How to beat bullying

Bullying. We have all heard the word, but do we really know what it means? The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (2018) vaguely defines bullying as unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance that causes distress or harm in the child being bullied. In reading that definition, we may conclude that bullying is some form of aggressive physical behavior towards another.

Following the Bergamini Family in WWII

Our influence in the South Pacific is hotly contested. The United States has been involved militarily in this region three times during the last century.

Be content by finding balance

The Jewish mystic Maharal observed the word "Shalom" begins with the Hebrew root word "Shin", indicating God's peace begins with balance. From that balance, we can transcend our current struggles and discover the joy, peace, confidence and security of being with God. However, without the balance that integrates us into being complete people, none can properly live in God's presence. Maharal contended that life should be spent seeking the balance point between the unhealthy extremes. A happy mid-point can bring contentment to life.

Love serves the beloved

The flowers have wilted and been thrown away. The chocolates have all been eaten and the box is gone. That special dress has been dry-cleaned and is hanging in a plastic bag in the closet.

Summer break is sadly coming to an end and school is about to begin. Starting to prepare ahead of time is important. Many of us like to stay up late during the summer, so getting your sleep schedule back on track is important before starting school again. You do not want to be drained during the first couple of weeks of the new school year.

I have long been fascinated with hourglasses. As a little boy, I can remember having an hourglass and turning it over and over again just to watch the sand slowly fall to the bottom. However, my fascination with the hourglass as a little boy is quite different from my fascination with the hourglass today.

Summer break is where a lot of memories are created and as time goes on, we tend to forget about them. Writing your most memorable and exciting memory down in a journal is what can capture your memories for a lifetime; it's also where you can tweak them a little to your liking.

Basic Training gives new Soldiers a card that defines their values. While every Soldier adopts the Army values, some take them to heart and make them personal. Others merely remember the acronym LDRSHIP to avoid push-ups.

America now has a high obesity rate, which is partially due to healthier foods being more expensive than non-healthy foods. A way to counter act this is try and at least eat one or two vegetables a day and be consistent when staying fit. Many people are into sports and are already in shape. But to those who aren't, and would like to experience an healthier version of themselves: You can stay in shape without being in sports. Going to the gym is an option, but many people feel intimidated, when in reality everyone is worried about themselves.

The start of summer was a bit rainy. Let's say it was raining a lot! The sun is out now and I'm loving it. Soaking up the sun is always fun. Get out doors and keep busy, there's always something to do, it's just a matter of actually being proactive and exploring new adventures.

It's the beginning of the month, which is one of the hottest months out of the year. During this time we spend a lot of our time outdoors. We go swimming at the pool, lounging on the beach, enjoying water activities outside, and maintaining our lawn as well. Skin cancer is real and we should always take the necessary precautions to avoid any type of health issues.

As we get older and are more involved in different things including school's social groups, sport activities and even a job; it becomes harder for us to actually read a good book. As much as I love reading, it can be difficult sometimes because I just want to watch some television or playing on my phone. Eventually, you'll watch everything interesting or what you want to watch isn't on, thus making it perfect for you to pick up a book and start reading.
