l“Human beings have done many terrible things but countless members of our species have done wonderful things as well: works of art, works of
music, discoveries of
science and technology, heroic acts of courage and sacrifice.
lOur youngsters must learn about these achievements, come to respect them, have time to reflect about them
(and what it took to
achieve them) and aspire some day
to achieve anew in the same tradition…or perhaps even to found a new tradition.”
