(Fall River, MA, March 5, 2020)- Senator Ed Markey coordinated the donation of 25 computers from the U.S. Senate’s Computer for Schools Program to be given to the Resiliency Preparatory Academy.

“Although children are only 22 percent of the population, they’re 100 percent of our future,” said Senator Ed Markey. “Getting our students the resources they need is essential for their success. I thank Mayor Coogan for his partnership and persistent advocacy for the students of Fall River.”

“I am grateful our students will have access to high quality computers that will aid them in enhancing their education,” said Mayor Paul E. Coogan. “Thank you Senator Markey for your continued support of the youth in Fall River.”

    I managed to succeed through High School and College without a computer at all. They have these things called books and newspapers that you can actually read without the need for anything but daylight. It seems archaic but it actually works rather well.
    This is an excerpt from a speech President Kennedy delivered to a group of Nobel Laureates at the White House in 1962, Both the President and his esteemed Dinner Guests managed their feats without the benefit of computers and Thomas Jefferson managed his education without electricity while I don’t propose that we eliminate electricity from our lives this is certainly food for thought. Also, it’s worth noting that John F. Kennedy was known for his sense of humor so this is line does contain hyperbolic language.
    Extract from John F. Kennedy’s Remarks at a Dinner Honoring Nobel Prize Winners of the Western Hemisphere
    April 29, 1962.
    “I think this is the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered together at the White House, with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.”
    Someone once said that Thomas Jefferson was a gentleman of 32 who could calculate an eclipse, survey an estate, tie an artery, plan an edifice, try a cause, break a horse, and dance the minuet.
