A Tribute to the letter "R"
Universities and Money - all the time.
Universites and nepotism - most of the time.
Universities and brilliant but poor kids - seldom.
Our humanitarian side gets hurt, but our business side says "well - the expenses that universities have to go through can justify the cost."
Wait, what? Expenses like paying Snooky tens of thousands of dollars so she can give a speech about how hard students should study and how much harder students should party?
While Rutgers could have saved the same money and could give a break in the cost of books for students or wave the fee for labs etc, I am just hoping that Rutgers was able to make money somehow from this attempt of pleasing students by inviting someone from Jersey Shore.
Hope and ambition should not be taken away from any kid no matter how expensive university costs get. So let us all encourage kids and grown ups to learn to read. I know some of my friends don't like it when I push them to read even the headlines of a newspaper, I am not backing off promoting literacy.
You want to make a difference
In how things are going on
You want to make it happen
Before the day is done
You are really feeling helpless
You feel that it is too late
You don't want to learn to read now
You think it is your fate
It's not your fate not to learn
Or not to find out for sure
So believe me. because I am not lying
This is how you can cure
Cure the problems the best you can
Before they become a pain
In reading there will be no loss
There will always be a gain
You are afraid people may think
That you do not have a friend
If you read in a public place
A book from end to end
The flow of language that you understand
Has no equal or substitute
So read, that a writer or a poet
Appreciates your gratitude
