Every year, I am reminded of the kids who aren’t in the freshman class and aren’t graduating. I remember every single one of them. That is the worst of times for me, to see the future snuffed out.
More Donna Shalala quotes :
But for me, it is when a student has died. I find the death of a young person the most difficult and painful of times. To explain it to other young people, to see a bright future snuffed out, is just awful. I am haunted by those deaths.Donna Shalala
You can't have a university without having free speech, even though at times it makes us terribly uncomfortable. If students are not going to hear controversial ideas on college campuses, they're not going to hear them in America. I believe it's part of their education.Donna Shalala
