06/01/10 First International Video Conference: Greeenwich High School / Hiroshima

Greenwich High School is conducting an international video conference
(via Skype) with a survivor of the Hiroshima Atomic Bomb Wednesday, June
2, Block 1 (7:30 AM) This is our first International video conference
and we are excited to have a compelling speaker, Yoshiko Kajimoto, a
survivor of the atomic bomb. Her profile is attached as a pdf. The
conference is part of the [
http://www.pcf.city.hiroshima.jp/images_e/poster/us09.html ]

"Hiroshima-Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Photo Poster Exhibition" in partnership
with the [
http://www.pcf.city.hiroshima.jp/ ]Hiroshima Peace Memorial
Museum.

100+ students (mostly Social Studies classes) will attend. The speaker
will be with us for 30-40 minutes (Japan is 13 hours ahead.) Since Skype
is two way, we will have the ability for students to directly ask
questions.

To establish background knowledge and interest, the Media Center has had a
display relating to Hiroshima and the Atomic Bomb throughout the month of
May. The museum provided us with 40 detailed posters, graphically showing
the physical and human effects on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, as well as
detailed history of nuclear bombs. GHS selected 10 posters which have
been on display along with GHS materials.

This program is entirely the brainchild of Ian Tiedemann (GHS Social
Studies teacher) who connected with the Museum when he traveled to Japan
and Korea as part of the National Consortium For Teaching's About Asia
(NCTA) study tour. Ian applied for the program and has been the lead
contact for coordinating this event.

Victory Requires Your Help

Friends,

The election is now five months away, and with your help we will bring common-sense back to Washington, DC. However, we are fighting a well-financed incumbent and I need your financial support to defeat him.

Thanks to many receiving this e-mail, we have raised $600,000 to date. However, we will need to raise another $1.4 million in the next five months to be competitive with Jim Himes. The only way Himes wins this election is if he is able to obscure his record of voting 95% with Nancy Pelosi by outspending us with a large media campaign.

Would you consider making a donation to the campaign? If you have already donated, would you consider making a second donation?

Any amount-- $100, $250, $500 -- makes a huge difference in reaching our goals. You can donate online or by personal check:

Personal Check:

PO Box 189
Shelton, CT 06484

Believe me, I dislike asking folks for their hard-earned money. But your donations are the only way we are able to get our message of economic growth, small government, and individual liberty out to the voters in the next five months. Thank you in advance for even considering it.

All my best,
--Dan
