Respond to the Coming Climate Crisis

Scott D. Miller, president of Virginia Wesleyan University, writes: A SIGNATURE BOOK by future President John F. Kennedy was “Why England Slept,” his account of England in the years prior to World War II and the nation’s vulnerability to Nazi aggression. The war proved to be the most catastrophic ever, ushering in the atomic age in which all life on Earth could be extinguished following the next — and ultimate — global conflict.

A college is a small society of relationships and lifelong friendships, a place of intellectual and cultural enrichment, a worthy investment for generous benefactors as well as a provider of extensive community services. The tragedy of New Rochelle becomes more painful in the realization that one man’s actions ruined the legacy of generations.
