  4. Our country, our world consists of brilliant minds. Rather then seek to destroy them, we must lift them up, nurture them, and allow them to impact our lives for the greater good. This story was joyful in a way that reveals the passion of this man to accomplish the greater good. It was also sad because for a man child that held that passion, he was destroyed by those that would rather that we all be ignorant to the point of not having the knowledge and the tools that enable us to be a better people, a better nation, a better world.

  5. Wow! How unsettling that suck a smart, kind, beautiful saw was basically torn apart by our government. It’s so unsettling.
