  • When I first visited the Henry George School, I came as a libertarian in politics, an agnostic in religion, and an observer in social organizations. Two years later, I have a concern for social justice, an appreciation for the truths of the Hebrew scriptures, and am an active participant in our community. How this came about I cannot fully explain. I can tell you that a transformation did occur and it occurred over a period in which I participated in over 60 classes centered on the writings of Henry George. — David Hershey, financial analyst
