I do not know Schuyler Foerster but neither did I know Abraham Lincoln. Mr. Foerster's address ("Dear Graduates ...," May 24 Forum) must be the second-best one to date.
How lucky for La Roche College graduates to hear a message of such importance and relevancy at their commencement. Education, global awareness and respect/compassion together is about all we need to know. Let's hope the graduates were listening.
