    It is only thanks to the efforts of people with your moral calibre J. Hickey, and intellectual acuity that democratic ideals have been developed and are articulated. Each generation must protect the liberties these rights guard otherwise we have only very quickly, there is only a veneer behind which tyranny of every kind can operate with impunity.

    Keep up this work and I hope other students/faculty are supporting and joining you.
