Strength and Spirit
Following our bridge crossing, the student photographer on our trip captured this amazing image of Fue Khang, one of the students in the Blugold Beginnings Learning Community. This picture illustrates the sheer will, courage and spirit of so many students as they strive to realize the dream of higher education. To see this strength of spirit on display in front of the memorial to the marchers of Bloody Sunday was a perfect reminder to me of my piece of the social change puzzle! I need to make opportunities for students to display their strength and provide safe spaces for them to grow and learn. Then all I need to do is get out of the way as they achieve their own greatness!
