World AIDS day Vigil & Mass

St. Johns hosted a World AIDS Day Vigil and Mass at the St. Thomas Moore church at the Jamaica Queens Campus in order to remember and hold a moment of silence for those suffering with AIDS and those countless others that have perished due to virus.

The main theme of the message was "To Take the Lead" in the fight aganist AIDS, just as Jesus expects us to do what is right, we must become a active member of the fight, instead of being a passive observer.

The AIDS day vigil was sponsored by St. Johns Campus Ministry and other organizations and it was attended by various student leaders from organizations ranging from the Guyanese Student Association to STAND.

The Service was a reflection on those that we wish were here with us today and those who's faces we see as we look at that ribbon. The speaker said "we live in a word which does not want to see and sometimes we must confess we do not want to see either. So in silence, one by one, you may turn your back onto the ribbon." Representing those who have turned away from the challenge that we must all strive to wards.

With prayers, religious sermons, and readings from the Word of God, the Vigil and the accompanying mass was truly a blessing for the student body at St. Johns University, that attended to remember those who has long left us due to this disease and those who are suffering from around the world from its effects.

US Government: Differences and Information

The first difference is the president of the US is always an outsider to the “mess in Washington” and has to win votes of the public to become the president; while the prime minister is always inside the channels of government, because he is selected by the legislature that is either in majority from his party or his own coalition.
