People from all corners of the world, know that Oklahomans belong to the land and the land they belong to is grand – those lyrics, from the Broadway musical “Oklahoma!” are the basis for S.H.I.N.E. – an acronym for Start Helping Impacted Neighborhoods Everywhere which is a program with so many upsides that it only could have been generated in the Sooner State.
And the beauty of S.H.I.N.E. is that it accomplishes so much with so few resources that it can adapt itself to fit almost any given situation. However, the bottom line is this, in order for a city to move forward, to attract business to, well, shine, it must be presented in its best light, with a gleam in its eye and a continuous positive outlook.
S.H.I.N.E manifests itself with two different programs.
“Shine for Low Level Offenders,” utilizes a form of alternative sentencing, S.H.I.N.E, keeps those convicted of non violent crimes out of prison facilities bursting at the seams while allowing those sentenced the opportunity to stay in their own homes, where they can hopefully become responsible husbands and fathers, wives and mothers. The price to be paid for this privilege is an eight hour work day, diligently cleaning, scrubbing, painting, pruning, mowing and other odd jobs on public lands contaminated with blight. These work days offer convicts exposure to honest, productive work with positive outcomes for which they can take credit. All this is achieved with minimal bureaucratic interference.
“Students For S.H.I.N.E” allows service hours for students from all walks of life to, at the outset, help their school district sparkle, while also instilling a strong sense of pride and accomplishment. As “Students for Shine” grows and prospers, students from all over Oklahoma will interface and network, knowing they have made, even in their early careers, a gift to their environment.
For the legacy and effectiveness of S.H.I.N.E to continue past any one person or group, it has be deemed necessary to form a S.H.I.N.E Foundation to maintain appropriate levels of funding needed for equipment, supplies and other necessities. Your tax free donation plus some elbow grease will continue to make Oklahoma City and, yes, the state of Oklahoma, so bright with hope and devotion that we will be seen miles into space.
