Celebrate the pursuit of a better world

To the editor:

With all its faults, I believe that America is the greatest country in the world. With even more certainty, I believe that Oberlin College is this country’s finest institution. In America and in Oberlin, far too many young and old people are committed to the pursuit of a much better world to fail.

Throughout America, something exhilarating is under way — the process to elect the next president of the United States for a better America. And at Oberlin College, this new semester opens up unlimited opportunities for black students and all others to obtain the best education possible so as to be prepared to deepen and broaden our shared sense of peace, justice, and liberation for humans. Celebrate this day.
