- The opening presentation, by Helene Moglen, who I think perfectly captured how Marge lived her life: "Thought and action, fused with feeling."
- A description of Marge's way of reaching students, as recounted by a faculty colleague, Paul Skenazy: "Marge broke the gravitational pull of the present and the personal by turning students' attention to the past and the political."
- The moving closing anthem, Singing For Our Lives, with Holly Near leading and all of those present joining her, and raising their voices to proclaim: "We are all in this together and we are singing, singing for our lives."
We are all in this together. We must turn our attention to the political. We must seek out work that is real. We must lift up our lives to the light of change. Our lives must be filled with action, based on thought, and fused with feeling.
