    Miracles Happen... This project was born of the magical curiosity of Bernajean Porter, (Bernajena Pinazzo) who spent four impromptu and intensive days at Suffern Middle School this spring. Our teachers dropped everything to participate in her workshops, and Kevin Jarrett and Marianne Malstrom (KJ Hax and Knowclue Kid) spent their Spring Break at our school, tirelessly working alongside our teachers and students. Four days, 50 minute classes, 75 students, and a lot of faith resulted in some amazing student work, and many important lessons learned for us, their guides along the way. The teachers, Jenn Fruhling, Liza Medina, and Julie Bujtas never gave up as the end of year testing and yet to be covered curriculum swallowed any time to devote to the project. Still they pushed onward, and the kids spent lunch hours, after school and home time getting their stories just right, and their voices recorded, and the photographs taken, and the movies filmed and edited! They are amazing young people! My promise to them was that their work would be shown to the world. Until Friday, June 20th, it appeared that I would not be able to keep that promise without a miracle. Last minute desperation inspired me to turn to the Second Life Educational Community. Friday, June 20th at 9’oclock EST, I sent out a note to to the Second Life Educational Community. By 9:36, I had my team, the land, and the build had begun. You can’t make this stuff up-- Desideria Stockton (Beth Ritter-Guth in RL) and Eloise Pasteur took over, and to quote Desideria “Tell those kids we’ve got their back!” They brought on another educator, Daliah Carter (Suzanne Kern in RL) and I called for Kayla Khan, who was one of the very first Ramapo Volunteers two years ago when the original islands were built. By Sunday afternoon, the build was 90% completed, including the kids’ movies streamed, their audio clips playing and their vision brought to life! Don’t EVER tell me that virtual relationships are lesser ones. Don’t EVER tell me that Second Life is insignificant or a passing phase, and don’t EVER tell me, that miracles can’t happen. My students, and those that will follow in their way, are richer for their experiences in Second Life, and I am richer for the friends i have made, the times I have spent with them, and the lessons learned here in the Metaverse. We thank you for stepping up in a time of great need, we thank you for your talent, we thank you for your selfless energy, but most of all, we thank you for caring about our students, and helping their voices find a home. - With never ending gratitude, Maggie Marat (Peggy Sheehy in RL)
