When I got back to Boone after a stay at my parents house (once i came back from India) I was pleasantly and very surprised to fine Students for a Free Tibet posters up advertising for a concert that they were going to put on. It just so happens that while i was in India someone started an SFT at the local community collage. So i contacted them and joined in the meetings. We just had the concert this weekend and i gave a speech because i was the only person in the group who has actually seen a Tibetan. I talked about how the Tibetans in refuge we concentrating on keeping their culture, language, and religion intact and how determined and kind they were to me.
But it was an outdoor all day concert and it ended up raining twice that day, so that hurt our turn out, and all the vendors besides the 2 food vendors we had left after the second rain. We were planing of sending all the money we earned to the headquarters of SFT to help send someone to the Olympics to protest but with the rain i don't think we made much of a profit if any. But at least we spread the word some if nothing else.
Besides that my summer has been full. I got a job at the grocery store. And iv been raising Silk worms as well. They are so cute. I could sit and watch them for hours. I just find them fascinating. They are spinning cocoons now and it is awesome watching them do that as well. and in about 3 weeks i will have lots of silk butterflies. Then i will get to spin the silk into strands.
Ill put up pictures of the silk worms at flicker acount alliet03.
