Promoting Peace

Waking up to the news of the mass shooting in Las Vegas, I questioned everything. Life. Death. Meaning. What I would say to my daughters. What I would say to my students.

Just like you, my heart is broken; over this, over my island, over the chaos and instability we’re collectively experiencing. It’s enough to deflate the most optimistic soul. Still, we must not deflate.

Knowing that “we cannot create what we can’t see”, I sat down today to share what I see with my students. In the midst of tears, while bridging the ideas of a thousand educators before me, I strung together some possible ways we could work together; to help us accept all this with grace, so that we may work together towards a whole, peaceful, and productive world.
