If you got them, then light them up

This has been a Spark-tacular week for the Assets program.

Even though the infamous “It’s May,” mantra has reared its ugly head, there’s a lot of work getting done.

“It’s May,” is really the only descriptor needed amongst friends for that four-week period of craziness where you seem to be flying at mock speed, but aren’t really sure what you’re getting done.

It is a time when on certain days of this month you wonder if anybody keeps house, who does the dishes or when that pile of filing will really get done.

We were lucky enough to have Dr. Peter Benson of the Search Institute in Los Alamos for some “one on one time with community members.”

He spoke on the topic of sparks and how if you can find that thing, hobby, activity, etc., that ignites the flame that gives youth a purpose, life can be pretty great.

We’re not talking about something that makes a youth become self centered, but actually does the opposite in creating a more caring attitude toward studies, others, the world. You name it, if it is a good thing, it gets even better.

I was thrilled to hear of several activities that took place within 24 hours of the event.

Local parents and school personnel didn’t just listen to the ideas, but ran with them.
