“Our Waldorf education instilled (in us) an obligation to act. I feel that my classmates and I have an obligation to make the world better than we found it.”

“When you grow up in a Waldorf educational environment you learn to assume that your opinions do matter. We were encouraged to be ourselves. As individuals who are not afraid to express and ‘do.’”
