Everyone Should Pledge to Help Rwanda Orphan Get through School

Dear Source,
This article is so important and relevant. Young people making a significant difference and expanding their minds in the midst of so much reported youth tragedy in today’’s papers. So many youth are searching for meaning in their lives relative to spiritual and religious beliefs and philosophies. My own young adults are in transition and this type of dialogue that the World Religion Club has engaged in is so relevant to their very present exploration and discovery and the shaping of their outlooks on life. I would encourage this club to spread the word among their peers through the use of technology –– website with most importantly a chat room for real discussion. Many of our young people have not honed the art of conversation and the skill of intellectual debate. You can truly be the inspiration embodied in Professor Melvin Tolson of the Great Debaters coming soon in theaters due to our conscious leaders like Oprah Winfrey and Denzel Washington. A club event to view this movie together is also highly recommended. Keep up the deeply profound and necessary work and challenge ALL of us to give one child one more year of education. Together, we can put Vicky through school and college. Have the Source provide the information to the general public and let each of us pledge a year. I have next year paid.
