"God has bestowed upon you intelligence and knowledge. Do not extinguish the lamp of Divine Grace and do not let the candle of wisdom die out in the darkness of lust and error. For a wise man approaches with his torch to light up the path of mankind." ~ Kahlil Gibran
A candle is the symbol of Alpha Lambda Delta, the National Honor Society for first year college students, and part of their purpose is to spread the love of learning. Tomorrow the children here in Virginia Beach return to the classroom and I'm sure some are excited while others are not. Parents almost universally are overjoyed. The school supplies at Walmart have been decimated, the school clothes and uniforms picked over, and the backpacks are ready. And so tomorrow, all over Hampton Roads, teachers begin again to spread their love of learning. In doing so they, like the wise man, light new candles to show the way.
