From the Perspective of a 20 Year Old.

My name is Madeleine Weick and I have just completed a 10 week internship with A Woman’s Place (AWP) through Foundation’s Community Partnerships’ Summer Youth Corps program.

Finding Father’s Day

Granddad died when I was quite young. When I was 20-something, my dad once remarked how much he missed talking with him. He wished he could still seek granddad’s advice, benefit from his experience.

Fairytales

I’ve always been fascinated with folklore. I couldn’t settle for Disney; I wanted to see different versions of every fairytale. In my teens, my brother complained about me reading the Brothers Grimm despite the gore between the pages. In college, I studied Russian Fairytales and learned that every folktale had a hidden meaning for children…

Everything’s Different Now

I’ll never forget the phone call that Friday morning from my son. Now a freshman at the University of Maine, Josh was 16 at the time, still a junior in high school. “Dad, a girl was stabbed at school this morning.” Josh was calling me from home. Students had been dismissed from school early because…

Be Mine

It snows often in Happy Valley.  Rarely enough to amount to anything, but just enough to look pretty (and, sometimes, be annoying).  My sophomore year at Penn State, however, St. Valentine gave us work-weary students a blessed gift: the one and only snow day I can remember during my four years of undergrad.  Yes, classes…
