Community saves

“I simply want to celebrate the fact that right near your home, year in and year out, a community college is quietly—and with very little financial encouragement—saving lives and minds. I can’t think of a more efficient, hopeful or egalitarian machine, with the possible exception of the bicycle.”

—Kay Ryan, Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress

    I like this post. It says so much with very few words. I would add the public library to the bicycle exception.

    Great blog, by the way!
