Reporter Found Reaction to Speech "Heartbreaking"

Reaction to NY Times reporter Chris Hedges speech at Rockford college continued to reverberate.

"College officials have attempted in the past year to revive the ideal of civic engagement espoused by 19th-century graduate and Nobel Peace Prize winner Jane Addams. It’s an activist mindset of caring and being active in one’s community, Pribbenow said.

"They launched a marketing campaign with the slogan 'Think. Act. Give a damn.'

"Some would say that’s what some students did.

“'Damn, we’re not apathetic anymore,' said 16-year professor Hank Esponsen."

Perhaps they should invite David Horowitz to speak. He has had plenty of experience dealing with uncivil audiences.
