Some years ago, my wife and I stood in front of the Stephen Sondheim Theater on West 43rd Street in New York City, waiting for the doors to open so we could attend a Broadway Performance about songwriter Carole King. When I looked across the street, I noticed a four-story red brick building. But what really caught my eye was the large stone plaque above the marquee. It read: TOWN HALL, THE LEAGUE FOR POLITICAL EDUCATION. Then beneath this were these words, “YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE.” I immediately thought of what Jesus said in John 8:32. But then it hit me! If only the American public, every politician, every school administrator, and teacher in the United States would subscribe to this motto, how much better our nation would be today. This Town Hall was opened on January 12, 1921, but its message has not only faded somewhat on the plaque over the years but in the minds of America’s educators. – Dr. Robert R Seyda
