April is, among other things, National Poetry month. I like poetry and—like Audre Lorde—believe poetry is most definitely not a luxury.
Nor is the expression of gratitude.
So, this month is also a month of gratitude. As a College, we have much to be grateful for—the largest single gift in our history, the opportunity to work for justice and inclusion, approaching graduation, the beauty of Spring, and the friendship of many.
For what are you grateful today? For whom?
The education we all value is an education in critical thinking. It is also an education in generosity, in gratitude, and in joy. Happy spring!
