Knowledge is, indeed, power, but for me it is more than that:
Knowledge is the key to potential, freedom and the fuel for courage.
It only becomes power when we take responsibility and use it.
When next we think of:
The land of the free,
And the home of the brave,
Let us not forget the knowledge we have,
Let us not leave our power in the control of others,
Let us take it with courage, share it,
But above all, let us use it and always be willing to learn.
