“Knowledge is Power.” – Doc Meek

WilliamElleryChanning.jpg

A single hour a day, steadily given to the

study of some interesting subject, brings

unexpected accumulations of knowledge.

William Ellery Channing – 1780-1842, Preacher

Knowledge is Power

I’m a lifelong learner and Irish storyteller that is fond of saying, “Knowledge is Power.”

“Not if you don’t apply it,” says his practical businesswoman wife, Jeannette Meek.

“I am grateful for the USA.” – Doc Meek

……………………………………………………………………………
INDEPENDENCE DAY IN THE USA, JULY 4, 2013

To All Our Friends and Family Far & Near,

Both of us (Doc & Jeannette Meek) are dual Citizens of Canada and the United States of America.
We are citizens of Canada by birth and citizens of the USA by naturalization.

We celebrated Canada on Canada Day, Monday, July 1, 2013.

Today, Thurs, July 4, 2013, we are celebrating our second home in the USA.

We are proud to be dual citizens, and love both Canada and the USA, and the

citizens of Canada and the USA.

Loving Kindness, Collins (Doc) and Jeannette Meek

Today we are grateful for the United States of America, both its current citizens and those who went before us to make today possible.  – Doc & Jeannette Meek, Thursday, July 4, 2013, Calgary, Alberta, CANADA, and South Jordan, Utah, USA.

P.S. We have had a request for the national anthem of the United States of America, “The Star-Spangled Banner”:

THE STAR-SPANGLED BANNER

O say can you see by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

“I am grateful for Canada.” – Doc Meek

To All Our Friends and Family Far & Near,

We are both dual Citizens of Canada and the US.

We celebrate Canada on Canada Day, Monday, July 1, 2013.
We are grateful to be Canadians by birth and to know and love Canada and Canadians.
In a few days, July 4, we will also celebrate our second home in the US.

Loving Kindness, Collins (Doc) and Jeannette Meek

Today we are grateful for Canada, its current citizens and those who went before us to make today possible.  – Doc & Jeannette Meek, Monday, July 1, 2013, Calgary, Alberta, CANADA, and South Jordan, Utah, USA. 

P.S. We have had a request for Canada’s National Anthem. Here it is in English and French (since Canada is a bilingual country):

O CANADA

O Canada! Our home and native land!

O Canada! Terre de nos aïeux,

True patriot love in all thy sons command.

Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux!

With glowing hearts we see thee rise,

Car ton bras sait porter l’épée,

The True North strong and free!

Il sait porter la croix!

From far and wide, O Canada,

Ton histoire est une épopée

we stand on guard for thee.

Des plus brillants exploits.

God keep our land glorious and free!

Et ta valeur, de foi trempée,

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

“In the darkness before the dawn and in the going down into the night, we will remember them.” – Anonymous

Sunday, November 11, 2012. REMEMBRANCE DAY. Today we are grateful we are remembering what others did, that we may enjoy the freedoms we do.  – Doc & Jeannette Meek

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders Fields.

(Harmonization)

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep,

Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie,

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
in Flanders Fields

in Flanders…
in Flanders Fields
in Flanders Fields
in Flanders Fields
in Flanders Fields

………………………

Thank you to all of you,  the men and women who had the audacity to sign up for the unthinkable!

Doc & Jeannette Meek, Sun, Nov 11, 2012, CANADA & USA

P.S. Louise Meek, Doc’s mother, memorized IN FLANDERS FIELDS when she was in Grade 6. Today, in her 95th year, she recited it from memory,  with feeling. Nothing the matter with her long-term memory, even though she has some issues with short-term memory. So… remember to memorize good things while you are young!

“I was in Tonga as a Learning Specialist.” – Doc Meek

Tuesday, September 13, 2011. Today I am so happy and grateful for my good connections with Tongans and the Kingdom of Tonga in the South Pacific Islands. ~ Doc Meek, Neurological Learning Specialist

Beautiful Tongan sunset

Tonga Sunset

Lucky me! I got to see the Tongan culture and lifestyle first-hand, and for more than two years, thank heaven!

I was appointed as an Adjunct Professor of Education out of BYU-H (Brigham Young University-Hawaii) in 1999,  and sent to the Kingdom of Tonga with my beloved wife Jeannette. Both of us were appointed to participate in the ITEP (International Teacher Education Program) sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The teachers and students and the administrators all worked together to raise the student achievement dramatically.

Way to go Tonga educators!

They helped the students get higher marks and they also helped them change attitudes, behaviors, and cooperation with other students and teachers.

The results? Happier students and healthier students (and wealthier students, wealthy of mind). 😮

They took the meaning of active learning beyond expectations.

And they took my “heads-hearts-hands-hope” inclusivity to a new high.

The Tongans taught me more than I taught them.

Tongans are generous of heart and mind, non-judgmental, and they loved and respected me.

And Tongans loved and respected my wife Jeannette even more.

Naturally! She’s better looking than I am! 🙂

And we loved and respected Tongans.

Forever.

Jeannette was a real hit with the students and their parents. She directed a 150-voice Tongan choir, mostly youth, and learned to appreciate the saying, “When Tongans sing, the angels sing with them.”

Tongans can sing 7-part harmony a capella, with ease and grace.

And they can dance too! Sometimes wildly. 😮 Wow!

Jeannette also taught an English class for young adults who had all failed to pass their “big English Test” in high school. Thus their gateway to higher education was closed to them (at least in their minds, and in the minds of their parents).

Permanent “doom.”  No hope.

Until Jeannette showed up and pointed out (dramatically):

“I don’t care how others have graded you. I am going to grade you up!”

She added (as some of the students thought this palangi [Caucasian] teacher might give them all an easy “pass”):

“We are going to study and write that exam again; then we are going to study and write that exam again; and then we are going to study and write that exam again!”

The students were stunned.

The thought of writing that dreaded exam again and again was not part of the cultural norm at that time.

If you flunked, you flunked. That was it. You were an “educational failure for life.”

Jeannette faithfully taught a class of 32 students (who came from far and wide when they heard about her famous English class).

Twenty-eight (28) went on to higher education. And the rest carried their newly-found self-confidence into other great opportunities.

We are forever grateful to the first student in Jeannette’s class: Uini, whose dear father asked Jeannette if she would help his daughter with English.

Thank you Tongans for the greatest two years in any land!

A special salute to the parents and teachers and students and administrators in all the Tongan Islands.

And a dozen “high fives” for Mele Taumoepeau, who was Principal of Liahona High School on Tongatapu during my time in the Kingdom of Tonga.

Mele made the hard work sing! Thank you, Mele!

Kindness, Doc

I am glad I have known “Mr. Integrity.” ~ Doc Meek

Tuesday, September 6, 2011. Today I am so happy and grateful that I have known, not one, but two men, who were known far and wide as “Mr. Integrity.” They never announced this to the world. They simply lived it. ~ Doc Meek

Here is a letter I emailed to Tom today:

Dear Tom,

I have been overwhelmed with gratitude today for two things:

(1) That my wife Jeannette knew intuitively to choose you to work with, as her broker in her real estate work, you, who became ultimately and always, “Mr. Integrity,” in our eyes.

Not to mention your intelligence, seasoned wisdom, professional knowledge and competence. First rate, all the way.

(2) That I was wise enough to follow Jeannette’s lead in this, when I worked as her assistant, even though my own “logical” intelligence might have chosen a different broker, up front, before I met you.

We are both everlastingly (literally) grateful for your life and for your example, both personally and professionally.

What can I say more?

Warmest personal and professional regards,

Doc and Jeannette Meek

……………………………………

Who was the second “Mr. Integrity” that I knew before I met Tom Pearce?

My Dad, whose name I have been blessed with all my life, James Collins Meek II.

In reality, I have known many men and women of integrity in both my personal and professional life. I am simply thinking of these two men, pillars of light, today.

Today is the anniversary of my Dad’s death, September 6, 2001, and perhaps thatis what has sparked my overwhelming feelings of gratitude for the good men and women I have been blessed to know throughout my life, among which, of course, is my dearly beloved, my wife, Jeannette Meek, of heart health fame:

Thank you, Tom Pearce and James Collins Meek II, for showing us THE WAY, no matter what.
