  1. Pretty touching stuff—never underestimate the emotive powers of beautiful photography combined with well-chosen music!

    Beyond that, this is a good venue to be showing it as well—to a student audience.

    While students go to college for many different reasons and have many different experiences while they are there, something that I hope all students get out of their education is a sense of the world outside the one they have had personal exposure to and the absolute magnitude of the problems that face our species.

    Additionally, borrowing from one of my undergrad professors, college students in the US, as a population, have an immense power to bring about positive change in this world and, I would add, the responsibility to do so.

    Though knowledge is powerful, images such as these are inspirational. I hope those on this campus choosing the career path they will follow after they leave are exposed to a good deal of both. However much of ourselves we decide to devote to the betterment of others is a personal choice we all make and I hope that students here (and elsewhere) have a college experience that will allow them to make an informed decision when that time comes.
