" It is impossible to become rich without enriching others. He who adds to prosperity must prosper in turn." Earl Nightengale http://www.earlnightingale.com

Dear Friends,

Hello All. Happy back to school week, Jewish Holidays, and end of summer as we celebrate it. I had one last summer hurrah last week by taking my step-grandson, Sadel, a curious 7-year-old, to Disneyland for two days. What joy; much easier than taking my own children oh so many years ago. Thanks Sadel for helping me end my summer in such a fun way. A these days grow shorter, the sun's angle deepens, and the garden is a profusion of flowers I find myself gently moving back inside my home, moving back into work mode just a little more seriously, and finding myself going back to school inside my brain. Here's a few tidbits for you.

Junior Film Critics Club Facilitator's Workshops: We have four in the New York area this month: Mamaroneck Playhouse, Mamaroneck, NY - Sept. 14; Soundview Cinemas, Port Washington, Long Island - Sept. 21; Warner Quad, Ridgewood, NJ - Sept. 21; and Fipps Hall, Girl Scout Council of Greater New York, 438 W. 23rd St., New York City.

All workshops run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and there is a fee of $35 except for the Girl Scout Workshop which is $15.

For our Santa Fe readers, remember that we're continuing our pre-festival screenings at the Cinemacafe , featuring 13 weeks of pre-school screenings at their St. Michael's Road location on Wednesdays and Saturdays at lunchtime. For a schedule http://www.kidsfirstinternet.org/kidsfirst/html/santafe.htm

One of the joys of my life is becoming friends with the most interesting and heartwarming people. I have had the good fortune to become friends with Earl Nightingale's widow and step-daughter, Jill, as a result of our website. Jill is a wonderful artist whose work will be on exhibit in NYC on September 11 for a 911 Memorial Exhibition at the Globe Institute of Technology, just 4 blocks from the World Trade Center and her work is at http://www.outsiderart.info/spill.htm
From Jill's mother, Diana's Official Earl Nightingale web site, http://www.earlnightingale.com, is the following story I thought you would enjoy.

From Earl's Desk - THE TRUTH IS HOPE

I recently spent one of the most miserable hours of my life watching an hour-long dramatic program on television. It began with two young nonentities mugging, robbing and beating an old man in a dirty alley and then, for a solid hour, it steadily got worse. It was sordid, dismal, painful trivia. And when it finally came to a bleak close, I sat emptied and saddened.

It was a prime time evening program, undoubtedly watched by many millions of people who must have been as deeply depressed by it as I was. I fell to wondering why I had sat, masochistically wasting an entire hour of my life in such a fashion.

For all I know the program may win critical acclaim. That's the kind of thing that seems to. Writers and producers for both television and motion pictures often seem to have as their chief interest in life to hold up and display the dirty linen of the world; "See how dirty, how sad, how cruel, and how meaningless life really is."

We all know things such as depicted by these media exist in the world for more years than I care to remember, but to dwell upon them, to wallow in them is as absurd as it is to show life in pure, unrelieved happiness and good cheer.

But it seems that people love to sit and watch sadness and pain. They must, or this type of program wouldn't be successful. Maybe this is our modern Roman circus where we, perched in the safety of our vantage points, can peel away the thin veneer of civilization, and watch other human beings being humiliated, beaten and killed before our eyes.

I wish that every writer for television, and motion pictures would read and reread this great Emerson quotation: "Don't hang a dismal picture on the wall, and do not daub with sables and glooms in your conversations. Don't be a cynic and disconsolate preacher. Don't bewail and bemoan. Omit the negative propositions. Nerve us with incessant affirmatives. Don't waste yourself in rejection, nor bark against the bad, but chant the beauty of the good. When that is spoken which has a right to be spoken, the chatter and the criticism will stop. Set down nothing that will not help somebody."

You know, the truth, when it is fully known, is full of hope. In the great book, The Grapes of Wrath, John Steinbeck wrote of the poor, the uneducated and the dispossessed. He showed what life was really like for those in the bottom of our social pile, and he showed it clearly. But by showing it clearly, he also showed the warmth, the love, the stubborn good cheer and humor of people with little else to fall back upon. When you finished the book, you were a better person for having read it. You were not filled with bleak, helpless despair as I was after watching that totally depressing hour on television. You saw the picture, you recognized a human need and you had hope for the indomitable spirit of man.

I don't mean this as an indictment of television - far from it. There are some fine things being done. But I don't think something has to be sad, sick, and somber to be good.

Everything we know about human life leads us to believe that man conquers his problems and rises above them. He has prevailed in the past and he will continue to prevail in the future.

Earl's Gem - "Everything we know about human life leads us to believe that man conquers his problems and rises above them. He has prevailed in the past and he will continue to prevail in the future"

Thank you Diana for the permission to publish your story. Your continuation of Earl's words are needed in today's world.

Great soundtrack and lots of diversity. Short, segmented pace is sometimes hard to follow. "Enjoyable both as background music and as interactive viewing." Kid Juror Comments: Responded with excitement to the introduction of instruments and animals. Some danced, clapped, stomped, pointed and laughed.

** STRANGER IN THE WOODS Two snowdrifts introduce their forest friends and tell the story of how animals reacted to a snowman who appeared after a winter storm. Live video blends with still photography from the children's book of the same title, and original music. Adult Juror Comments: Exceptional footage of nature in its natural state. Peaceful tone and upbeat, humorous style. Breathtaking scenery, crisp close-ins of wildlife that seem to know their lines. Reveals nature in a way that very few children get to experience. Kid Juror Comments: Engrossed and amused them. "The real-life animals with the music and the funny parts where the animals are making noises were really good."

** THE LORD'S PRAYER (ANIMATED STORIES FROM THE NEW TESTAMENT). After Jesus' resurrection and ascension into heaven, His disciples find their faith greatly tested when Peter is arrested and cast into a Roman prison. Believers gather together to follow the example that Jesus taught. Adult Juror Comments: Pleasant and appropriate. Rich colors, pleasing drawings, realistic settings and good action. Makes the concept of faith clear to young viewers. A very good tool to show children how to pray. Christian content good for Sunday schools. Kid Juror Comments: Enjoyed watching and were very receptive to the message of prayer. "It was cool." "I like praying movies." ""We learned how the Romans treated people." "It showed how people looked and acted at the time." "They needed to remember that God is in control." Video. 30 min.; $24.95; Age: 5-10. NESTFAMILY.


** TERRAFORMING MARS (CAPTAIN COSMOS COSMIC THEATER). In this pilot for a proposed series, Captain Cosmos and the crew of starship Bedevere take young Josh on a trip to Mars, which has been transformed into a livable world. Adult Juror Comments: Interesting. Creative treatment of a unique space topic. Style, pace and special effects suitable for younger viewers. Terraforming concept is novel and sophisticated; might need explaining. Sound quality uneven. Good introduction to the series. Kid Juror Comments: Found the topic interesting, but were unsure whether it was informational or fictional. "Are they saying that Mars will be terraformed one day, or is this just make-believe?" "It helps us picture what Mars looks like." All were frustrated by short length. Video. 8 min.; Age: 7-10. NI-COLA PRODUCTIONS.

** GO FOR IT!: CHEERLEADERS VS COMPUTER WIZARDS. Actual kids from different schools compete athletically and educationally, and two hip-hop bands perform. The round-robin tournament progresses through thirteen episodes. Adult Juror Comments: Fast and hip. Kids' game show is sandwiched between hip-hop acts by mature performers. Motivational messages and good sportsmanship throughout. Lots of diversity; kids are regular kids. Adults felt the music performers dressed and danced too suggestively. Kid Juror Comments: Connected with it. "We wish we could go on the show." "I liked the flashing lights, the action and the motion-effect with the camera." "It was cool." "We didn't like the musical groups." "The music was today's music." "Fantastic color." Video. Age: 8-12. MANDALAY SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT.

** O. HENRY'S THE GIFT OF THE MAGI. O. Henry's timeless story of unselfish love is told to the granddaughter of the now-grown protagonist Della, blending new narration with the actual words from the short story. It's a tale about a young couple who have too little money for Christmas. Adult Juror Comments: Well crafted literary piece. Good lighting, sets and period music. Respectful of young viewers, high level vocabulary. Flash-back scenes were confusing to those unfamiliar with the story. Shows respect and sacrifice. Appeals to literature students most. Kid Juror Comments: Appreciated the surprise ending and other literary elements. Best received in the classroom context. "Believable representation of the times." "I liked the twist at the end." Video. 20 min.; $24.95; Age: 14-18. MONTEREY HOME VIDEO.

There have been great developments in the global efforts to advance the rights and interests of children. The Say Yes for Children campaign has proved to be a stunning success, bringing unprecedented and powerful demonstration of public concern for children to the very successful United Nations Special Session on Children held last month in New York. In a campaign officially deemed the largest of its kind, Say Yes has collected over 94 million pledges of support from people across the world since its launch in April 2001. As a key component of the pledging process, each individual was asked to rank the most pressing issue facing children in their country from among the 10 rallying points. To date, the global results show the ranking of importance as follows:

• Educate Every Child: 14.8%
• Leave No Child Out: 11.7%
• Fight Poverty: Invest in Children: 10.4%
• Care for Every child: 10.1%
• Stop Harming and Exploiting Children: 10.0%
• Fight HIV/AIDS: 9.8%
• Listen to Children: 9.1%
• Put Children First: 8.2%
• Protect the Earth for Children: 8.0%
• Protect Children from War: 7.8%
