“ It’s like I know that I am free, but more than that I fully understand that no one can stand in my way or stop me once I am on a mission. Too long I have waited for others to right wrongs that I may see, but, through a civic program, I realize that I am free to act on the issue at my own will... I have the freedom to ask questions and expect them to be answered. ” Listening to the Students’ Voices Michael Kuhne, 2001
