A few minutes ago I was startled from my paper by the sound of an approaching train. This was odd because Oberlin has only a couple feet of track--a sculpture in front of Talcott representing Oberlin's history as a stop in the Underground Railroad.

Then the train grew louder and louder, and I looked outside and reailzed it was not a train at all, but a large group of African-American students marching past the sculpture, beating on drums in a rhythm suggestive of a train coming down the tracks, and singing songs of freedom.

And I could not help but smile.

He told me to email mine, too, but he also wants hardcopy.
