“Just wanted to share my favorite quote ever as I just walk past the actual inscription on the wonderful building of the Boston Public Library.”
THE COMMONWEALTH (of Massachusetts) REQUIRES THE EDUCATION OF THE PEOPLE AS THE SAFEGUARD OF ORDER AND LIBERTY.
Boston Public Library Board of Trustees
Editors note: We agree that education represents the foundation for liberty and freedom – and that though education is often threatened or attacked by various sovereign authorities or others who would seek to seize control of a people – as university students, we join the Boston Public Library Board of Trustees in requiring and protecting education – for all. And in so doing, we recall those university students in Syria and now those in Mexico who – in the pursuit of their education and liberty – have died.
