Missing Child

May 24, 2007

Thanks to efforts like your own, she has been found by the SCPD.
On behalf of the family, thanks for your effort.

James Banks
Dear Colleagues

A student of mine who is also a single parent is in much alarm about her
daughter who is missing since last Tuesday. I am forwarding her picture
to ask if anyone sees her, or has seen her please let me know or contact
911. This young lady had a very unhappy experience in her school and was
terrible affected by it. She just made 15 years old yesterday and was
last reported to be calling a friend from Amityville. She therefore,
is suspected to be in the Amityville area.

May 5 (Saturday): Facing War - North Fork People of Conscience documentary at Cutchogue 7pm

North Fork People of Conscience is excited to announce the first public screening of FACING WAR, a 40-minute documentary we have produced in partnership with Conscience Films of Port Jefferson. The film presents students at Brooklyn Friends School and their reaction to the Honor The Fallen memorial shown at their school recently.

We will also be showing a short film by Emily Greenberg of Mattituck High School to be followed by a discussion about both films with a group of high school students.

Both films will be shown at the Cutchogue Presbyterian Church
Main Road, Cutchogue on Saturday, May 5, 2007 7.00 pm

We have been exhibiting the Honor the Fallen memorial-- the nearly 200 panels containing the faces and obituaries of the American soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan--for two years now and in 15 major venues.

However, until now we have never really understood what effect the panels have on those who come to view them. In February this year we installed the memorial in Brooklyn Friends School for three days and then went back to interview the high school students and teachers who had been living with them for those days.
What they told us and what we learned is captured in the documentary and we invite you to come and see it with us.
