Niagara Gazette —
So, my son made my day when he sent me that email. He’s has signed up for a class at Princeton. I’m going to wait until the classes take a more creative bent. I’m thinking playwriting or poetry — areas I’ve really yet to really explore acedemically.
But what I find most thrilling is the idea of hundreds of thousands of people discovering just what they are capable of, all across the world. Yes, I know, some of our best schools have trained dictators and strong men who go back to their countries and create war and suffering.
But we all know those are the potential imperfections in what could be an extraordinary weaving of brain power across the planet. The smarter people get, they sooner they discover reason, and compassion, understanding and hope.
And everyone knows these are the only traits that will make the world a better place.
