When I was young my dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

"No one will deny the pertinence of this mandate nor remain unmoved by the words community and communication . They are kindred words belonging to the commune cluster, having communism in common. We have our
communion, we truly do, when we communicate, when by speaking to each other in a common language we create a common world and constitute a public realm. We join hands by speaking and enter the round dance."

- Sherman Paul "on so many occasions, in his classes, in his books, on our February walks home up the icy wind tunnel of the Washington Street hill, retold in What Do We Represent?Walt Whitman, Representative Democracy, and Democratic Representation http://sdrc.lib.uiowa.edu/preslectures/folsom98/index.html
