Dear all:

Three members on this list provide the best in terms of service, far more than I can ever do:

Funmi on expanding our reading and creative horizons. We cannot thank her enough. I don’t know her, and I was touched as to how she reacted when she lost a friend and a relation, the professor killed by his driver.

Let us celebrate greatness when we see one: these three talented people are doing this generation a lot of service. Farooq is not driving down his ideas down anyone’s throat, just as prophets of change don’t accompany their words with AK47; Funmi is not calling anyone an illiterate for not reading her weekly recommended texts; and Yona is not asking anyone to use the resources.
