  1. Reblogged this on Kat's Writing Runway and commented:
    Education should be a right for all! It is too easy to keep people under control if you can keep them uneducated. Love these quotes from people (heroes) who have risked everything in support of education for all peoples in all places. #gratitude #educationisfreedom

  2. I recently saw on the news some children somewhere in Africa scaling a vertical rock face on their daily trek to school… and I wondered: where did we loose that passion? When did we stop seeing education as the portal to our futures and the fertile soil of our dreams? How sad that we take what is so readily given and demand repayment for our attendance, and reward for a piece of paper so many in this world must scale vertical rock faces for… We need to open our eyes and see education for the blessing it is.
