Dear Mr. President:
Many, if not most of my peers and colleagues, at Rutgers University were delighted at your presence at our 250th Commencement; I appreciate your mindfulness of their sentiments. For over three years many from the Rutgers community worked hard to ensure your attendance, their diligence paid off. However, I would like to thank you for an entirely different reason.
Mr. President, I was one of the student organizers who lobbied against Secretary Rice’s speaking invitation in 2014.
