We all have a role to play to contribute to the human raise for the betterment of everyone... My notes on what we can do, you will notice a he/she remark meaning not gender specified all hands are needed to work together

If the pursuit of learning is not defended by the educated citizen,it will not be defended at all. For there is always be those who scoff at intellectuals, who cry out against research, who seek to limit our educational system. Modern cynics and skeptics see no more reason for landing a man on the moon which we shall do than the cynics and skeptics of half a millennium ago saw for the discovery of this country.

They see no harm in paying those to whom they entrust the minds of their children a smaller wage than is paid to those to whom they entrust the care of their plumbing. But the educated citizen knows how much more there is to know. He/she knows that knowledge is power more so today than ever before, he/she knows that only an educated and informed people will be a free people; that the ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of all; and that if we can, as Jefferson put it, "Enlighten the people generally", " tyranny and the oppressions of mind and body will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day". And, therefore, the educated citizen has a special obligation to encourage the pursuit of learning, to promote exploration of the unknown, to preserve the freedom of inquiry, to support the advancement of research, and to assist at every level of government the improvement of education for all over the nation from grade school to graduate school.

Secondly, the educated citizen has an obligation to serve the public. He/she may be a precinct worker or a president. He/she may give his/her talents at the courthouse, Assembly, state house, the embassy.He/she may be a civil servant or a senator, a candidate or a campaign worker, a winner or a loser. But he/she must be a participant and role player and not a spectator
