Gonzaga University announced this week that tickets are now available for “Making a Difference: An Evening with Dr. Jane Goodall,” which will be 7 p.m. April 9 at Gonzaga's McCarthey Athletic Center.

A world-renowned primatologist and conservationist, Goodall, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and United Nations Messenger of Peace, will headline the spring 2013 Gonzaga Presidential Speaker Series, part of the University’s 125th Anniversary celebration.

She will discuss her groundbreaking chimpanzee behavioral research in Africa, as well as her reasons for hope in these complex times when she visits Gonzaga, according to a press release.

“Dr. Goodall has been a transformational force in our understanding of the planet,” said Gonzaga President Thayne M. McCulloh, who asked the scientist to be part of the series in the University’s Anniversary Year. “She invites us to explore how we — as individuals and as a community — can impact our world. Certainly, her example of curiosity, persistence, intellect and courage is inspiring.”

Tickets for the lecture are available at the event website and from TicketsWest  at the following levels: premium seating $45; reserved seating $35; general admission $25; senior citizen $20; and student/educator $15. Discounts are available for groups of 20 or more. Contact Angela Ruff at (509) 313-3572 for more information.

Memorial Day and the Families Left Behind

Memorial Day was first established after the Civil War to honor those Americans killed in service to their country. Since the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan, about 7,000 American service members have been added to the rolls of dead. As I watched families laying flowers on graves, it occurred to me that every American family in some way has been touched by war.
