I attended the dedication of Lech Walesa Hall at Northeastern Illinois University. Lech Walesa, former President of Poland and recepient of the Noble Peace Prize, visited Northeastern Illinois University for the dedication and celebration. Lech Walesa played a major role in the fall of Communism in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. Lech Walesa's exemplary courage, vision, and dedication to human rights has been a great inspiration worldwide. As the City of Chicago is home to the largest Polish population outside of Poland itself, I was proud to attend this building dedication and to have the honor of meeting Lech Walesa.
