. . . So every day, including the day I was there, Heaston tells his students to keep in mind the many men and women who sacrificed their lives and money and resources to secure their right to a free and equal education and who made this the greatest country on Earth. "It is 2014," he says, "and we are truly judged by the content of our character, displayed by how we dress and how we act and the decisions we make. " We all make mistakes," he tells the students and invites each of them to make a decision that day to live a more "character-filled" life.
