The Bones Not Forgotten
Blessed by courts of nobility
Voyagers of providence
Took to the seas
Under banner of God
These hunters of fortune
Set off to the New World
Seeking riches and glory
And upon virgin soil
The white face descended

“Education is your greatest weapon. With education you are the white man's equal, without education you are his victim and so shall remain all of your lives. Study, learn, help one another always.

I feel the importance of the subject, and am glad the law has been suggested.
