Congratulations! I'm honored to be here. I'm fascinated by your enthusiasm and potential. As a reporter, I've spent a lifetime watching people. At commencements it's fun to study your faces and try to pick who of you will achieve the most. If the past is repeated, then there are a number of you who have been operating below the radar and over the next several years will separate yourselves from the pack. Who are these people with all this potential? I think it's you - if you have the right plan. That's what I want to talk about today.

Relatively peaceful since 1998, the country is still recovering from long years of violence and is experiencing continuing division. Yet, as a fragile peace developed during the last decade, educators and social workers began to address the attitudes and circumstances underlying the sectarian conflict. Early childhood educators, with the help of faculty at Queen’s University, are now implementing an anti-bias curriculum in the schools, one which is designed to inhibit and perhaps reverse religious and ethnic polarization.
