Living proof

Khaleej Times
His Highness Dr Shaikh Sultan bin Mohammad Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council, Ruler of Sharjah and President of American University of Sharjah (AUS), yesterday urged the graduating Class of 2008 to nurture a spirit of tolerance and cultural understanding and to contribute to the development of their societies.
...
Dr Shaikh Sultan congratulated the Class of 2008 on their achievements and hard work, and stressed on the importance of education in creating cultural understanding. "Education and knowledge are not limited to a nationality or a country. Tolerance and understanding are the means to the betterment of the world. American University of Sharjah is living proof that tolerance and peaceful co-existence between people from different cultures can be achieved," he said.
It is living proof, indeed. May it always be so.

Nice post. American University of Sharjah is an amazing institution with a unique learning environment. UAE students, and students from around the world, work together, setting the foundation for future generations.
Without sounding too cynical, hopefully the new administration will work equally harmoniously.
