Note to my students for the beginning of the Spring semester:

Tonight, I am watching this documentary.  I am reminded that none of you will have to endure this type of violence to fight for your rights and your lives.  Please remember this when you think that time is too limited, that life is too complex to fight for injustice.  Remind yourselves that you are standing on the shoulders of Giants, brave men and women who truly had their lives to lose – that your work is a reflection in these pools of history. If you do not continue the work of our ancestors, our future may drown in inequality, proliferation of poverty and war and the corruption of OUR democracy. Sending my thanks for your dedication DM students, here’s to a challenging and beautiful Spring semester.
