"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."

We read about a children's camp that teaches them how to manage money:

Vocabulary Top 10:

weigh in - to give your opinion about something

stage whisper - a loud whisper that is intended to be heard by everyone; a loud whisper by an actor that can be heard by the audience but which the other actors on the stage pretend not to hear

nuts and bolts - the basic parts or details of an activity, job, etc.

Would you have gone to this camp when you were a child, or would you send your children here?
Do you think we need to teach children more about how to manage money?

    I would send my daughters to this camp to learn how to manage their finances and also touching on both philanthropy and social responsibilities. Much more important than to gain money and administrate your finances is to concern and to help each other, mainly those with fewer resources and opportunities. I consider education is the better legacy that we can give to the children and together this we can to plant the seed of compassion and mutual help because are the good actions that make us up a better human and the material things will stay here on this World.
