n addition to the requisite new back-
packs filled with pristine notebooks
and freshly sharpened pencils, many
students begin the school year carry-
ing heavy loads of stress and anxiety.
For some, stress is a chronic condition
that starts in late August and continues
throughout the year.
Parents, professionals and teens agree
that a variety of factors contribute to
this stress: excessive homework, lack of
adequate sleep, over-crowded schedules,
anxiety about grades, college applications
and standardized tests, and social pres-
sures.
Dr. Toni Kaplan, a Farmington Hills
psychologist who specializes in treating
adolescents, says stress becomes a more
frequent topic as the beginning of school
approaches.
"It started to come up recently with
kids in my practice who were away for the
summer," Kaplan said. "They came home,
school is starting, and stress levels are
escalating — and escalating quickly."

Stressed-out students need to find ways to let off steam and refocus on life.

he Jewish concept of tikkun olam (repairing the
world) was evident throughout West Bloomfield
following the death of police officer Patrick
O'Rourke, 39, who was shot and killed on Sunday evening,
Sept. 9, during an emergency call to a normally quiet
residential neighborhood. Following an 18-hour standoff
with police, the gunman, Ricky Cole, was found dead
in his bedroom as the result of a self-inflicted gunshot
wound.
Shocked and saddened by the death of O'Rourke, who
left a wife and four children ranging in age from 9 months
to 10 years, community members stepped up to help the
officer's grieving family.
Rabbi Norman Roman of Temple Kol Ami was among
those who spoke at a candlelight vigil on Tuesday, Sept.
11, in front of West Bloomfield Town Hall. Close to 1,000
people, including clergy from a variety of denominations,
attended the ceremony, where Roman offered a prayer of
comfort to O'Rourke's family and colleagues.
