Why are the subjects you teach important?:
For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others. -- Nelson Mandela <br /><br />A man who stands for nothing will fall for anything. .��_ Malcolm X <br /><br />Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.-- Gloria Steinem
