Letter: Valuing Education

To the Editor:

— Many of us will go great lengths in the pursuit of education. Sometimes these sacrifices may be small things for others, but big things for us. For me, it was taking a summer class when I really could use vacation time after a rough spring semester.

However, a saying of the Prophet Mohammed comes to mind whenever I feel a need for that extra motivational push. He said, “Seek education even if you have to travel to China.”

Luckily, I do not have to go that far as George Mason’s campus is only half an hour away from me. Still, I realize that this opportunity to study is a great blessing for me and that I should appreciate every moment of it. As others around me still struggle to afford higher education, even in these great United States, I for one am very lucky and grateful.
