One college bucks trend, embraces free speech and the American Flag
By Stephanie Sanchez | January 3, 2017 | Comments


The place where Barack Obama spent the first two years of his college career was the place where a 9/11 memorial was vandalized mid-September of last year. Occidental College is now responding by implementing programs and events intended to educate students on freedom of speech and the terrorist attacks on 9/11.

The school has released a list of several activities planned by the faculty and administration that will be accomplished during the upcoming spring semester. The events include:

-“A speech and roundtable discussion on the principles of free speech on college campuses, led by Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the UC Irvine Law School and noted constitutional scholar.”

-“A performance of ‘Defamation,’ a play that will challenge students’ preconceived notions about issues such as race, class and the law by turning the audience into the jury.”

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves. Abraham Lincoln

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power. Abraham Lincoln

Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm. Abraham Lincoln

allegedly.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)
