From the Paper:

"In the book, "Education for Critical Consciousness", written by popular educator and philosopher, Paulo Freire, readers are presented with the opportunity to critically examine society and its many flaws through the hopeful lenses of social justice, education, humanity, and shared dialogue by all members of society. Similar to the themes expressed in Dorfman's poem, written one year following September 11, Freire is adamant in his belief that societal transformation can only come about when all persons recognize their membership in the human race and their potential to serve as change agents through shared dialogue, reflection and action, and a desire and willingness to understand the plight of others, irregardless of socioeconomic status, racial, ethnic, and/or religious barriers."
