at Saturday’s meeting about the biometric bracelets that the kids were going to be forced to wear. As with the misinformation about school hours in Korea, I knew that this didn’t sound true. So, as I always do, I set to to check it out. This article spells it all out.
