I was lucky enough get to go on a trip to Thailand through the state department, and once you return, they make you complete a service project. The broad purpose of this trip was to educate American students about Thai culture, and create international relationships. Which was done through studying climate change and sustainable agriculture.
So, mine is a Thai dinner/sharing information (now), which is happening tonight from 6-8 pm in the cafeteria!

“Bangkok, Thailand’s capital city and home to over 10 million people, has been sinking 10 centimeters annually. The land subsidence, coupled with rising sea levels due to climate change, puts the city at risk of disappearing into the sea within 15 or 20 years.”
-Smith Dharmasaroja, chair of the Thai government’s Committee of National Disaster Warning
75% of Thailand’s population is rural
Thailand is a Monarchy - everyone stands by the King, he was the one thing that united everyone. Unfortunately, he passed away on Oct. 13th, 2016.
95% of the population of Thailand in Buddhist, and 4 percent of people are Muslim.

THE HAUNTED HALLWAY
Written by Anonymous
(Please scroll down).
Terry and Joe were walking towards the older wing of their high school when Terry remarked, “I think our art teacher is a strange gypsy fortune teller.”
“Why do you think that?”, said Joe.
“Did you ever notice how she sort of mutters to herself while she peers into that sink in her art room and if there’s nothing in it she tells you to have a good day, but if there are dirty brushes in there she predicts you’re going to be late for your next class?”
Joe snorted a laugh. “Ha! A real clairvoyant! Brrr, it is suddenly so cold over here and it sort of smells like my basement.”
“That’s nothing!”, Terry continued as the students walked along. “The science teacher put his hairy hand on my lunch tray and actually sniffed my salad!”
“What?” said Joe, “That’s sort of weird…”
“Yep. I looked at his hand and have you ever noticed it looks like a wolf paw? I tell ya! When he stopped sniffing my lunch he started to scratch at his shirt collar as if his tie was too tight. I swear his nostrils were flaring and he was sort of growling, too!”
Somewhere nearby a locker door slammed shut and the two students looked up, startled.
“Oh! Sorry about that, you two! I suppose that was way too loud!” said the librarian standing in front of the metal locker door. She appeared to be holding it shut behind her back. She stared at them expectantly. The teenagers stared back as an uncomfortable silence passed. They could all hear the eerie electric crackling of a faltering fluorescent light as it flickered on and off on the ceiling just above them. The strangely-colored light made the librarian’s purple lipstick appear almost black. She continued to peer back at them and the two felt momentarily paralyzed.
Joe cleared his throat, “Ahem.” He looked at Terry, who lifted an eyebrow back at him, nodding towards the dim hallway. “Well, my mom said a marmot broke into our truck, again, so, I, TOTALLY better go help her…”
“Oh, uh, yeah,” said Terry, “And I forgot I was supposed to get, like, ten of my molars investigated”.
“Don’t forget, you two! I want your blood!” called the librarian.
Joe and Terry looked back in alarm.
“For the blood drive?” She grinned and nodded avidly at their arms holding school books. They noticed for the first time she was entirely clothed in heliotrope.
The teenagers quickly waved goodbye and rushed off down the hall at a rapid pace, eyeing each other warily.
