THE A MB ITIO N O F YOUTH In this well-known story from 1st Samuel, David, the future king of Israel, is considered too young and small to fight in the King’s army. His brothers ridicule him as an attention getter who only wants to watch the battles as he boasts about the desire to defend God’s name. David is the youngest of eight brothers, and he is considered by his older brothers to be too immature to do anything but watch over sheep. He is called conceited by his oldest brother and not worthy to fight on behalf of the King.

MEMPHIS

I recently lost a good friend, David Rainey; his death was unexpected and much too early. David and I graduated high school together, then went to The University of Memphis and pledged SAE together. In our senior year of college, he was the President of the fraternity while I was the Treasurer. We were young, full of ambition and felt like there was nothing we couldn’t accomplish. David went on to marry and build a business that employed hundreds of people. He did not take it lightly that hundreds of families depended on him to pay their mortgages, feed their families while educating their children. David was known to be loyal and honest to all those he dealt with; the ambition of youth

gave way to success as a husband and employer that built his business on integrity. Young people are often known for their passion and idealistic zeal. A young David Rainey entered the adult world full of ambition with much to prove and overcome before he would make his mark. Even after he slayed Goliath, King David from 1st Samuel also would have much to prove and overcome before he would rule the Kingdom of Israel as God had promised him. The exuberance of youth is a special gift, and so this month in 4Memphis we introduce the Youth Impact Writing Series presented monthly by Gould’s Salon and Spa. The Youth Impact Writing Series will be written for us by students from Mid-South area high schools; these students will write about the volunteer and service work of their fellow students. This series will give students the opportunity to be published and bring 4Memphis readers their inspiring youthful passion and zeal to change our world in a positive way. I anticipate we will read about young people working on behalf of some of the Mid-South’s well-known charities, as well as being introduced to the tremendous work of the numerous not-for-profit charities; ministries and programs that often work to improve our community without notoriety. The ambition and zeal of a young shepherd boy for the service of the Lord gave Israel a King. The ambition and honesty of a young David Rainey allowed him to build a company that would provide jobs for hundreds. We pray that the writings of the Youth Impact Writing Series will inspire us all through these young students in our community who are changing the face of Memphis through their service to others.

I Have a Voice by Emma Mansberg

I yi

youthimpact WRITING SERIES

have a voice, and I want it to be heard. Every human has a voice that should be heard. This ideal motivates me especially when I look into the depths of our city and want to shout for those who cannot, for those who feel silenced. As a student at St. Mary’s Episcopal School, my classmates and I are embraced by our school’s motto of “Light and Life.” It serves as a commandment of sorts for us all, a responsibility to do more, love more, and serve more with no expectation for self and every expectation that we make sure to bring more light into this world. Every day in Chapel, my classmates and I are joined in one voice, in one celebration, of a community that works together to support one another and the city that hosts us.  Giving back to this city and to this world  is the story I choose. I have been blessed to live in a community that has encouraged me to find and use my voice by stepping out of the comfortable walls of St. Mary’s Episcopal School so that I might convert my words into action.  This lesson emerges from our school’s culture - service is the skin we wear, a choice not a requirement, and the majority of our students and teachers choose to serve. Within my fourteen years at St. Mary’s, I have seen this culture of giving, and it has become deeply ingrained into my being. Now, when I see injustice, I choose to use my voice, I choose to shout, I choose to act. St. Mary’s awakened within me a passion for social justice and a deep curiosity about public policy and its effects on children. This pursuit has taken root by shaping my mindset around the topic by considering justice from many angles - justice as it applies to education, justice as it applies to healthcare accessibility, and most passionately justice as it applies to race, religion, and cultures. I use my voice as a Facing History and Ourselves student leader, working to educate classmates citywide about the prejudice in our world and how to combat it. Involvement in this organization allows me to not only use my voice but also to engage with others and motivate them to use their voices to stand up against these prejudices that we see in our city and world. With this perspective, I feel a special connection to inequitable treatment of people with disabilities and has spurred me to take action. Every summer, I work with Camp Dream Street, an overnight camp for children with special needs. My goal as a counselor is to insure that the camper I work with does not feel defined by her disability

26 / 4Memphis

that rather than being a disabled person, she is a person with a disability. By encouraging and helping her to participate in activities like swimming, cheerleading, and sports, I work to help her find that she is far more able than the labels that society puts on her. I believe that this is what service is truly about. Service is more than just putting in a little bit of time playing with a child. Service is sitting next to a child empowering her to read by holding steady teaching fry words, over and over and over again; every child deserves the right to read. Service is working with St. Jude. Service is working with the Memphis Teacher Residency to support them in grant writing.  Service is empowering people to use their own voices. Service is more than a short term project. Service is a lifelong goal to return humanity to those who have been stripped of it. Service is using your voice to enable others to do so as well. Service is what St. Mary’s teaches me every day. Service is Memphis. Service is me. Service is everything.

Season the fish with salt and pepper to taste. Lightly rub the matcha powder over both fillets and set aside. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium high heat; add in carrots and shallot, stirring constantly and cooking for 1-2 minutes while they begin to caramelize. Add in the kale and continue to stir, allowing the kale soften slightly, 1-2 minutes more. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant.

Spread the vegetables out to the sides of the pan, creating a large circle in the center. Place the fish in the pan, skin side up, and cook for 1 minute. Carefully pour the water/broth around the fish and immediately cover with a tight-fitting lid. Reduce heat to medium low and steam for 4-7 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish, until is it opaque and firm to the touch. While the fish steams, whisk together the dressing: in a medium bowl combine the orange juice and zest, ginger, rice vinegar, soy sauce, lemongrass and brown sugar. Remove the lid from the pan and drizzle a spoonful of the dressing over the vegetables. Place a mound of greens on the center of the plate and top with a piece of fish. Drizzle with more of the dressing and sesame seeds.

Trophies Through the Lens The Conservationist Way to Shoot in Africa with Jack Kenner By Stephanie Beliles | Photography by Jack Kenner

L

ast summer, the world reacted to the tragic news that an American dentist killed a beloved African lion, for sport. The imagery of a person standing next to a lifeless creature is gruesome, but how do you let adventure-seeking people who enjoy the hunt collect on their pursuit and capture the memory without contributing to an ecological disaster? You shoot the animal: with a Nikon or Cannon. And Jack Kenner is the best man to guide you on that quest. Photographer Jack Kenner went to Memphis State University and studied journalism and film, because MSU did not have photography as a major. He later graduated from the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA, and eventually found himself back in Memphis.

After working off his student debt, Jack followed his passion for photographing animals and took off to Africa. Trekking across Kenya and Tanzania with a British guide and two Masai (a driver and a cook), Jack embarked on the ultimate African experience. He slept on the ground in tents, and he shot 300 rolls of film. He was hooked, but not only because of the adventure, but because of the call to action in stopping the loss of some of the world’s most magnificent creatures. This process spawned “Trophies through the Lens,” a wildlife photography tutorial by Jack himself, followed by the practical field work via a photography safari in Africa. The program was designed by Jack to not only to fine-tune photography skills, but to raise awareness of the tragedies occurring in African bush.

April 2016 / 71


“In the last few years I’ve watched what is happening through poaching, and greed, to the great creatures in Africa, particularly the rhino and elephant. But it’s happening all over our planet…and it horrifies me,” notes Jack. He believes that our youth are the solution, and that teaching them the importance of conservation and human responsibility to our planet is the first step in protecting endangered species. Not only is it important to conserve wildlife for ecological and moral reasons, but it is increasingly suspected that illegal wildlife trafficking has serious implications for the security and prosperity of people around the world. Illegal wildlife poaching and trafficking is one of the world’s top criminal activities, ranked alongside drugs, arms and human trafficking. Three years ago, the Elephant Action League conducted an 18-month undercover investigation into the link between Al-Shabaab and the illegal trafficking of ivory through Kenya. The published findings suggest that Al-Shabaab has been actively buying and selling ivory to fund its militant operations, and that ivory trafficking “could be supplying up to 40% of the funds needed to keep them in business.’’ Aside from the link to national security, poaching wrecks an established natural ecosystem. Eliminating an animal from the planet greatly affects our environment: a species becoming extinct upsets the food chain, changes topography, and starts a negative domino effect on our environment. Elephants, tigers, rhinoceros and Asian bears face the biggest survival challenges due to poaching. These animals have body parts that are considered highly valuable. An example closer to home is when the North American Gray Wolf was on the brink of extinction, due to trophy hunting and poaching, and the elk populations in Yellowstone National Park soared. With no natural predator, the elk nearly ate the aspen tree to extinction. However, the world’s ecosystems are reliant on each other. What happens to a species in Africa is consequential to everyone everywhere. Since 1990, Jack has been lecturing at the Memphis Zoo and the Naples Zoo about the importance of preserving our planet’s ecosystems and wild creatures. He has traveled the world on assignments for the last 40 years, working for various governments and industries, to photograph wildlife.  He has firsthand witnessed the threats humans have placed on natural habitats, as well as seen it grow increasingly worse over time. Jack created “Trophies 72 / 4Memphis

through the Lens” as a way to raise awareness, as well as a creative process for people to enjoy. Jack takes his pupils to the zoo and teaches them how to photograph animals. He believes people can learn to better communicate through good photography, saying, “And I’m talking about real photography, not just a snap shot with your smartphone, but actually using all parts of a camera and solid composition and light to create meaningful images that convey important messages to others. Our way of communicating with one another is now more reliant on visual than ever and a picture has no language barriers.” So Jack mentors folks on how to conduct the ultimate “show-and-tell” that involves imagination and meaning, rather than showcasing mounted dead animals. “Trophies through the Lens” as a concept is a way to make conservation actionable. Through it, Jack has created opportunities for experiential learning: for children and adults to develop photography skills to capture wildlife through their lens, then take them to a place where they can practice and learn how to perfect their skills in the field. “As I learned by being there, when they see it in real life, they get it…they get why it is so important for all of us to fight to preserve our planet and protect its creatures, especially endangered species.” Then, when the student gets back to Memphis, Jack showcases the work in an exhibition, just like a professional photographer. The totality of the experience makes it indelible. “My approach to experiential learning is certainly a model that works. The children and adults that participate learn new ways to apply math, artistic design; they expand their creativity, and presentation skills, all while they are also learning natural science, history, biology, etc.,” notes Jack. He has partnered with an African expedition specialist, and they have worked together to find the best locations in Africa, as well as the top guides from bush camps specializing in programs for teachers, parents and children. Every trip is customized and coordinated to fit the objectives of the group, but all have a focus on photography, species preservation and artistic development and presentation. And Jack would love to do more trips, and to see his passion for animals and preservation grow through others. You can email him at jkenner@earthlink.net to find out how you can shoot an animal through the lens.

They can be small, thin, purple-colored lines (called “spider veins”) lying just below the surface, or they can appear as thick, bulging or knotted veins. While many people think that varicose veins are simply a cosmetic issue, there is often an underlying medical problem that causes varicose veins. This medical condition is called venous insufficiency. Varicose veins are very common in the United States, affecting approximately 15 percent of men and 25 percent of women.

Instead of demanding you get your way or passive-aggressively asserting your way, try talking through your desires related to money and verbalize your commitment to handle money in a way that best serves the good of the marriage and not just yourself. When in a gridlock: punt to an expert, such as a financial advisor.

“INTO THE WOODS” AT THEATRE MEMPHIS

The Lakeland Chamber of Commerce hosted a Wine and Cheese Fundraiser recently for the Lakeland Education Foundation at the ultimate Lego store, Bricks and Minifigs. The Delta Blues Winery paired five different wines with various cheeses, and guests sifted through tiny Lego body parts to build the perfect look-a-like Lego version of themselves to take home.

The Stephen Sondheim classic “Into the Woods” is on the Lohrey Stage at Theatre Memphis. It is a storybook fantasy that is a “mash-up” musical journey based on several Brothers Grimm fairy tales. The delightful romp through familiar stories questions the fairy tale ending of happily ever after. Visit theatrememphis.org for showtimes and ticket information.

MEDNIKOW MULTI MILLION DOLLAR DIAMOND SALE Diamonds4Memphis.com

T

imes change, and so too, must businesses. Mednikow has recently expanded into Nashville and Atlanta, and the next change is to dramatically reduce our multi-million dollar diamond inventory to help pay for our rapid growth. After 125 years in business, our stock of diamonds has grown to millions of dollars, and it’s no longer necessary for us to stock so much. With our well-established connections, it is now possible to locate diamonds uniquely suited to an individual customer’s needs anywhere in the world and at a moment’s notice. For this reason, we are liquidating a large part of our enormous reserve of beautiful diamonds with a one-time, historic sales event. Beginning immediately, we will reduce the price of virtually every diamond in our store to never-before-offered levels. Come early for the best selection. Because we want the customers who are fueling our expansion to benefit from these bargains, dealer inquiries will not be considered until after April 15. In addition, 0% financing will be available to qualified buyers. This unprecedented sale is the perfect way to celebrate our 125th anniversary and the expansion of our business to Atlanta and Nashville. Compare the quality, and compare the prices, at our special website developed just for this event: Diamonds4Memphis.com If you are already a customer, we look forward to seeing you again. And if you’ve ever dreamed of owning a Mednikow diamond, now is the time. When we say “goodbye” to a diamond—it’s a great buy for our customers!
